2018 Club Report

 

The Waialua Hawaiian Civic Club is proud to serve the moku of Waialua.  We hold our meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at the historic Waialua Court House.  Our members continue to volunteer within our kaiāulu perpetuating our heritage and culture through ʻauamo kuleana, aloha ʻāina and mālama kekahi i kekahi.  Aloha & Mahalo i nā kūpuna o kēia ʻāina kaulana ʻo Waialua. This year the Waialua Hawaiian Civic Club collaborated with the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s Anthropology & Ethnic Studies Department to host an ethnographic/oral history field school that interviewed and documented stories from our beloved kūpuna and ʻohana of Waialua.  Several Waialua Hawaiian Civic Club members participated in the field school study as interviewees and some as students of Dr. Kawika Tengan (professor at UH Mānoa & lead of the ethnographic field school).

 

Many of monthly meetings were filled with mele, kanikapila, and hula.  Our members graciously bring mea ʻai to share with each other as we discuss important news about our kaiāulu and inform each other about upcoming events throughout Oʻahu and the rest of the pae ʻāina.
