Announcement of the trust

Uncle George Lewis Lanakilakeikiahialii Naope may have left us and elevated from this world, yet his legacy of aloha lives on. George dedicated his entire life to the spirit-of-aloha and perpetuating Hawaiian culture through hula across Hawaii and around the world. As anyone who ever met Uncle would know, he would expect his legacy to continue beyond his earthly years.

Both the Trust and the LLC grew out of Uncle George Naope’s strong desire to protect his personal interests and legacy, yet most of all to be sure his vision for a Living Cultural Museum comes to pass.

His eyes would spark as he would passionately state: “My life, my legacy is for the people of Hawaii, the people of the world. I want a museum, not the kind with dead people, a Living Cultural Museum.”
