KuPono - Windward CC's Hawaiian Club

 
 

Our club is founded on the following traditional Hawaiian values:

  • Pa`ahana - diligence
  • Lokahi - harmony
  • Ha`aha`a - humility
  • `Ohana - family
  • Ho`omana - spirituality
  • Huikala - forgiveness
  • Laulima - cooperation
  • Hanohano - dignity
  • `Olu`olu - well mannered
  • Na`auao - intelligence
  • Lokomaika`i - generosity
  • Koa - courage
  • Kokua - assistance
  • and Aloha - breath of life

Through our daily expression of these values, we hope to symbolically, reconnect with the po`e kahiko.

 “Ma ka hana ka `ike” - Pukui (in the task is the knowledge and understanding), tells us that we learn best, by doing (synergistically). In gifting our school and communities with certain yearly activities (listed below), we provide our members with opportunities to develop pride and leadership skills applicable throughout their personal and collegiate lives. For Hawaiians, sharing is not only a nice thing to do, it’s a cultural imperative.  E hele mai kakou!

Service-Learning and Community Service volunteer projects may include the construction and maintenance of lo`i kalo at Hale `Iolani mauka and Hale `Imiloa – WCC campus, Po`ailani DD Treatment Program – Kane`ohe, and the Women’s Community Correctional Center - Kailua. All activities listed below are eligible for compensation hours.

Tuesday lunch hour meetings TBA.
