Hui Nohona

The Hui Nohona culture team at Partners in Development Foundation strives to bring Native Hawaiian meaning and practice to our everyday lives.

Their work ranges widely from sessions with our Ka Paʻalana program families teaching cooking and fishing practices, to traveling out to our Neighbor Islands for place-based learning and instruction. Our Hui Nohona team works diligently with all programs of our organization to develop and implement comprehensive Native Hawaiian education, grounded in our values and mission.
