From the first Hawaiian who bravely stood up on a surfboard and gave birth to a worldwide phenomenon, to Hawaiian kapa makers who crafted the finest bark cloth known on this planet—Hawaiian culture has always evolved to new heights through innovation. In the 1700s and 1800s, when new items came to Hawaiʻi, kūpuna adapted these to suit our needs—from slack key guitar music to the beautiful flowing dresses of pāʻū riders. How do we continue this tradition of cultural evolution, vibrancy, and excellence in a modern, urban context? How would you describe an urban Hawaiian space?

Together, we have an opportunity to build something truly unique at Kaka'ako Makai. Join the conversation and share your mana'o. Video by 4 Miles LLC

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs hosted community meetings throughout Hawai‘i from February 17ty until March 3rd, 2015. OHA sought input from community stakeholders as it charts a conceptual master plan for its properties in Kaka‘ako Makai.

People who did not make the meetings in person participated in a virtual input session. This round of community input currently ended at the end of May. Stay tuned for the next round of community sessions. Mahalo!
