Kipahulu 'Ohana

The Kipahulu ‘Ohana is dedicated to the cultural sustainability of the Kipahulu ‘Ahupua‘a on Maui, Hawai‘i through educational programs which incorporate local, national and international partnerships and projects. We envision families working in harmony together to preserve and enhance the traditional cultural practices of the Hawaiian people. To this end, we conduct cultural demonstrations, restoration projects, self-sufficiency programs, biological diversity projects and other related endeavors.

--Kipahulu ‘Ohana Mission Statement, Adopted October 27, 1996

The Kipahulu ‘Ohana works to:

  • Restore the Kipahulu ‘Ahupua‘a as a model of a living, working, self-sustaining Native Hawaiian community circa 1778-1848, including the construction and maintenance of traditional Native Hawaiian agricultural and aquacultural features.
  • Assist in the elimination of alien flora and the reintroduction of native, endemic and Polynesian species.
  • Maintain, increase, and perpetuate a mutually beneficial formal relationship with the National Park Service, State of Hawai‘i, Maui County, Sovereign and private entities.
