Holani Hana Inc. 501c-3 was inspired by its founders Coila Eade, Francis & Esmenia Sinenci. It’s main goals are focused on cultural preservation in the areas of Hawaiian Architecture – Hale building, Aipono- Poi, Pae Pae – Rock wall and stone masonry, Native Plants – reforestation of Native Hawaiian species. By partnering with communities, families, schools and organizations, we help facilitate native Hawaiian practices for the benefit of creating a new generation of cultural practitioners.
Halau Hale Kuhi Kuhi is dedicated to the ancient art and practice of Native Hawaiian Indigenous architechture. Our halau has 41 members consisting of 8 alaka’i (leaders) 32 haumana (students) and one Master Hale Builder, Kumu Francis Sinenci. This is a statewide program with hale built on Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Hawaii, and Kauai. Halau members span across the islands and participate in hale building events throughout the islands. Halau Hale Kuhi Kuhi was formally adopted into Holani Hana Inc. as a core program in 2014.
Kupuna science is a program offered for the community of Hana specifically to foster support for the unique knowledge of the Hana Kupuna (elders) and create an avenue for them to share their knowledge with the newer generations. This program is in collaboration with Hana High and Elementary, Ala Kukui, and Ma Ka Hana Ka Ike. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
