We've been working hard to get holiday cards out the door and in to your mailboxes. This year we featured a collage of some of the work over the last year, view this blog to see the collage in full color.

Welina mai,
This year for the cover of our makahiki card we wanted to highlight some of the partners we are so blessed to work with all throughout the year.  From the rich community in Wai`anae to the spiritual base that is Mauna Kea, we are so grateful for the many connections we’ve made over the years.

This year has been one marked with great success and great challenge, not only for KAHEA, but the world at large. There have been people’s revolutions across the world in Libya, Egypt, and now the United States -- speaking truth to power, demanding more compassionate government. At the same time we’re hearing stories of economic depravity and continued threats to our precious and sacred natural resources--it is all connected.

At KAHEA, it has been a year of big wins--we won at the Land Use Commission, saving 96 acres of Wai`anae farmland from industrialization (for now).  We successfully completed our first contested case hearing at DLNR -- a huge undertaking -- to uphold the conservation laws that are in place to protect our sacred places (like Mauna Kea) from inappropriate development.

It has been a year of ingenuity, forging new relationships, and hard work. For all the time that goes into carrying out this important mission, there is just as much time dedicated to finding money to fund it. To you, our supporters, we are grateful for your support--for it is you who make this work, and truly this way of life, possible.

Have a blessed and rejuvenating season,
