KŪPONO: Arts for Social Justice

The PA‘I Foundation has served as a fiscal sponsor for numerous organizations and collaboration projects that seek for Native Hawaiian social justice, indigenous rights, and the protection of Native Hawaiian natural and cultural resources.

Locally we served as fiscal sponsor for the Hale Kua‘i Trademark Study, a needs assessment survey of native Hawaiian cultural practitioners and artists on the issues of trademark and copyright.

We continue to serve as fiscal sponsor for the Hawaii Pono‘i Coalition and the ‘Īlio‘ulaokalani Coalition for community organizing activities around native rights and the protection of the natural and cultural resources of Hawai‘i.

PA‘I served as a fiscal sponsor for Ke Kukui Foundation in Vancouver, Washington and Vicky Holt Takamine serves on their advisory board and assisted them in forming their non-profit organization.
