In July 2018, 15 staff from the Ho’okua’āina ʻohana will embark upon a journey to gain ancestoral knowledge and make connections with our brothers and sisters in Rurutu, a small island in French Polynesia. For 2 weeks we will be immersed with a people who still live and practice the way of their ancestors uninterrupted for over 2000 years. Their kalo traditions are almost identical to Hawaii. We go there in search of lost ancient knowledge and important cultural connections vital to us as we search the past to find answers for our future. We humbly ask that you support us on this journey.
