Hawaii Island Festival: ‘Honoring our Kupuna’ (Aug. 27-Sept. 17)


Our kupuna are a big part of our lives and the reason we have become involved in giving back to our community. Our kupuna have blessed us with much knowledge and we need to treasure this.

Over the years we have lost many valuable kupuna within our community. For this reason, we have chosen to honor the lives of the kupuna that we have lost as well as those who are still with us.

As they have and continue to provide us with wisdom and guidance, we want them to know that we value their lives and their teachings. They have helped us to become who we are and thus we feel it appropriate that we give them the honor they so deserve.
