Mahina Paishon-Duarte (Waiwai Collective CEO & Co-Founder)

“Ka Waiwai’s value to our people can never be truly be measured as it connects people to space while binding relationships, cultivating thought, inspiring the next generation and elevating our connections through aloha.”

Keola Chan (Corporate Member, Non-Profit Executive & Cultural Healer)

“Ka waiwai o ka pilina aloha o nā kānaka a me ka ‘āina. A lot of people who connect with Ka Waiwai share similar foundational values, they care about ‘āina and culture and they’re looking to empower our community and our lāhui.”

Noelle Campbell (Co-work Member & Entrepreneur)

“When I take off my slippers at the door, I’m reminded that I’m a guest in this space, in this community, and on this ʻāina. This feeling of being a guest — and being my best self, connecting without judgment, expressing the most aloha — is what I get out of Ka Waiwai.”
