2018 Club Report


Na Keiki O Hawai'i would like to thank our mainland council and our Oahu council for allowing us to be apart of the yearly convention and connecting with our people from abroad. 2017 was a burst of activities and ended our year with a wonderful experience in Seattle.


We celebrated Kuhio Day in March and had a late summer picnic in August 2018, we definitely had a busy year on an individual basis and we are proud to announce that our Vice-president Natasha Kahele and her Ohana has re-opened her Poke shop. (Aloha Poke Stop now Lei's Poke Stop).


We have been blessed throughout the year with Papa Ola Lokahi sharing their mana'o and allowing us to be creative with the tools they have shared. Our community learned and experienced lei po'o making, lomilomi, cordage, laulau with sweet potato and we also learned about diabetes, wellness, high blood pressure and more. We are humbled by the warms and knowledge of Papa Ola Lokahi and we thank them for always keeping us connected to our history.


Our Club is still projecting a strong Strategic Plan that has not come into effect yet but by the end of 2018 we should have all our planning in place.


NKOH Hawaiian Civic Club looks forward for our annual Christmas Pa'ina at the end of 2018 and we are excited for 2019 starting in January with Aloha Days, Papa Ola Lokahi and a concert by Kaumaka'iwa Kanaka'ole.
