PAʻI PROGRAMS

PAʻI Foundation provides programming that serves our mission of preserving and perpetuating Native Hawaiian arts and culture for future generation while remembering the Native Hawaiian values of akahai (kindness, grace), lokahi (unity, unbroken), ʻoluʻolu (agreeable, gentle), haʻahaʻa (humility, empty), and ahonui (patience, waiting for the moment).
