Here's what our mentors have to say:
"Mana Maoli needs to be supported in every which way. I keep wanting to come back and nurture the seeds that were planted.
Thanks Keola and all from MMC who made that experience possible, and to all who continue to perpetuate the Hawaiian culture through education and music with the Mana Maoli and Mana Mele programs. Mahalo nui mai ku'u pu'uwai."
— Anuhea, Mana Maoli Collective Artist
"Teaching them and caring for them is the most important thing that we can do as adults."
— John Cruz, Board Chair & Mana Maoli Collective Artist
“To be able to jam out these songs, and be able to give back to the schools and the keiki and be able to hopefully inspire these keiki to live out their dreams - for me this is so rewarding on so many levels."
— Jack Johnson, Mana Maoli Collective Artist
"Its by our example, that we’re really going to instill in them what we are trying to teach.”
— Irie Love, Board Chair & Mana Maoli Collective Artist
