Support Lahaina’s Hawaiian Language Immersion Program

August 29, 2019
Lahaina News

The Lahainaluna High School Class of 2020 will make history next year, as graduating seniors will be the first group to advance K-12 through Lahaina's Hawaiian Language Immersion Program.

Starting as early as preschool at Punana Leo o Lahaina at Waiola Church, students are taught in a Hawaiian language only setting.

This remarkable program perpetuates the Hawaiian language, fosters a new generation of students fluent in the language and educates the keiki in Hawaiian culture and values.

Its mission is: "E ho'oulu i ke kaia'olelo Hawai'i no ko Hawai'i nei i mau aku 'o Hawai'i he 'aina Aloha" - to drive and inspire change to ensure a living Hawaiian language in Hawaii and beyond.

Last year, Fleetwood's on Front St. held a Lahaina Strong Benefit Concert to support the many people impacted by the terrifying brush fire on Aug. 24.

The 2019 event on Saturday, Aug. 31, at 8 p.m. will support the immersion program.

All proceeds will be donated to Punana Leo o Lahaina

to help purchase necessary tools for keiki in the classroom.

The benefit will feature live music by I-Drive, Soul Easy and other local Maui musicians, raffle tickets for great prizes and drink specials. Admission is $10 at the door. For information, call 669-MICK or visit

Through Punana Leo o Lahaina, "E Ola Ka 'Olelo Hawai'i" (the Hawaiian language shall live). Attend and support this outstanding Lahaina program.
