"Moving from HCBE --> HCBP"

We openly invite ALL to join the movement to perpetuate our most valued and treasured resources, the cultural ‘ike (knowledge) and PRACTICES of our kūpuna (Native Hawaiian ancestors).

Summit Guiding Question

Our summit intends to address the following question:

"Amidst the uncertainty and dynamic challenges of today’s modern world, how might one engage in Hawaiian Culture-Based Practices to build connections with others, improve total well-being, and perpetuate Hawaiian cultural traditions for future generations?"

2022 Virtual Summit & Workshops Rationale:

The unique kalo ʻApuwai captures the purest waters, which fall from the heavens, and collects them for significant cultural uses. Similarly, the 2022 Ka Waiwai No Nā Kūpuna Virtual Summit and Workshops, hopes to serve as a vessel to perpetuate our most treasured resources, the cultural ike (knowledge) and practices of our kūpuna (Native Hawaiian ancestors).

Last year, over 2,000 people, from around the world, gathered with 70 Hawaiian cultural practitioners/specialists in the 2021 virtual Ka Waiwai No Nā Kūpuna Conference for All to engage in Hawaiian Culture-based Education (HCBE). No matter where they were on their path of cultural learning, participants answered the kāhea (the call) to freely learn about and connect with our ʻike kūpuna.

Hawaiian Culture-Based Practices For All

We openly invite ALL to join the 2022 virtual HCBP movement and cultivate a relationship with the practices of our kūpuna to build resiliency, foster a sense of personal balance, and support total well-being.

Click on the video below to hear our invitation to Hiʻuwai with Kanani Aton.

Join us for our World Wide Hiʻuwai: Opening February 27th

We invite you to take part in "Hiʻuwai", a water cleansing ceremony, we hope you will perform during the week of February 27th - March 3rd. If you can't do it during this time, we encourage you to engage in the practice when the time is right for you. The hiʻuwai ceremony is an opportunity to release all that needs to be let go and start anew. Please prepare yourself for Summit day by practicing Hiʻuwai in your own space.

After watching the full length Hiʻuwai video on our website here, choose a place to perform the ceremony and reflect on your experience. If you choose to share a photograph and caption from where you performed the ceremony, please upload it to our Hiʻuwai Experience Padlet which is NOW OPEN and will be open through April 2. Let's connect with one another and prepare to release all that does not serve us!
