2017 Club Report


Ke welina mai nei,


2017 has been an incredible year for us. Our continued partnership with the UPIHC and the Utah Office of Health Disparities, and new partnership with Teuila Womenʻs Circle in addition to our club activities and other existing partnerships, have kept us engaged, and allowed us to increase our impact in the community. We are still actively supporting our Kiaʻi Mauna, and sharing our manaʻo through programs and classes at institutions such as the University of Utah and Salt Lake Community College.


We were fortunate to be asked to partner with the Living Planet Aquarium for their first celebration of World Oceans Day, on Saturday June 10th and Sunday June 11th. While we wish they were more open to exploring and sharing traditional practices and current initiatives, we did enjoy sharing a moʻolelo, “Nā Makana A Nā Iʻa, The Fish and Their Gifts”, with visitors.

One highlight of our year is our annual participation in the Mana 5K event. It is an amazing experience to be a part of getting our community healthy, while also raising funds for families in need in our community. We are blessed to have been a part of this initiative!


We have also been busy creating curriculum for Ka Pō Mahina, altering our existing curriculum for nā keiki, to be better able to share traditional manaʻo with families and people of all ages. We are excited to share this introductory workshop in October 2017 as our Makahiki gift to our community.


We are humbled that we can continue to be not just engaged, but effectively and culturally empowering in our community. We look forward to more partnerships and increased impact in 2018.

Mahalo nui,

Tina Cabiles-Carden
