ʻAha Kāne 2012 addresses the issues of Native Hawaiian male leadership by focusing on the cultural history and role of Native Hawaiian men in the past, present, and future. This 3-day conference held at the Windward Community College campus in June 2012 included cultural workshops on lomilomi, ʻai pono, laʻau lapaʻau, lua, hula, ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, and mahiʻai. By actively engaging participants in these traditional practices, ʻAha Kāne seeks to raise awareness and empower Native Hawaiian men to fulfill the roles and responsibilities amongst ourselves, our ʻohana, and our lāhui. This video highlights some of the many conference workshops.
