E Holomoana Käkou I Mua” – Nutes tai dathl ~ To Journey Forward Together

This looks to be a very interesting opportunity in Alaska to find out more about civic groups in Hawai’i and their work on grassroots organization and governance, tradition, sustainability and development, education, and fun. The convention is for registered participants. However, there is a public open house on the evening of the 16th. I put a listing of the workshops and speakers at the bottom in order to give you an idea of the interests of the organization.


October 14 – 19, 2007
Hilton Anchorage – Alaska Ballroom
“E Holomoana Käkou I Mua” – Nutes tai dathl ~ To Journey Forward Together

The Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs is a confederation of fifty-two (52) Hawaiian Civic Clubs located throughout the State of Hawai`i and in the States of Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, Utah, Virginia and Washington State.

We are the oldest community based grass roots Hawaiian organization in Hawai`i, having been formed in 1918 by the then non-voting Delegate to the United States Congress Prince Jonah Kühiö Kalaniana`ole. We are the only Hawaiian organization to have branch clubs outside the State of Hawai`i.

Our objectives are to take an active interest in the civic, economic, health and social welfare of our community; to support programs of benefit to the people of Hawaiian ancestry; to provide a forum for full discussion of all matters of public interest; to honor, fulfill, protect, preserve and cherish all sources, customs, rights and records of the Native Hawaiian ancient traditions, nä `oli a me nä mele, cemetery areas and the historic sites of Native Hawaiians.
