Uncle John, you are a fantastic community resource and male role model for our Native Hawaiians. I am very proud of you for sharing the wonderful game and history of Konane. Your entrepreneurship skills are a delight to see. I love to see Native Hawaiians doing things like these verses other cultures who try to do Hawaiian things, which in my personal opinion is exploitation. Native Hawaiians have great things and sharing is wonderful. It is so important to pass on our culture to the ‘opio. I really like how you made an ancient game useful and important to modern day Native Hawaiians (bridging the gap). Thank you very much and keep up the good work.  
The konane workshop was an enriching and bonding experience for our families. I walked away with a new appreciation for Konane. Konane is more than a game; it's a way of life. Konane is fun and engaging, but more importantly, it challenges our students to think critically and problem solve

Mahalo John for organizing the Konane workshop for our RYLA Camp in Ha’ena! We appreciated learning the history behind this traditional Hawaiian game from a kanaka maoli, and our students had a lot of fun playing on the boards you created! I don’t even think they realized they were learning strategy, patience and relationships! Mahalo for sharing your knowledge and aloha!
