Board Member


Leialohaokeānuenue Kaʻula is an inspiring educator, a motivating facilitator, and a community leader.  Her passion to advocate for Native Hawaiians and Indigenous communities of the Pasifika is represented in the multitudes of educational programs, and organizations she has founded and is an active participant. Kumu Lei is the Hula Instructor and Founder of Ka Lei Haliʻa O Ka Lokelani (a local hula school in Oregon), a Advisory Director and the Education Committee Chairperson of Ka ʻAha Lāhui O ʻOlekona Hawaiian Civic Club of Oregon and SW Washington, and the Corresponding Secretary of Na Lei Makalapua (Mainland Council of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Club). 


Haʻahaʻa (humility), ʻohana (family), and aloha (love) are values that were instilled in her at a very young age. Kumu Lei was born on the Island of O’ahu to a family of cultural historians and entertainers. Growing up in a family with deep roots in the Hawaiian culture meant she embraced her home and used that guidance to pave the journey she lives everyday.
