Kipahulu 'Ohana

Kipahulu logo

In Hawai'i, on the Island of Maui, there is a place called Kipahulu.  Long before the first Europeans arrived on Maui, Kipahulu was prized by the Hawaiian ali'i (royalty) for its fertile 'aina (land) and kai (ocean). In 1995, a small group of Native Hawaiian residents came together to revive, restore, and share the practices of traditional Native Hawaiian culture with others in Kipahulu. We, the Kipahulu 'Ohana, are a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating residents and visitors of the "ways of old" through cultural demonstrations and hands-on activities. Using the wisdom and spiritual guidance of our kupuna (elders, learned teachers), we seek to re-establish a Hawaiian lifestyle in Kipahulu. By initiating sustainable projects, dividing the labor, and sharing the results we will preserve our culture.  For more information call (808)248-8974, e-mail ohana@kipahulu.org, or visit www.kipahulu.org.
