We provide direct, tailored support to families
working to keep ancestral lands.
We connect families with resources, including legal, hoʻoponopono (counseling/mediation), estate planning, and genealogical services.
We help ʻohana to raise funds, establish family land trusts and keep their ʻohana lands in perpetuity wherever possible.
Where families have lost lands, we help them to negotiate access and stewardship agreements so they can continue to care for ʻohana ʻāina.
We work with ʻohana to craft respectful solutions tailored to particular ʻāina and circumstances, while also connecting area ʻohana to one another.
How we support ʻohana
Projects and Resources
With support from Native Voices Rising, our founders brought together 20 community members to discuss the protection of kuleana and ʻohana lands in 2016. The manaʻo from this workshop planted the seeds for the formal establishment of Kīpuka Kuleana from 2017-2018.
In 2017, we advised and supported an ʻohana that successfully protected their ancestral land through a conservation purchase.
