KAHEA is a community-based organization working to improve the quality of life for Hawai`i's people and future generations through the revitalization and protection of Hawai`i's unique natural and cultural resources. We advocate for the proper stewardship of our resources and for social responsibility by promoting cultural understanding and environmental justice.
- We focus on issues that impact cultural rights and the 'āina (land).
- We are cultural activists and practitioners, including kuma hula (teachers of dance, language, chants, history, and healing), environmental activists and people concerned about social justice.
- We are on every island.
- We are 'ōpio (youth), mākua (adults) and kūpuna (elders)
Together, we envision a truly just and sustainable Hawai`i in a world where people, culture and native ecosystems survive and thrive.
