Maui Nui Makai Network

The Maui Nui Community Managed Makai Area Learning Network (dba Maui Nui Makai Network) was established in September of 2012 (and formally incorporated in April 2014) by six communities who are actively involved in managing our makai resources as the initial founding members:

  • Mo‘omomi on Moloka‘i
  • Maunalei on Lana‘i
  • Polanui Hiu in West Maui
  • Wailuku/Kahului in Central Maui
  • Mu‘olea in East Maui
  • Kīpahulu in East Maui

The Maui Nui Makai Network seeks to protect and restore the healthy coastal and marine ecosystems that the people of Maui Nui depend on. Our purpose is to share and learn from our diverse experiences, lessons, and best practices to help member sites to mālama specific makai areas.
