Kaka'ako As We Knew It Product Description:

Kaka‘ako was once a poor residential neighborhood, but it was rich in the spirit of the people who lived there. Members of multi-ethnic groups formed a tightly knit community that few could penetrate. This book recalls the camaraderie, carefree lifestyle, and sharing of cultures that existed in the Kaka‘ako of old.

Former residents share their memories with longing and nostalgia to recapture their fun-filled days of outdoor recreation, music, cultural activities, and the feeling of ohana that permeated the district. There is a song by an unknown composer that is often sung by the former residents. That song is entitled “Kaka‘ako No Ka Oi”—Kaka‘ako is the best!
