A Hawaiian cultural program for youth fluent in Hawaiian language
If we don’t preserve our native language, how will our culture survive?
For the last five years, our Foundation’s focus has been on Kimokeo’s pure belief that in order for our Hawaiian culture to thrive and live on in perpetuity, the heart of our culture, the Hawaiian language, must be preserved and he knows that the way to preserve it is through our keiki (children). Therefore, over the years, we have partnered with Maui’s Hawaiian immersion schools to assist them with securing sites for their schools and providing them with educational support.
