2017 Council Report


Aloha mai kakou! The Mainland Council welcomes you to the 58th Convention of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. We are honored by your presence. A special mahalo to the leadership and members of Moku`aina Wakinekona HCC for being such gracious hosts.


Today, we highlight the specific efforts of 2 clubs. First, we commend Lau Kanaka No Hawai`i HCC for their community work and for hosting the MCAHCC May 5-6, 2017 meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. Attendees visited the Saguaro Correctional Center in Eloy, Arizona. Warden Todd Thomas provided a briefing and tour of the facilities. We spent time in both Hawai'i modules. MCAHCC put on a "spur of the moment" sharing of music and hula. Pomaika'i Gaui, Sammi Pedro, and Aunty Carol Johnson served as musicians. Aunty Carol and Pi'ilani Lewis (Arizona Pelekikena) provided much appreciated comic relief! As we sang Hawai'i Aloha, you could feel the mana in those modules. Before we exited the 2nd module they recited Ka Pule a Ka Haku for us. #ChickenSkin. On May 6, 2017 we enjoyed Lau Kanaka’s annual Lu`au – Scholarship Fundraiser. The auditorium was packed with `ohana and community supporters. Ho`omaika`i!


Second, Ainahau O Kaleponi HCC and Pacific Islander Health Partnership tag-teamed to host the MCAHCC during the August 11-12, 2017 meeting in Orange County, CA. Mahalo nui to AHCC Pelekikena Annelle Amaral for conducting a Resolutions Writing workshop that provided critical guidance and breakout practice for Council attendees. Our weekend focus was on convention preparation. With work completed, MCAHCC participated in Ainahau O Kaleponi HCC’s 35th Annual Scholarship Lu`au as the choral introduction in tribute to Queen Lili`uokalani.


With the approval of a Club Charter from the AHCC, MCAHCC is eager to welcome Na `O`iwi O Hawai`i Northern Nevada Hawaiian Civic Club of Reno, NV at this 58th AHCC Convention.
