Hōkūpa‘a We provide cultural tours of Waikiki and Honolulu. Our events follow proper Hawaiian protocols.Our workshops integrate culture and business acumen.

Hōkūpa‘a is the North Star. It guided ancient Polynesians to our islands. Today, Hōkūpa‘a is your journey of experiences guided by Hawaiian cultural practitioners. We provide walking tours through Waikiki where we share the history and legends of Hawaii through stories, songs and chants. We help with your event planning by adding a cultural essence and sharing traditional Hawaiian protocols. We provide cultural training for businesses, both for selected groups and company-wide. We help educate high school and college students on Hawaiian values and traditional methods of leadership.
