Perpetuating kuleana to place through protection of cultural landscapes and family lands

Who We Are

Kīpuka Kuleana is a Hawai‘i 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to perpetuating kuleana, ahupua‘a-based natural resource management and connection to place through protection of cultural landscapes and family lands. Kīpuka Kuleana was founded in 2017 on the island of Kaua‘i by Dr. Mehana Blaich Vaughan, Dominique Leu Cordy, Tina Aiu and Jennifer Luck, four women rooted on the island of Kauaʻi.

Our Mission

​Perpetuating kuleana, ahupuaʻa based natural resource management and connection to place through the protection of cultural landscapes and family lands.

Our Vision

Long time families continue to live in, take care of and share the practices and history of every ahupuaʻa on Kauaʻi.

““We feel, we have kuleana, responsibility for the land, for the people.
Thatʻs what this is all about””
