Aloha kakou. Archaeology in Kohala is always windy- your ears burn, your eyes stream, and you end up with dirt packed into every crack of your body and clothing. The winds in Kohala even have names, depending upon when and from where they blow. Sweet Kris (hair-in-my-face) and Jillian Swift (the coalminer, aka @swiftasafox ) are in this picture from 2009, excavating a platform that was once the foundation of an ancient Hawaiian farmhouse. Aloha ‘aina.
