PEACEFUL IS MĀKUA, OUR ʻĀINA
Robi Kahakalau, along with Kimié and Paula Fuga, sings her signature song “Mākua” to close out an amazing and mana-filled day at Mākua on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018. Non-profits Nā Kama Kai, Sustainable Coastlines and Protectors of Paradise, along with Mālama Mākua, opened the day at 9 am with a clean-up of Mākua Beach with an estimated 800-plus folks fanning out along the mile-long beach. A Celebration of 15 Years of Peace in Mākua (no military live-fire training) began under the big tent set up in the Kulaʻilaʻi parking lot next to Mākua Beach at noon with incredible speakers and mele. A star-studded, three-plus hour concert then followed at 3 pm, featuring Nā Hoku Hanohano award winners Kimié, Mike Love, Paula Fuga and Sistah Robi, among others.
