2017 Club Report


The Ko`olauloa Hawaiian Civic Club was founded on June 14, 1924 by William Isaac Kanakanui, a highly respected leader of the Hau`ula community, and was chartered on April 16, 1966. Our mission is to preserve and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture, its music, language and arts. We protect and steward sacred sites and places in our community while supporting our Native Hawaiian students in pursuing a higher education. Today, the KHCC is the second oldest club with in the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs organization and is a federally recognized non-profit community organization.


It is for the love of our culture that we have partnered with other organizations throughout the community on sharing and caring about our heritage. KHCC partners with HILT and Hui `o Hau`ula to malama Maunawila heiau in Hau`ula, and this year our Wahipana committee members presented at the He Manawa Whenua Indigenous Research conference in Aotearoa, New Zealand. They shared research on oral histories, mo`oku`auhau and links with Oceania.


We also took part in many events including the Prince Kuhio Ho`olaule`a and Ho`ike`ike at Kapi`olani Park and entered a decorated vehicle. We attended the Hawai`i Maoli Annual Fundraiser at Makapu`u and attended all of the O`ahu Council meetings. The Aloha Ko`olauloa, North Shore Ocean Fest, Mango Jam, Hau`ula Ho`olaule`a, and the Homeless Retreat at Hau`ula Beach Park are some of the events that our club members support to share and support our heritage.


The Ko`olauloa Hawaiian Civic Club would like to extend our gratitude and aloha to the Mainland Council and mahalo them for all the work in hosting this year’s convention in Seattle, Washington.
