Summary

Loko Kaipuni (SIHP # 50-80-14-4573), a Hawaiian fishpond located in Waikīkī, O’ahu, Hawai’i, was used during both the pre-Contact and historic periods. In 1919 and 1928 it was filled with coral dredge from the Ala Wai Canal. A sediment sample collected from the center of the monitor trench excavation was submitted for pollen and macrofloral analysis to establish baseline environmental information for the vicinity of the fishpond and to answer questions of how the fishpond was used.
