Images taken in 1994, 2012, 2015 and 2017 on accesses arranged by PKO, Protect Kahoʻolawe ʻOhana and KIRC (Kaho'olawe Island Reserve Commission). Much of the island is off-limits because it has not been cleared for UXO (unexploded ordnance). The ʻ94 images are 6X7, taken on 120 film, and all others are on 4X5 film.

The Ala Loa: Long Path
Volunteers work to create a pathway completely around the perimeter of the island, making possible the ceremonial opening of the Makahiki, the season of Lono. In that ceremony, a representation of Lono is carried around an island in a clockwise direction. The opening of the Makahiki coincides with the first appearance of the Plaedies, the Makaliʻi star cluster.
