To preserve and perpetuate Native Hawaiian culture by educating, engaging, and connecting with communities both near and far.
E Ala E Hawaiian Cultural Center (EHCC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Hawaiian cultural organization formed in Alexandria, Virginia, in December 2017 to preserve and perpetuate the vibrancy of the Native Hawaiian people and culture. The organization was founded with a shared vision and common values to create an inclusive community for people from all backgrounds to share the aloha spirit with others.
In the first three years of operation, cultural courses, workshops, seminars, events, and activities in the National Capital Region to include hula (dance), 'ōlelo (language), oli (chant), cooking classes, Hawaiian kākau (tattoo), and Hawaiian fashion were delivered. As a result, EHCC exceeded the early expectations for what the organization would accomplish. Our strategic plan expands on the activities performed to date and frames and implements the next steps toward achieving the broader mission and vision.
