Project Hawaii
In the Hawaiian language, aloha means “sharing the breath of life.” At ALOHA, we aim to do this by making health simple, fun, and accessible. Every day, we aspire to live by embracing this idea. Hawaiian culture, lifestyle, and people are truly inspiring to us, and that’s why we’re honored to partner with organizations and individuals that celebrate the spirit of “aloha” every day.
Maui Cultural Lands
ALOHA is honored to support the
Hawaiian based non-profit, Maui Cultural
Lands, a grassroots land trust organization
whose mission is to stabilize, protect, and
restore Hawaiian cultural resources.
Hawaiian culture is intimately connected to the native flora of the islands, therefore one primary goal of MCL is to reforest Honokowai Valley and the Kaanapali area with native and endemic Hawaiian plant species.
Important cultural information is contained within the ruins of Honokowai Valley. MCL aims to stabilize this archaeological site for future generations.
Honokowai Valley provides an ideal setting for educational opportunities for the Hawaiian community, general public and visitors.
