2017 Club Report


During the 2017-year KAHHCC members had opportunities to participate in hands-on activities and programs, which enabled them to expand their Hawaiian cultural knowledge and experiences. Alakaʻi, who malama their close relationships with their kupuna, are the storehouses of such valuable knowledge of the arts, ʻolelo Hawaiʻi, and personal ʻohana histories and willingly share at each monthly club gathering. Living so far away from Ka Pae ʻĀina, hui members are always eager to immerse themselves at these special learning occasions.

Particularly in February, as well as throughout the year, members were encouraged to “malama kou kino” by taking advantage of health screening fairs in their individual communities as well as by regularly visiting their own healthcare professionals. Following organizational and business matters in March and April, members continued in their ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi and ʻohana history activity. A hulu product, which the members learned to make, was used to decorate graves at Iosepa during the Memorial Day weekend, to which members were again encouraged to participate in the annual three days filled with a variety of workshops, entertainment, service project, and food. In July hui members gathered together to pause, reflect and acknowledge appreciation to be a part of this great country and enjoy a pancake breakfast. The highlight of the year was the annual ʻOhana Day in August. Members and friends learned to clean and prepare their ipu. They also learned ipu protocol and how to paʻi hula. In addition there were ukulele classes, a hula class, outdoor Hawaiian games and, of course, ʻāina awakea. The year will round out with a hui gathering in October and finally a December Christmas activity.
