MCAPP is led by Molokai's strengths: aloha, resourcefulness, and connections to land, place, family, and spirituality.
Molokai, sometimes called “the last Hawaiian island,” is rural, predominantly Hawaiian (majority) and Filipino, with a storied history of land-based activism. Strengths include resourcefulness, aloha, family bonds, connection to place, and spiritual grounding. The community tends to be interconnected and interdependent within the island, while self-reliant and independent from those outside the island. Every Molokai school receives Title 1 education support. The community takes pride in living from the land through farming, fishing and hunting.
