HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - We continue this morning with a look back at this year's ʻAha Kâne that took place over the weekend. Our ʻÂhaʻi ʻÔlelo Ola crew caught up with the ʻohana that was tasked with feeding the estimated 600 men at this three-day conference.

We got I'd say about 600 lbs. just kalua pig we did about 150 lbs. of sweet potatoes just for this two days.

Feeding the masses is a family affair for the ʻOhana Hoe.

My crew is mostly ohana! Cousins, brothers, a few friends, aunties, uncles, grandpas. There's about four generations of just family here.

I was always interested in food preparation. Not only did I do taro, ulu, sweet potato, but I also did a variation of limu that I grew up enjoying gathering.

It doesn't take much to eat healthy it takes about the same effort to eat healthy as it does to go to McDonalds, Jack in the Box and stand in line and wait for your order it takes just about that much work.

ʻAʻohe hana nui o ka ʻai pono ʻana. Like nô paha ka nui hana me ke kû laina ma McDonalds a Jack in the Box.

The ʻAha Kâne was billed as a health conference, making the connection with the past for the men of today.

Hawaiians wasn't unhealthy. We weren't that kind to be diabetics and have all these big problems so if they can take away to stay healthy and it helps them live longer for their kids.
