WHAT WE DO

Halau Hale Kuhi Kuhi Program – we are dedicated to the ancient art and practice of Native Hawaiian Indigenous architecture. The Halau members span across the islands and participate in hale building events on Oahu, Hawaii Island, Maui, Kauai, and Molokai. Halau Hale Kuhi Kuhi was formally organized in 2013 and adopted into Holani Hana as a program in 2014.

Reforestation Program – we use primarily invasive species to build hale as a way to rid the forest of invasive trees. Since we’re already in the forest we figured we might as well plant a native tree every time we cut an invasive tree. By doing this we hope to fill our forest with native trees, which will help with the native animal life, native shrubs, refilling the aquifer, and of course the perpetuation of more native hale. We will need to write grants for this program and hire staff.

WHAT WE DO

Our Hale Building Program offers a unique opportunity to bring your community together to work, learn and practice an ancient art!  Volunteers, families and friends will work side by side with Kumu Palani, Master Hale Builder and his team of Alaka’i to learn about this ancient practice and art of Hale Building.
