Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club 2012
by Kahu Ryan A. Kalama
Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club has served the community since 1960 sharing a variety of Hawaiian Cultural Traditions, Arts and Crafts, Mele and Oli, Hula Kahiko and 'Auana, Canoeing and Surfing, Imu and Local Cooking, History Studies of our Ancestors and Ali’i, and sharing storytelling and legends to the entire community, interest groups, schools, and special tours.
Currently Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club is located in the Windward/Kailua Ahupua'a at the Windward / Kailua YMCA and Ulupo Heiau, whose mission is to respectfully enhance our Hawaiian Culture through their displays, demonstrations, and presentation programs. They are known World Wide for their Restoration and Preservation of Historical Sacred Land Sites, Kawainui and Hamakua Wetlands, two canals, fish ponds, hiking trails, coral reefs, the Mokulea Islands, and their world famous Kailua Beach and Special Environmental Program Activities. Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club has continued to serve their community by providing educational environmental tour programs for a variety of organizations, to our local schools, and reaching out to educational institutes from all over the world. They continually welcome everyone to volunteer and participate in their continuous task to maintain and Malama their Ahupua'a and surrounding concerned agricultural areas to preserve our Lo'i farms, Ethno Botanical Gardens, Hawaiian native plants, Hawaiian native birds, and creatures.
We are currently collaborating with ‘Ahahui Malama I Ka Lokahi Environmental Committee, Ho'olaulima Planning Committee, Ancestors of Kailua Ohana, Kailua Historic Society, Kailua High School Alumni, Kailua Chamber of Commerce, Kailua Neighborhood Board, Waimanalo 24 Neighborhood Board, Kailua-Lani Kai Circle, I Love Kailua and I Love Hula Committees, Kauhale O Kailua Ohana Outreach for Youth and Families, Hawaiian Civic Club of Ko'olaupoko Kane'ohe, and Hawaiian Civic Club of Waimanalo to improve our Cultural Rights and protect our 'Aina from Ma uka to Ma kai by monitoring our entire environment, our wild life, our agriculture, our resources, our people, our youth, and our Ohana.
“E ALA E NA MAMO, E OLA NA PUA”
(Be Alert Oh People that Our Children May Live)
Our Logo continues to be our passion, purpose, and motivation of the members of the Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club to Malama our 'aina, our Ahupua’a, our Moku, and our Hawaiian Islands.
