Aloha ‘Oe Bruce Keppeler, Hawaii Maoli Founder

It is with a heavy heart that we bid aloha to one of the founders of Hawai‘i Maoli, Uncle Bruss Keppler.  In the words of Hawai‘i Maoli’s Board President Rick Fernandez, “He was a great Hawaiian who did great things for his people including forming Hawaii Maoli.”  Services are pending and will be held at St. Andrew’s Priory.

Our aloha goes out to Uncle Bruss’ ‘ohana – his voice and his mana‘o will be missed by all of us.

I am Hāloa

A feature length documentary about the staple food of Hawaii; Kalo (taro) and it’s connection to Hawai”s culture.

I am Hāloa is a feature length documentary film about Hawaiian identity and culture, as understood through the story of Hāloa, the first Hawaiian person in the Hawaiian Creation Story known as the Kumulipo, and the traditional Hawaiian staple food commonly known as poi. This film tells the story of three Kamehameha high school seniors who are embarking on a journey of self-discovery as they travel throughout the Hawaiian Islands to gain a better understanding of their culture and to re-establish a link to the first Hawaiian, Hāloa. For 90 days they will commit to cultivating, harvesting and eating kalo (taro) for three meals a day. During these 90 days the girls will travel from Oʻahu to Kauaʻi, Maui, Molokaʻi, Moku o Keawe, Kahoʻolawe, and Lānaʻi to learn from some of the most inspirational leaders in Hawaiʻi about the past, the present and the future role that Hāloa could play in guiding the people of Hawaiʻi. I am Hāloa will explore the inherent values and conflicts that come with incorporating Hāloa into modern lifestyles and also the amazingly delicious new ways that this ancient, sacred food is revolutionizing cuisine in Hawaiʻi. These three young ladies will work with some of the top chefs in Hawaiʻi like Lee Anne Wong, Ed Kenney, Mark Noguchi and Andrew Le, to see how Hāloa is being incorporated into the menus of the most delicious restaurants in Hawaii.

Aloha ‘oe Senator Daniel Inouye

Daniel-Inouye---Web-Ready

Hawai‘i Maoli was honored to be with Senator Daniel Inouye in August as we presented him with the Ka Mana O Ke Kanaka award.  In the words of our Board President, Ramsay Taum:

We honor the life and service of a man who has served the State of Hawai‘i and its people in the United States Congress since 1959.  His courage on the battlefield may have earned him the Medal of Honor, but it is his “Hawaiian at heart” persistence, commitment and dedication to improving the living conditions of Kanaka Maoli and native peoples in America that has earned Senator Daniel K. Inouye our admiration, respect and gratitude.

I first met Senator Inouye in 1978 in Nashville, Tennessee at a Bureau of Indian Affairs gathering of tribal leaders from across the continent. I was there as the student-teen representative of a seven-person delegation from Hawaii supporting the Senator’s effort to seek inclusion for Native Hawaiians in the Native American CETA program.  Not only did he succeed in that effort, but in the thirty plus years since, Senator Inouye has championed the causes and rights of Native Hawaiians and other first nations people across the country year in and year out. His accomplishments are unparalleled. Mahalo piha e Senator Inouye.  Rest well.  You will be truly missed.  Aloha!
