2017 Club Report


Celebrating Our Prince


This year we celebrated the146th birthday of HRH Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniʻanaʻole. The Club was joined by club member and Kumu Hula, Pualeilani Kamahoahoa and Nā Keiki o Ke Kula o Kūhiō from Prince Jonah Kūhiō Elementary School for all the Club sponsored festivities. Together, we gave tribute at the Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniʻanaʻole Festival held on the campus of Prince Jonah Kūhiō Elementary, held services at Maunaʻala and Kawaihaʻo Church, and marched in the Kūhiō parade. At each event, Nā Keiki provided oli, hula, and makana led by Festival Prince Etuini Sunia and Festival Princess Saphyre Almeida-Kong. At Maunaʻala, Nā Keiki member Dylan Chelliah from Sri Lanka, gave a masterful speech on the legacy of our Prince and his importance to youth. Our Club also had the honor to lead Nā Keiki at the Kūhiō parade.


Moving Slow to Move Fast, Together


This year has been one of remembering and preparation as we go through a strategic planning process for our Club. The oli Nā Punaluʻu was composed by the incomparable Aaron Mahi for this journey. We have spent intentional time apart on retreat and general membership meetings to remember the past, take stock of today, and prepare for tomorrow. One of the ways a kupuna put it at a retreat in Punaluʻu was “in order to move fast, we must move slow [first].” Indeed, we will move slow to allow our hui to move together, as we live out our values and take steps, together, towards a flourishing lāhui.


Moon Calendars and Scholarships


The Club awarded over $15,000 in scholarships this year. To support this effort, we sell the annual PKHCC Hawaiian Moon Calendar. The 2018 calendars are available here:
