Ke Ali'i Bernice Pauahi Paki Hawaiian Civic Club 2013
by Amy Kamakeeaina-Bird
This year we have come away with an increased ability to nurture and help out in our club and community. Receiving aid has deepened our appreciation to strive and utilize our resources well and to maximize our club projects in the following areas:
Organic Gardening: (Land & Water) - We were able to subsidize approximately 6+ families in a Farm & Greenhouse Tour Orientation Program.
John Kaiahua set up work sessions and a workshop to help our club and community understand how to grow our plants organically and applying techniques from our Hawaiian Culture. We will eventually become self sufficient in that we plan to carve a Papala’au (Platter to pound poi). This is an on- your-own project. The wood is soaking and will be prepared for carving very soon. We have been working w/ Nick Nicholls on other wood carving projects for a solid year now.
Emergency Preparedness: (Health & Wellness) – Our holdings on this subject is a very extensive collection. Although, we concentrated on Independence Missouri, in general, the Greater Kansas City Missouri area is our focus point. We also covered Blue Springs, Raytown, Lee’s Summit, Oak Grove, Grain Valley, and North Kansas City. (Binder Display). [96 hr Emerg Prep Kit, 72 hr Kit, Hygiene Kit, Small Sewing Kit & etc…] We have also collected numerous items to contribute to our growing club library. We have professionals and numerous club members in our group who are well versed in health care.
Hawaiian Culture & History including Education: A Ho’oponopono Work Session was given by Ilene Kimsey. As she is currently our newest member and she has encouraged members to further our knowledge in how to become pono. It has given us great inner peace. Aunty Dee gave the history of hula along with a beautiful displayed Hawaiian Quilt. Amy furthered our knowledge on how the Peacock Feather Lei Hat Bands are made. In all, we had a terrific time learning from one another and look forward to share our mana’o in our community.
Aloha Pumehana, Amy.
