When & Where
Hawaii Forgiveness Project
Hawai’i is a multicultural society whose people deeply respect the values of the first people who settled our islands, long ago.
A life of forgiveness is demonstrated clearly by traditional Hawaiian culture, through the spirit of Aloha (welcome, love) and the practice of Ho`oponopono (balance, understanding).
We support forgiveness in all its religious, artistic, personal, judicial, educational, social and political forms.
Hawai'i is an example for the world, both small in size and large in significance, of what is true and possible.
