Kokua … Aloha In Action


I love the Hawaiian word ALOHA, especially after learning about  the deeper meaning of Aloha.  Next to aloha, there is another Hawaiian word that I truly like, and that is KOKUA.  To me, Kokua means  “aloha in action” . And here’s what the dictionary says about it:


Help, aid, assistance, relief, assistant, associate, deputy,helper; co-operation; to help, assist, support, accommodate.

I have been very busy lately (actually not just lately but almost always).  There are many events, projects and activities on Maui that I want to write about to show my KOKUA.  The thing is I can’t find the time to focus and write a full post for each of them (this busy working mama’s plate is full).

However, these events, projects and activities are all with a good cause  and I will feel bad if I neglect to share them with you. So I am just going to lump them all together here on this post and hope that you will be able to attend and support at least one, better yet all these.

The First Paia North Shore Ukulele Festival – Free Entrance!

 Enjoy an afternoon of Award Winning Ukulele Music, Live on Paia’s Oceanfront Stage, directly behind Johnny B’s Burgers at 65 Hana Hwy. (Paia). The Festival is set for Saturday November 24th, 2012 from noon to 5pm. One of the great part? This is a FREE EVENT! Free Hawaiian Ukulele Music from Hawaii’s most talented ukulele artists. Free Ukulele Workshops and Craft Booths.

Aside from the Ukulele Music, you can also take a test ride on a Segway, from Segway of Maui.  There are also food booths – and as of ths posting I am yet to confirm  food will be available. I am hoping there are some Food Trucks but not sure yet. I will let you now later.  Overall, this is  a great time for the entire Ohana!!

The artist line up is fabulous! Listen to the sounds of Paula Fuga, Richard Ho’opi’i, CJ Helekahi, Wilson Kanaka’ole, Benny Uyetake, Deason Kaohelo, The Hula Honeys, Robbie Ray Lopaka, The Zenshin Daiko Taiko Drummers and The Kalama School Ukulele Band.


P.S. I will be updating this post as I get more info.  In the meantime, share this post with your family and friends. This is a fun local gathering and event. Let’s support!
