Ho‘okupu (offerings) are traditional in Hawaiian culture. They’re used to mark memorable events, both large and small, and express the spirit of gratitude. The Living Hawaiian Culture project is our ho‘okupu to the Hawaiian kupuna (elders) – and also to you. Through this collection of humanities-themed lessons, historical imagery, and personal interviews, we invite you to experience the roots of native Hawaiian tradition and the creative Renaissance that has been reshaping life on these islands for the past 40 years.
We’re observers. We’re preservationists. We’re cultural conduits. Together we’ve dedicated our skills and experience in entertainment, education, and technology to achieve a long-term vision: To record and preserve Hawaiian history in first-person form, to make those perspectives accessible to the world at large, and to deeply engage the next generation of Hawaiians in embracing their unique heritage.
Stay in touch.
Watch us grow.
The Living Hawaiian Culture project is still in its infancy. In the coming months, we’ll entice you to dive even deeper by producing video about artists from a variety of genres, as well as humanities lessons designed to foster a deep connection to Hawaiian culture.
