ASSOCIATION OF HAWAIIAN CIVIC CLUBS
Founded by Prince Kūhiō in 1918, the Hawaiian Civic Club movement is the oldest Native Hawaiian community-based advocacy movement. The Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs is a not-for-profit organization that is a confederation of individual and autonomous Hawaiian Civic Clubs located across Hawai‘i and across the continental United States. Our clubs are organized into five councils: Moku o Keawe (Hawai‘i Council), Nā Hono A‘o Pi‘ilani (Maui Council), Ke One o Kākuhihewa (O‘ahu Council), Moku o Manokalanipō (Kaua‘i Council), and Nā Lei Makalapua (Mainland Council). We are governed by a 18-member volunteer Board of Directors and advocates for improved welfare of Native Hawaiians in culture, health, economic development, education, social welfare, and nationhood, and perpetuates and preserves language, history, music, dance and other Native Hawaiian cultural traditions.
