The Hāna Limu Festival is sponsored by Na Mamo O Mū'olea, a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2006
Na Mamo O Mū'olea
To perpetuate traditional ‘ahupua‘a management of the Mū‘olea ‘ahupua‘a
and to restore and maintain Mū‘olea’s natural, cultural, scenic, historic and marine resources for the benefit, education and enjoyment of our community and future generations.
By caring for Mū‘olea, it can remain a place where families focus on traditional values, share knowledge, and mo‘olelo. By practicing cultural leadership and keeping cultural practices in use, Mū‘olea can serve as a model and voice for Hawaiians in the communities of Mū‘olea, Koali, Hāna, and others in East Maui and beyond. We take care to respect and listen to one another so that Mū‘olea can be cared for as a healthy gathering place that is a source of life and inspiration for our community.
Consistent with the purposes for which the land and shoreline were protected, NMOM seeks to protect resources as well as the traditional subsistence uses and those values and practices that help us to care for resources.
