About Us

The Hoʻopae Pono Peace Project seeks to build strength in the Hawaiian community, and in its connections with others, through culture-based support for the prevention and resolution of family and community issues, support for youth as nonviolent warriors, and promotion of nonviolent solution-building and activism.

We are an affiliate of the Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples

The project grew out of the NHBA/NHLC Peacemaking Project, which ran for four years on Oʻahu.

Board of Directors   see more here!

We also have many great volunteers, collaborators & allies, who help us in many different ways.  Mahalo!!!

Our Focus: 
Cultural peace-building (including family land situations and community organizational problem-solving); youth empowerment; peacemaker networking, visioning, and education; Ea (sovereignty); & strengthening non-violent activism.

Our Mission:
To perpetuate traditional Hawaiian culture-based peace methods; to increase the
availaility and usage of hoʻoponopono and other indigenous culture-based peacemaking
throughout Hawaiʻi and the world; and to promote nonviolent, aloha-based methods of
problem-solving (including nonviolent resistance, when necessary) in community and
international settings, as a means for building pono throughout the world.


We are proud to be funded by all of you!!!
Most of Hoʻopae Pono's work is voluntary and unpaid (with the exception of a small amount that Laulani makes for filing stuff).  However, our work would not be possible without much awesome support, for which we are grateful!
