Ha`a Nā Kai `Ewalu
By Kumu Keli’i Tau’a
Ha`a Nā Kai `Ewalu was especially composed for the club by Kumu Keli’i Tau’a. It includes the name of the eight channels between the Hawaiian Islands and the channel leading to Tahiti. We are very proud of our haka. Imua Nā Kai `Ewalu!
Serving Our Members and the Community
Nā Kai `Ewalu continuously serves its members and the community. We have hosted the students at Summer Pals and Kama`aina Kids. Narcotics Anonymous used our hale for daily meetings and several hula halau made our hale their home too. Nā Kai `Ewalu is the official host of Kamehameha School Maui and Baldwin High School’s MIL paddling teams.
Nā Kai `Ewalu is also part of the Adopt a Highway Campaign. We care for a two mile stretch of Hana Hwy which includes the intersection of Haleakala Hwy.
We have been involved in replanting koa and a`ali`i seedlings in Kahikinui and Ulupalakua. Our club has also done many Thanksgiving and Christmas Meals for the homeless.
