On the rugged Hana coast, along the far eastern shores of the Hawaiian island of Maui, Kahanu Garden grows in splendid isolation, nestled in the one of the largest native hala (Pandanus) forests in the Islands. Plant collections from the Pacific Islands are the focus here, particularly plants of value to the Hawaiian people as well as other cultures of Polynesia, Micronesia, and Melanesia. Kahanu Garden is situated in the storied land of Honoma’ele and home to Pi’ilanihale Heiau, a massive lava-rock structure that is believed to be the largest ancient man made structure in Polynesia. This awe-inspiring cultural site in the garden is registered as a National Historic Landmark.
Visitors to Kahanu Garden will learn about the cultural relationships between people and these remarkable plants that were transported around the Pacific on ancient voyaging canoes. Among the different ethnobotanical collections at Kahanu Garden is the world’s largest collection of breadfruit cultivars, which serves as a germplasm repository for this important South Pacific food crop.
Kahanu Garden and Preserve is part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 that has a mission to enrich life through discovery, scientific research, conservation, and education by perpetuating the survival of plants, ecosystems and cultural knowledge of tropical regions.
The purpose of Ke Ao Hāli’i is to protect and preserve the natural and cultural resources of the Hāna moku and the customary and traditional practices of Native Hawaiians of the region; to hold title to and own interests in real property or to hold easements; to preserve and manage the area’s natural, cultural, scenic, historic and marine resources for the benefit, education and enjoyment of our community and future generations.
We seek to acquire and steward important coastal properties in the Hana area, with a current focus on the Maka’alae and Mokae areas.

The Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park is daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Trails in the Kīpahulu District open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm include: Pīpīwai Trail and Kūloa Point Trail. We recommend starting the Pīpīwai Trail early and no later than 3:00 pm to ensure you are out of the park when the gate closes at 5:00 pm.
We, the Kipahulu ‘Ohana, are a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating residents and visitors of the “ways of old” through cultural demonstrations and hands-on activities. Using the wisdom and spiritual guidance of our kupuna (elders, learned teachers), we seek to re-establish a Hawaiian lifestyle in Kipahulu. By initiating sustainable projects, dividing the labor, and sharing the results we will preserve our culture.
Kipahulu Ohana operates Kapahu Living Farm, a traditional wetland taro farm located in Haleakala National Park.
Kolea cottage, a stand-alone timber-built octagonal house, dubbed the “round house” (permit t20120005) is located 3 miles from Hana Town on the lower slopes of the 10,000 foot Mount Haleakala and is surrounded by lawn carved out of the jungle in a secluded corner of our fruit farm. Our 11-acre estate is bursting with flowers, fruit trees and tropical plants of many sorts. Guests will enjoy the serenity of this setting and are welcomed to tour the farm and gardens, or delight in the dawn and dusk of the bird chorus while enjoying the modest ocean view from the lanai. Owners are on-site to provide any assistance needed.
The overarching vision of Ma Ka Hana Ka ‘Ike (MKHKI) is to increase Hāna’s self-sufficiency by providing meaningful learning opportunities that strengthen intergenerational relationships, environmental stewardship, cultural practices, and life skills, while meeting real and urgent community needs. Our approach can be summed up as returning youth to their rightful role as caretakers of their community.
MKHKI’s three main programs work in a holistic way—providing solutions to urgent issues while working to create systemic change that targets the root causes of these issues. Our Building Program installs handicap-access improvements for community members in need, while our Mahele Farm and Mālama Hāloa programs reintroduce healthy dietary and lifestyle choices, grounded in Hawaiian culture and connection to ‘āina (land). We provide services at no cost to low-income families, while our youth earn educational stipends and vocational skills training, changing the perpetuation of a low-income population in our isolated region. And we offer hands-on learning opportunities to youth who fail to thrive in the traditional academic setting, while providing our public school with an alternative educational approach that really works.

You’ll absolutely be delighted when learning to make a lei the Hawaiian way. Exploring the various types of ti-leaf, you will learn the art of ti-leaf lei making. This lei will stay fresh with little preservation techniques, allowing you to proudly wear your handmade creation. Over time, the lei will dry and its color will fade, but it will never lose the significance and beauty of our experience together.
“Haku,” the people’s crown, normally used to honor someone special during an occasion. The haku lei is an assortment of vibrant colors with breathtaking patterns of flowers and greenery. Poerava Ori Nui ensures the freshest natural resources for you to sew into your personalized haku for a lush tropical crown.
Before we start strumming away, we’ll go over basic hand positions necessary to play the ukulele properly. Once we’ve got that down, the first ukulele chord will be just as easy as the next. With a little practice changing finger patterns between chords, you will be singing along to your first song in no time. You’ll be excited to return home to show off all you’ve learned on your vacation to Maui.
Countless luau performances feature the art of hula and all its grace purely to entertain but overlook the true beauty that lay within. For every phrase, there’s a motion; for every motion tells a story. Poerava Ori Nui will bridge the gap between an angelic melody and elegant movement with understanding of the story behind the song. Step-by-step, you will learn the basic footwork and hand motions commonly used in hula. You’ll truly build a connection to this cultural memory in the ambiance of Aloha.
Who doesn’t want to sway as Tahitians do? The secrets we reveal to Tahiti’s hypnotizing hips will have you wanting more. It’s the perfect time for all women to truly explore their sassy but classy feminine side. Perhaps a light workout to end the day right. No matter the circumstance, every class will be a blast.
