Our new website provides a clear message of who we are and how we will continue the legacy of our founder, Uncle Hank Ohumukini. The mission of the Ho’ike Hawai’i organization is to bring people of all cultures and ethnicity together to share in the Spirit of Aloha by holding Hawaiian Hula Competitions, Exhibitions and Concerts annually. In addition, Cultural Workshops are held annually and offered to all who have an interest in Polynesia, and to educate those of Polynesian ancestry and their children in an effort to perpetuate the culture.
