The ocean is a very healing place which also fosters courage, connection to elemental forces, community, and a host of other things. Makali`i has always been know to have a large women crew and Makalii has spurred the growth of Kanehunamoku, our double hulled canoe, which we use to teach and pass on the knowledge shared with us by our kupuna.

About ʻAha Wahine

On February 4, 2012, more than 300 Native Hawaiian women gathered to inspire, inquire, invest, and invigorate each other with ʻike, aloha, and kuleana. Presentations by highly regarded experts covered topics that concerned our ancestral gods, our modern day leaders, health issues that are unique to us, and economic issues that affect us. This gathering was an opportunity to garner ideas for the larger ʻAha Wahine that will happen in August 2011.

More information about the upcoming August conference can be found at www.ahawahine.org.
