Honoring Mauiʻs Kupuna

Our Kupuna Appreciation event began in December 2020 as an alternative to the much anticipated Kupuna Dinner. The annual dinner event showered 400 of Mauiʻs kupuna with holiday gifts, festive entertainment, and a delicious holiday meal provided by Maui Hotel & Lodging Association members. When the world shut down and we could not gather or connect with loved ones, it was critical that MHLA found a way to continue honoring the Kupuna of Maui.

With the tremendous support of our members and the amazing partnership with Meals on Wheels and the County of Maui, we found a way to proceed with our holiday tradition. MHLAʻs Kupuna Appreciation was developed, delivering hot holiday meals and gifts to the doorsteps of over 600 of Mauiʻs truly homebound senior citizens. Since then, the event has grown into a biannual event now taking place in both the Spring and Winter seasons.

We are excited to host the 2023 Spring Nā Kupuna Appreciation on April 21, 2023. Join us as we pay tribute to our island Kupuna in this heartwarming event!

Mahalo to all who make this event possible!
