The Kama’aina Club of Orange County (KCOC) was established in 1969 with the sole purpose of bringing Hawaiians together. By doing so, they would be able to share the Aloha spirit and pride of the islands.

Many Hawaiians moved to California to create a better life and provide for their families. However, it was not without cost. The Aloha spirit soon became lost in the hustle and bustle of this new city life.

With the creation of the KCOC, many families and friends are now able to come together to share and maintain the Aloha spirit from our culture and heritage.

As a club, we enjoy the comradery of being Hawaiian within the many diverse cultures that make up Hawai’i.

Today, Kama’aina Club of Orange County represents not only our past, but also the present along with the future of our children and their children to come. It is our responsibility to teach them the meanings of our heritage. By teaching our children we can ensure our
heritage for generations to come.
