She is a mahi'ai (farmer) for Malu 'Āina Center for Nonviolent Education and Action and a kia'i loko (fishpond guardian) for Kaloko Fishpond. Her work extends to the peaks of Mauna a Wākea, to the plains of Pōhakuloa into the deepest depths of the ocean to the realm of Kanaloa. She is an advocate for peace and justice fostering nonviolent interaction between people, land, water, ocean and air.

Hula Halau O Kukui Aloha O Kohala

Hula Halau O Kukui Aloha O Kohala

Under the direction of Kohala raised Kumu Leia Lawrence, Hula Hālau o Kukui Aloha o Kohala has been blessed to actively share the love and light of hula within their local community and beyond since their founding in 2013, including three previous years at the Kohala 'Āina Festival.
With a focus on paying homage to the ʻāina (land) that sustains us, in honor of our kupuna (ancestors) who came before us and the generations to come after, Hula Hālau o Kukui Aloha o Kohala's mission is to perpetuate the precious indigenous culture of Hawai'i by honoring and caring for its sacred places through the storytelling of hula and chant and by living in close connection with the land.
