In collaboration with Nā Leo Pūlama o Maui, Inc – the parent and community support group for Pūnana Leo o Maui – and with support from the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority and the Kimokeo Foundation, ʻŌiwi TV was honored to collaborate with the Project KULEANA team to produce Project KULEANA Maui. Coinciding with the celebration of Pūnana Leo o Maui’s 30th anniversary, this is the 6th Project KULEANA production and features keiki, graduates, limahana, and makua Pūnana Leo recorded live at various locations on Maui; all great examples of the many who daily ʻauamo their kuleana to ensure our ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi lives on.
About Project Kuleana
Project KULEANA was created by three Native Hawaiian men who share the perspective that KULEANA is what makes music Hawaiian. A KULEANA to the ‘āina (land) and our strong ancestral connection to it. Project KULEANA aspires to increase the innate value of Hawaiian music and the performance of it to inspire people to reflect on one’s own KULEANA. Project KULEANA seeks to encourage people to re-discover, re-connect and re-instill what Hawaiian music and performers of Hawaiian music represent. With support from the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, ʻŌiwi TV was honored to collaborate with the Project Kuleana Producers and Makauila, Inc. to produce Project Kuleana 2.
