Winter 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.

In September, my grandma, who was my last living  grandparent, passed away. She was 94 years old and one of the sweetest people I knew. And as I sat in a plane with my husband and daughters somewhere above San Francisco, en route to Maui, I put the final touches on her eulogy. She had passed away a few days before and I was asked to write it, as I had done for my grandpa a few years prior. I was honored to take on the responsibility once again, sharing a small part of her life with those in attendance at her funeral, but it was also one of the hardest things I’ve ever written. Although I had been working on it for a few days, the tears began to flow once again. But, being above the clouds with a beautiful sunset outside the window, I felt a little closer to my grandma. And I knew that when I was done writing, it was exactly the way it was meant to be.

In our Winter 2020 issue, we celebrate our `ohana and the impact that they have in each of our lives. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today, had it not been for their love and support, and I know that so many others feel the same way. Our Winter 2020 cover story features the beautiful and talented Kimie Miner, talking story about her musical journey and new path of motherhood. We also include stories on Malcolm Ahlo, Chad and Brad Kalilimoku, Elena Ledoux, and Tehani  Shigematsu – all of whom have inspired us, and whose families have guided them along the way.  Thank you for being here. I hope you enjoy the issue! 

With Aloha,

Jill Munemitsu
