ʻOhana Support

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

QLCC Workshop

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 in 2017.  

Wawa's Legacy

In 2017, we advised and supported an ʻohana that successfully protected their ancestral land through a conservation purchase.

ʻĀpana ʻOhana

In 2020, we co-hosted an online workshop series with nonprofit Huliauapaʻa and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs that reached over 200 community members. This workshop provided resources for families and others seeking to protect kuleana and ʻohana heir properties.

ʻOhana ʻĀina Workshop

In January 2023, we hosted an in-person workshop at Liliʻuokalani Trust for 65 community members that provided resources for protecting ancestral ʻāina.
