2018 Club Report


The Princess Ka'iulani Hawaiian Civic Club (PKHCC) strives to perpetuate the Hawaiian culture through education, lokahi and the Aha Moku. The only one of its kind in the United States, and restored from the 9th century by John Kaimikawa, the Aha Moku was brought to life by kupuna and expert lawaia (ocean practitioners) and mahiai (agriculture practitioners) through a series of state-wide puwalu from 2004 through 2006. In 2007, through the efforts of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, the Aha Moku Bill authored by 200+ Native Hawaiians from all eight main Hawaiian Islands (many of whom were Hawaiian Civic Club members) was taken to the Legislature. Governor Lingle signed the Aha Moku Bill into law when it became Act 212. In 2012, again with the strong support of the civic clubs, Governor Abercrombie passed Act 288, SLH 2012. Act 288 is the Aha Moku in its current format. The mandate of the Aha Moku is to bring forth the voices of the people of site-specific ahupua'a in regards to natural and cultural resources of that place; be guided by the generational wisdom of kupuna and expert resource practitioners who have traditional knowledge of how to sustain their ecosystem and environment; and to advise the Chairperson of the Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), its divisions and the Legislature on natural and cultural resources in Hawaii. The Aha Moku is only one of the many successful results of the perseverance and strength of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. PKHCC members have worked in 2018 to educate, and collaborate with others such as the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Hawaii County Councils, Papa Ola Lokahi and other Native Hawaiian organizations. Aha Moku is a child of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. Mahalo Ke Akua!
