Moku‘āina A Wakinekona
Hawaiian Civic Club of Washington State
“A awe o lehulehu lei ulana pū ia ho‘onui ikaika nui alaila ʻekahi awe ia lei.”
Aloha mai kākou!
We promote, preserve and perpetuate Native Hawaiian culture, values and traditions.
Moku'āina A Wakinekona Hawaiian Civic Club members, families, and friends are invited to gather in solidarity for a symbolic ceremony of support for the community of Lahaina, Maui.
Hele Mai Kākou!
Let us come together to give our aloha in remembrance of all those who perished in the Lahaina Fires of August 2023. We stand in solidarity with our ‘OHANA throughout the islands and continental U.S. that are still affected by this tragedy.
Together with Master of Ceremony, Braddah Gomes, we will: sing; pray; listen to the chants of the Kumu Hula; view a pre-recorded video update; write personal notes to individuals in Lahaina; and, float rose petals from our shore to theirs.
2023 Holiday Gathering
