Celebrating the 181st La Hoʻi Hoʻi Ea!

2024 Honorees

Each year we honor people in our community who have made it their lives work to stand firm for Ea. This year we honor Mālama Mākua, and the courage and spirit of two pillars behind the organization, Sparky Rodrigues and late cultural practitioner Leandra Wai.

Since 1996 they have fought to preserve and reclaim Mākua Valley as a piko of peace and abundnace. Tying into our 2024 theme of Demilitarization, we celebrate their legacy and ongoing efforts to mālama Mākua.

Join us in honoring their hard work and vision!
