A town hall meeting about a project to lessen flood risks at the Ala Wai Canal was held Tuesday evening at Manoa Valley District Park. Pictured speaking is Imaikalani Winchester, a kumu at Halau Ku Mana charter school in Makiki whose campus and loi sites would be affected by the project. Winchester questioned why the project developers did not consult with the Native Hawaiian community, whose ancestors engineered the perfect water systems.
