Ka Ipu Makani was incorporated in 2015, with a mission to foster an awareness of cultural and natural resource management and heritage preservation in Hawai'i, by encouraging community stewardship, practice, preservation, and restoration of cultural and historical sites, landscapes, and materials while promoting cultural and natural richness, diversity, arts, languages, sciences, history, and traditions of Molokai.
Though deeply rooted in tradition, we also promote the integration of contemporary sciences and technology to advance our island in a way the community sees fit. We depend on aloha, relationships, and partnerships to provide meaningful opportunities and experiences. Our vision has always been kūpuna driven and inspired, and we strive to uphold that covenant. Ola nā iwi, i nā iwi ola. The bones live, because of the bones that live. The traditions of our ancestors continue because of us.
