Our waters hold us. They comfort in time of need, celebration and release.


ʻUpena are used by lawaiʻa to catch protein from the sea.  What is caught in an ʻupena feeds to nourish and share.  Besides catching, nets allow the pass through or release. This page is dedicated to the narrative of our journey.  It houses employee reflections of our learning success, areas of growth and need.  ʻUpena is a space for expressions of hōʻike, exhibitions of our indigenous work.  Learn about the lessons we have learned and accept our invitation to share yours.
