The Maui Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce adopted the “Ko`i” as a symbol of commerce and work ethic.


Our mission as a Chamber is to promote and sustain our Hawaiian Culture, nurturing a strong community of Hawaiian Values and to enhance opportunities for success in business and education.

  • Improve the standing of Native Hawaiians in business by cooperation, coordination, and exchange of information.
  • Offer members benefits, information, and the opportunity to serve others.
  • Increase membership and involve them in the work of the chamber.
  • Focus on the benefits available to Native Hawaiians from business, education, government, community, culture and housing.
  • Provide leadership, counsel, and assistance in achieving these objectives.

live our lifestyle...follow our dreams and
just be Hawaiians
