Aloha and Welcome to Kai Palaoa

We are excited to welcome the time of Kanaloa into our physical and spiritual spaces of consciousness as we celebrate the return of our akua Kanaloa to Hawaiʻi. Under less litigious circumstances, Kai Palaoa would be inviting everyone to the 5th Annual Aloha Kanaloa Cultural Festival, instead we are calling on our supporters to aid us in a time of urgent need.
