MAMo: Maoli Arts Movement


MAMo: Maoli Arts Movement

In 2005, the PA‘I Foundation, with partner Bishop Museum, successfully organized and implemented a month-long celebration to highlight native Hawaiian arts, artists and cultural practitioners called Maoli Arts Month (MAMo). PAʻI re-branded MAMo in 2015 to “Maoli Arts Movement.” MAMo programming is now a year long celebration of native Hawaiian art and culture.
