Kaiser High School - November 12, 2016

We had a great event in November with Kaiser High School students in our Maunalua Junior Konohiki Program. We were really excited to also introduce our new lesson utilizing a traditional Hawaiian Sailing Canoe as one of the rotations. This was the final field day for 2016 as part of the Ama Olukai Grant that kicked off our programming. After a successful first year, we are currently working on more funding for 2017 to continue progressing our mission. Stay tuned. Aloha! 

Maunalua Past, Present, Future - Huli

Great interview with Anne Marie Kirk of Livable Hawaii Kai Hui introducing Huli on the public television segment, Maunalua: Past, Present, Future. 

He Lono Moku Environmental Report

Highly recommend checking out the "He Lono Moku" Environmental Report produced by some of the leading environmental groups and individuals here in Hawai'i to give a baseline report on the current status of our environment. Its a very brief, easy to read report with lots of illustrations to bring some of the main ideas to life. Important for everybody who lives here to understand the health of our natural resources here in the islands. Read the report here:


With the IUCN World Conservation Congress being held in the United States for the first time, Hawai‘i’s environment and sustainability efforts are on the world stage. He lono moku recognizes this global momentum and highlights priorities for environmental equilibrium in Hawai‘i. This state of the environment report shares our advances in freshwater security, renewable energy, and community-based marine management—and is candid about where our efforts are falling well short.

Each year, he lono moku will track and share progress across a variety of environmental topics. At the center of the world’s largest ocean and with a tourism economy directly linked to our environment, we cannot afford to overlook our precious natural resources. 

Huli Booth at the Olukai Ho'olaule'a

This year Huli was fortunate to receive funding from the Ama Olukai Foundation. The Ama Olukai Foundation is a non-profit arm of the footwear company Olukai, the mission of the organization is to honor organizations who preserve and celebrate the cultural heritage and Aloha Spirit of Hawai'i. At this years 2015 Ho'olaulea, Huli was asked to host a booth to inform race goers about our program. To create a conversation with booth goers we hosted an art project where we asked individuals to write down and be photographed with one thing that they would "HULI" or change in their daily lives or community. 

Hahaione 4th Graders - February 19, 2016

On February 19th we had another awesome field day, this time with the Hahaione 4th graders. This was our first event as part of grant received from the Ama Olukai Foundation who we are so grateful for. They have been a major supporter of our organization since day one and we can't thank them enough for helping us get the "Maunalua Junior Konohiki" program off the ground. Felt that we had to share this picture of how the day started. One of the best double rainbows we've ever seen right outside Hui Nalu Canoe Club as we were getting the Canoe prepped for the day. Couldn't have a better blessing. Mahalo to all of our supporters. We do it for the keiki. ALOHA 

Mālama Honua Learning Center Field Day January 8, 2016

We had another awesome field day, this time with Mālama Honua Learning Center Kindergarteners through 3rd graders to kick off the new year on January 8th. The students had an exceptional learning day out in Maunalua Bay and we were even able to implement some new activities including conducting the plankton tow off of a Hui Nalu double hulled canoe and teaching the students the same star compass used by master navigator Mau Piailug. We are so grateful to our partners Olukai, Kahi Kai, Malama Aina Foundation, Polynesian Voyaging Society, Hui Nalu Canoe Club, Department of Forestry & Wildlife, Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center, KUA, and Kanehunamoku Voyaging Academy for helping us put on a successful event. We even got some cool press coverage from Oiwi Television. Check it out and can't wait for the next event! Aloha 

First Field Day

Last month we had our first "Maunalua Junior Konohiki" field day ever with the 3rd graders from Hahaione Elementary! We couldn't have asked for a more successful event joined by our partners PVS, DOFAW, Malama Aina Foundation, Kaha Kai, and Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center. The kids had an amazing learning day and were ecstatic about getting to spend some time outdoors. Enjoy a few pictures from the day. Can't wait till the next one!
