2018 Club Report


The Ko`olauloa Hawaiian Civic Club was founded on June 14, 1924 by William Isaac Kanakanui, a highly respected leader of the Hau`ula community, and was chartered on April 16, 1966. We are a charitable non-profit organization and currently the second oldest club with in the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs organization.


Our mission is to preserve and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture, its music, language and arts. We protect, respect and steward sacred sites and places in our community while supporting our Native Hawaiian students in pursuing a higher education.


Our partnership with HILT and Hui o Hau'ula to malama Maunawila Heiau has been a big on-going project for several years and dependent on other organization and groups in our community with experiences and expertise that helps us to accomplish our mission of protecting the lands that sustain us. We know that protecting Hawaii's precious places such as Maunawila is big work, so much of our appreciation goes out to Rebekah Walker & Tevita Kaili, Associate Professor of Anthropology from BYU-Hawaii and all the college students, who were a tremendous help in clearing the land and completing various projects.


We took part in many of events though out the year including Makahiki at the Royal Hawaiian Court Yard, the Waimanalo HCC fundraiser, the Ko'olaupoko Ku I Ke Kamaaina Awards & Benefit Luncheon, the Prince Kuhio Ho`olaule`a and Ho`ike`ike at Kapi`olani Park and entered a decorated vehicle in the Aloha Week Floral Parade. The Aloha Ko`olauloa, North Shore Ocean Fest, Hau`ula Ho`olaule`a, and the Homeless Retreat at Hau`ula Beach Park are some of the events that our club members support to share and support our heritage. We also hold monthly Board and General Membership meeting and attended the quarterly Oahu Council meetings.


Mahalo to Kauai Council for hosting this years’ convention.
