Spring 2020

Welcome to Kama’aina Magazine, a full-color print publication featuring stories of aloha from the Las Vegas Valley since 2012. We are committed to perpetuating the culture we grew up with on our island home, and we strive to help Hawaiian-owned and islander-supported businesses and community members get the exposure they deserve, in hope that they will find success doing what they love. As we weather this uncertain time in our lives, one thing is certain:  that the spirit of aloha is alive and well in our communities and across the country. We hope that you will hold on to that, and that you and yours are staying healthy during this difficult time.  I hope you will enjoy this digital version of our latest issue, Movers & Makers.  


As a child, I loved making collages out of words and photos I would cut out of magazines. (Oh, the irony.) I remember going to Longs Drugs and buying Bop and Teen magazines, and when I was done reading them and pulling the posters out to hang on my wall, I would cut out photos and words that I thought were cool and inspiring. Back then, I’d find words like, “awesome” or “rad”, and pictures of the newest L.A. Gear shoe or Care Bear. I would glue them onto a poster board and hang it up on my wall. The simple act of expressing myself by doing something creative brought me so much joy, and it makes me even happier today, knowing that my daughters also enjoy creating things and doing arts and crafts. 


Our Spring 2020 issue highlights a number of Movers & Makers in our community – companies and people who are creating a life for themselves through creativity. The issue features Dorinda Burnet, President of the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club and Owner of Keola Kreations; Chantell Rawlins-Fernandez of My 3 B’s; Christian Albano of Natural HI Honey; Mary “Pumpkin” Keohokapu-Holbron and her wife Sherrie Holbron of Pumpkinz Dee-Litez; and Nita Pilago of Wahine Toa. Their stories are inspiring, and they remind us that no matter where you came from or what path you’re on, with enough passion and hard work, anything is possible. May you be inspired too. Thank you for being here. 


Stay Safe,

Jill Munemitsu
