Hālau ‘Ike

Hālau ‘Ike is the main hub of activity at the Native Hawaiian Center. It provides numerous functions for Native Hawaiian as well as all other students at Honolulu Community which include:

·A fun hangout to just relax, eat and socialize.

·A place to study or receive tutoring from one of our peer mentors.

·A meeting spot for clubs.

·A venue for special events such as the ‘Imi Na‘auao lecture series, cultural workshops, career workshops, guest speakers or pa‘ina.

During the Fall semester of 2008, the Native Hawaiian Center invited Clark Little to be the artist in residence of Hālau ‘Ike. He was able to display his beautiful and quite unique photography all around the hālau, creating a wonderful environment for all.
