Lanai Community Health Center

Lanai Community Health Center will bring together two of our most vulnerable populations, our kupuna and keiki, by introducing "Pineapple Days Talk Story." We will facilitate a monthly talk story gathering that will provide an opportunity for an exchange of the rich history of Lanai -- the old plantation days to the transition to the tourism industry -- from the kupuna to keiki. We will provide activities for kupuna and keiki to work together to explore these topics and learn from each other. The aim of this program is to bring our community together and to strengthen inter-generational interaction, cohesiveness, and unity. The program is intended to foster in keiki and other attendees a deeper connection to the island and to provide a profound understanding of the unique and diverse history of the island. This program will also highlight the uniqueness of our island in today’s changing world.
