It is important to show the utmost respect to our Kupuna. They are the roots of our culture and we are where we are today because of them. Our Kupuna have done so much for we the younger generations. By showing them your respect you will show them that you care.
Just by visiting and interacting with a kupuna can make their day! By volunteering some time at a care home, like Lunalilo, it can have such a positive impact on the kupuna. Delivering their meals, singing or performing for them, or simply interacting are great ways to help out.
Listen and Learn
Take the time to listen and learn from your kupuna. Our Kupuna know so many more things than we do. By sitting, listening, and learning from them you will gain such a large wealth of knowledge about our Hawaiian Culture. The Kupuna also really enjoying sharing their information and skill with the younger generations.
