Transforming Hawaiʻi Nei

As we reflect on Hawai‘i’s history, we see moments that are ripe for hulihia, windows where deep transformation will occur. There is perhaps no better time than today, in the anticipated wake of COVID-19, to boldly transform Hawai’i.



Enjoy four days of cultural workshops, activities, breakout sessions, hot issue discussions, panels, debates, entertainment, and more!

The Annual Native Hawaiian Convention brings together Native Hawaiian and Pacific Island cultural practitioners, educators, healthcare and housing providers, business leaders, kupuna and future leaders from our next generation. It is the largest and most consequential convening on issues of importance to Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in Hawai‘i.


Our partners’ continued support for our annual convention has allowed CNHA to grow as an organization and expand our services to kōkua our community.
