Hoakalei Cultural Foundation

Aloha Mai and Welcome

Wai Kai is committed to good stewardship of the land as well as the memories of those who came before. The real-world manifestation of this commitment is the Hoakalei Cultural Foundation, which was formed in the 1990s when Kupuna Arline Wainaha Kuuleialoha Nakihei Brede Eaton (lovingly known as Aunty Arline), raised in nearby Puuloa, along with her elder lifelong friend, Sister Thelma G. Parrish, began documenting the history of Honouliuli. Along with Aunty Mary Kaipo Malama Serrao, these valuable kupuna (elders) established the utmost reverence for people and place that the Foundation carries on today—ensuring respect and aloha for the aina (land) and kai (sea) of Honouliuli.
