Traditional Hawaiian life was based on the ahupua'a system of land management. An ahupua'a, or land division, was typically wedge-shaped and extended from the top of the mountain into the outer edge of the ocean reef. ʻŌiwi maintained an agricultural system that contained two major classes: irrigated and rain-fed systems. In the irrigated systems, mostly grew taro (kalo), and in the rain-fed systems, they grew mostly ʻuala (sweet potatoes), yams, and dryland taro in addition to other small crops. ʻŌiwi believed that the land, the sea, the clouds and all of nature had a certain interconnectedness, which is why they used all of the resources around them to reach the desired balance in life. Sustainability was maintained by the konohiki and kahuna—priests, who restricted the fishing of certain species during specific seasons. Over time, through battles and political alliances, boundaries have moved or combined with some with the same names divided even further throughout history.
