This year has been a busy one for us. Our club is now managing the Hawaiian Cultural Center in Midvale, UT. We have many activities and initiatives in the works, the first of which is the 'Ohana Day Care program, aimed at not only ensuring that we are self-sustaining but more importantly, that we’re able to positively impact our children starting at that young age.
We’ve had workshops, which included learning about how to make your own Mahiole. In March, we hosted a Kuhio Presentation: Living His Legacy: Honoring Prince Kuhio in 2013 and Beyond. We held our Chili Cookoff on 8/24, as well as, our KOAHINE addressing Native Hawaiian women and Breast Cancer on 8/30. In addition, we hosted the Talanoa Series monthly. It’s always rewarding for us to be actively engaged with our Hawaiian community.
Our Living Traditions festival was a success as always, with many young volunteers making it not just profitable, but fun!
We’re humbled that we can continue to be not just engaged, but effectively and culturally empowering in our community.
