S3 Ep. 47 Exploring the History of Kalo and Bringing it the Continent with Leialoha Ka‘ula, Jonathan Cruz, and Tara Maudrie The HPP Podcast

    • Education

In this episode, Tara Maudrie is in conversation with Leialoha Ka‘ula and Jonathan Cruz about their project planting Kalo on the continent. They discuss their ancestral connection to Kalo and how the garden is not just a space for growing food, but it's also a way to perpetuate their culture. They explain how growing Kalo has become a metaphor for their organization; it’s reflective of their ability to adapt, be resilient, and to continue on despite the hardships that they encounter. The garden has allowed them to build a relationship with the community, other Hawaiians on the continent, and other Native communities as a way to decolonize and dismantle Western ideologies that they were forced to assimilate to.

This episode references the article titled “Growing Kalo (Taro) in the Continental United States” by Leialoha Ka‘ula, BA, Jonathan Cruz, BS, Natlie Dutro, BS, Donna Ching, MN, Kawehilani Wong, BA, and Alexandra Malia Jackson, PhD.
