ABOUT US

The Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs is a not-for-profit organization and we are the oldest Hawaiian community-based advocacy movement. Our organization is a federation of individual Hawaiian Civic Club located across Hawai’i and across the continental United States, and 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.
