What We Do

Upcountry Maui Hui

In response to Maui's devastating fires, we've formed the Upcountry Maui Hui. Focused on community care, we coordinate vital efforts like clean water access, fire mitigation, and kupuna check-ins. As we adapt to this evolving situation, we're always on the lookout for helping hands.

Maui Waʻa Mental Health Restoration Project

In the wake of community upheaval, we're harnessing the healing power of Hawaiʻi's waters. Our initiative, in partnership with KailuaKanu, crafts waʻa to restore cultural ties and offer solace to the distressed. These waʻa not only symbolize resilience but reconnect us to the ocean's therapeutic embrace.

Keiki Clinics

Our future rests with our keiki. Through our clinics, young ones alongside adults delve into the heart of Hawaiian values—from discipline and unity to humility and honor. Through physical activities and waʻa teachings, we're passing down our legacy, ensuring that our traditions paddle forward.
