Who We Are

Kuleana means responsibility.


We are lineal descendants of Kohala who uplift our community enabling our families to


ʻĀkuleana - delegate power back to community, to the people, returning our kamaʻāīna (children of the land) to the ʻāina of their kūpuna.


ʻAuamo Kuleana - work together as families, villages and a community to understand our responsibilities to our places and people of Kohala.


Protect Pololū Project comes from this understanding of kuleana. It is an approved community project under the fiscal sponsorship of North Kohala Community Resource Center, a 501c-3 non profit organization in North Kohala. This project is comprised of lineal descendants, cultural practitioners and the extended Kohala community. Our efforts are focused on protecting Pololu through education and stewardship of the land.
