The oldest Hawaiian community-based grassroots organization was founded in 1918 by Prince Jonah Kūhiō. There are 58 Hawaiian Civic Clubs located throughout Hawai‘i and on the mainland. These clubs advocate for the culture, health, economic development, social welfare and nationhood of Native Hawaiians.
One goal of the Hawaiian Civic Club, ‘Ahahui Kīwila Hawai‘i O Mo‘ikeha, is to educate the public about Prince Kūhiō’s life and legacy, that of being a voice for his people.
Please join us as the Hawaiian Civic Club, through narrative, music and pictures, presents the story of Kaua‘i’s beloved Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana‘ole.
This free event is made possible by the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville as a part of the Dotty Nakea Memorial Speaker Program and the Hawaiian Civic Club.
All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.
