He lau ke kino o ia wahine ʻo Haumea 

 Our waʻa,  KeaolewaoKalihi , has been repurposed from the invasive albizia found here on our ʻāina of ʻŌuaua and Māluawai. KeaolewaoKalihi is our living example of perpetuating and practicing ʻike kūpuna, ancestral knowledge, with our community, our kānaka, and youth.  Photo credit: Kim Moa

..to everyone who helped, attended, and celebrated from afar, and all who supported us over the years for coming to our 10 year anniversary waiwai celebration of abundance, He Lau Ke Kino! We are beyond grateful and inspired by all the aloha and support we received by each and every one of you who believe in the importance of mālama ʻāina and culturally based organizations to strengthen, uplift, reconnect, and heal our communities. Your support has stoked the fire within us to stay strong, inspired, and motivated by and for Kalihi and the pae ʻāina o Hawaiʻi for the next 10, 20, 100 years and many generations after. All funds raised will help develop Ola Koa, Hoʻoulu ʻĀinaʻs sustainable forestry & invasive repurposing mill and woodshop. 

If you wish to donate to Hoʻoulu ʻĀina, we would be grateful!
