The Hanalei River Heritage Foundation (HRHF) partners with the community to increase the use of Hawaiian language, literature, traditional practices as the foundation of stewardship on the island of Kauaʻi. We use this same foundation to develop educational materials & teach environmental stewardship and to address the impacts of climate change and other threats to our island environment. In doing so, perpetuate the use of traditional practices and knowledge to improve the overall management of natural and cultural resources in a modern day context.
