No matter where we reside, Native Hawaiians remain culturally connected to our Hawaii traditions, `ohana and `aina. The E Ala E Hawaiian Cultural Center (EHCC) was formed in 2017 to preserve and perpetuate Native Hawaiian culture by educating, engaging, and connecting with communities. E ala e (rise) is a call for our lahui of Native Hawaiian Communites to focus their shared passions and energies toward creating enduring memories for all. With that kahea, E Ala E has become a cultural focal point in the region, advancing its vision to be the first of a network of Hawaiian cultural center who share the vibrancy of the native people and cultivate the essence of aloha.
Like many words in the Hawaiian language, “Kupuna” has multiple meanings. Kupuna is often used to represent the ancestors and generations before us who, by their spiritual wisdom and presence, guide us through daily life. Kupuna also means the source or starting point of growth. In honor of Warren and his passion to continuously increase his impact on the Native Hawaiian community, we embrace both meanings.
The Nakupuna Companies specialize in providing innovative management consulting, IT solutions, facilities support, and environmental support services that help solve the government’s biggest challenges.
