Lā Ho’iho’i Ea Honolulu

Lā Ho’iho’i Ea Honolulu‘s mission is to uphold a “big tent” for the Hawaiian independence movement. They provide safe and inclusive spaces to celebrate, learn about, and strengthen the political autonomy of Hawai’i’s people, past, present, and future. Through the perpetuation of Lā Ho’iho’i Ea (Hawaiian sovereignty restoration day), they bring people together in educational, cultural, and community networking events that center social justice and open dialogue. Activating and nourishing communities around multi-faceted practices of EA (life, breath, rising, sovereignty) throughout the month of July, their annual month-long series includes film, poetry, community dialogues, and ceremony lifting up Hawaiian Independence.
