Navigating Humanity Towards a Sustainable Future

Educating Hawai‘i-based people and visitors on principles of respect for the land, environmental sustainability, and societal balance, combining traditional Hawaiian and contemporary understandings and practices.

Our Vision

We envision a future when all people residing in or working in the Hawaiian islands will conduct themselves with respect and care for the delicate balance between humanity and the natural world, working together to produce ‘āina momona–abundance.
