In remembering the early years of the Molokai Hoe along with the Aloha Festivals Hoolaulea at Hale o Lono, this was Molokai's version of kulaia. The festivities lasted an entire weekend and the spirit of aloha radiated to all; including our Molokai community, paddlers, visitors and spectators from abroad. In recent years, we have seen history repeated, where the idea of kulaia was forgotten, as the canoe race continued without the festival. Wanting to revive the spirit of the festivals here on Molokai, a grassroots community group came together and formed the Molokai Canoe Festivals whose members share the vision of bringing back the festivals to our community and sharing the true Molokai aloha and hospitality to our visiting brothers and sisters of the paddling ohana & visitors. This practice of kulaia is an important cultural tradition in celebration of our Alii and Kupuna. KULAIA gives us an opportunity to enlighten, embrace and share the spirit of Aloha, Molokai style.

The Molokai Holokai Hoolaulea (Festival) seeks to function as an opportunity for professional SUP/Paddle racers to experience a race which is fun and challenging, whilst also being a community event that invites (amateur) locals to participate. It aims to encourage racers to interact with our community, providing a true insight into Molokai living, whilst giving Molokai residents an opportunity to interact with professional racers. Molokai hosts numerous professional races, but more often than not the community is not encouraged to participate in such events. We intend to remain true to Molokai ethos, spread its Aloha to visitors, and stimulate our youths to seek the possibilities which often appear out of financial and geographic reach. At its core is the intent of nourishing the body, mind and spirit.
