Maoli Arts Movement 2017

In 2005, the PA‘I Foundation, with partner Bishop Museum, successfully organized and implemented a month-long celebration to highlight native Hawaiian arts, artists and cultural practitioners called Maoli Arts Month (MAMo). PAʻI re-branded MAMo in 2015 to “Maoli Arts Movement.” MAMo programming is centered in Honolulu during the months of May and June, and features popular exhibitions, arts markets, trunk shows and the extraordinary MAMo Wearable Art Show. MAMo programming has expanded to the entire year and its geographic reach has expanded to neighbor islands (Hawaiʻi Island, Kauaʻi, Maui), nationally (Alaska, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Texas) and internationally (Aotearoa, Austria, Germany, Japan).


Summit is Hawaii's global magazine of ideas, style and smart living. We're named for Queen Kapiolani's motto, "kulia i ka nuu," strive for the summit. Summit is available on fine newsstands throughout North America and the Asia-Pacific region.
