Kahua Na`au A`o ma Pu`uhonua o Honaunau NHP, INC. is all grown now. It has weathered the 30 years of building the foundation in order to teach others. Kahua Na`au A`o founded and hosted many signature events at Pu`uhonua o Honaunau including the annual Establishment Day Cultural Festival since 1976 whose 3 day attendance is a modest 8,000 visitors. Kahua Na`au A`o has impacted and uplifted the lives of many especially our Hawaiian people, like myself to attain the `Ike insight into my family history. I learned to search my Na`au my "gut" to look for the A`o the enlightenment. Kahua Na`au A`o has provided an alahele a pathway to discover, get to know and collaborate with other Hui, organizations who think in like mind. Although miles away on islands or continents we share a global sense of compassion for our own, each other and human kind. Kahua Na`au A`o has now come of age and is sanctioning teachers who have completed the course of study so that the continuity of the A`o, the learning moves forward. I am so thankful to my family especially my mom, known to many as Aunty Grace who named our organization and to Jerry Y. Shimoda retired Superintendent of Pu`uhonua o Honaunau NHP who practiced the Hawaiian tradition of Ohana and with this vision mentored Kahua Na`au A`o to stare adversity in the face and look for the oppotunities in the light. Kahua Na`au A`o sheds its skin regularly so that the dawning of the new skins enable the organization to makaukau, be well prepared for the future.
