Ka Ho'ea Mai Ana: The Warriors' Home Arrival

FAIN: AV-265985-19

University of Hawaii (Honolulu, HI 96822-2247)
Aris Banaag (Project Director: November 2018 to October 2022)

Preparatory training sessions and discussion groups that integrate veterans’ experiences into an ancient Native Hawaiian rite of passage, for Maui County veterans.

Ka Ho?ea Mai Ana, the warrior’s arrival home is a moment of joy and sorrow, relief and remorse with human responses that transcend time. Ka! Mauli! is an ancient Native Hawaiian practice to reintegrate male and female warriors consisting of: 1) The Rite of Ka Mauli—the choice to enter the military, 2) ?Uo and Malina Ke Kino—integration of strengths gained through service, and 3) ?Uo Ke Kino Wailua—making meaning of the experience. These core concepts will be brought to life through cultural demonstrations providing an empowering lens to explore expressive genres spanning U.S. conflicts. The program will include two large-scale discussions (75-100 participants), two 14-week small-group discussion sessions (20 participants), and a preparatory training for discussion leaders (5 peer and 5 community vet leaders). Results include: 1) increased awareness for 75-100 community members, 2) therapeutic experience for 20 small-group participants, and 3) 10 trained leaders to continue discussions.
