PAʻI IS ON THE MOVE! WHAT’S NEW?
PAʻI MAMo (Maoli Arts Movement)
MAMo (an acronym originally representing ‘Maoli Arts Month’, but re-branded in 2015 to represent an expanded ‘Maoli Arts Movement’) was established by PAʻI in 2005 with a mission to create opportunities for Native Hawaiian artists to showcase, display and market their art. The PAʻI MAMo program currently supports over 50 Native Hawaiian artists.
The paifoundation.org website is currently undergoing a re-design. The new website will be integrated with our secure customer relationship management system to allow you upgraded access to PAʻI programs, memberships, directories, and resources.
The current “PAʻI LOGIN” button on the bottom right of this page allows you to login to your personal PAʻI Portal page and manage your own account, renew donations & memberships, register easily for upcoming classes/workshops, and change your personal password.PAʻI Arts & Culture Center (PACC) Memberships
