2017 Club Report

 

The KVK-Chicago now based out of the newly formed Aloha Center Chicago (ACC) has as a result, been recognized on a much larger scale by the City of Chicago’s Alderman of the 47th & 35th Wards, Chicago’s City Council of 50 members, Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Chicago’s Special Events Office. In addition, strong bridges have been built and solidified between the work of KVK-Chicago through the Aloha Center Chicago and the Native American community. Recently described by the Executive Director of the American Indian Center (AIC) as their ‘Sister Center’ to AIC.  

Collaborative efforts between KVK-Chicago and the City of Chicago, Hawai`i Maoli including Hawai`i-based Universities, Chicago's Field Museum's Native Hawaiian Collection, Knight of Columbus, American Indian Center, University of Illinois-Chicago Native American Student Support Center has supported our Club initiatives of health and economic disparities, access to Native Hawaiian digital databases, and education of legislative processes such as the co-authoring of the Indigenous Peoples Day Resolution between Native American community members and KVK-Chicago.  

Programs were promoted online throughout the City’s website, Twitter, Facebook event page, and published in their program booklet that was circulated throughout the City of Chicago at no cost to us, and engage 8500 artists and arts administrators
