Kūpa‘a – What it means
Steadfast, firm, constant, committed, immovable; loyal, faithful; determined; loyalty, allegiance, firmness.
Kūpa‘a means being steadfast and committed. The Kūpa‘a Kaua‘i logo reflects the people of Kaua‘i pulling together, committed to a common goal. It represents our resilience, strength and aloha spirit. Throughout this unprecedented time, our Kauai community has continued to rise above and support each other in so many inspiring ways. Kūpa‘a Kaua‘i is a symbol by which anyone on Kauai can show their commitment to working together as one, as we work collaboratively to rebuild, restart and re-energize the future of this place we call home.
We encourage everyone to follow @KupaaKauai on Instagram and Facebook. We will be sharing resources, telling inspirational stories and highlighting ways that our island has pulled together in our recovery.

Aloha For Kauai – Shop Local Campaign
One specific way we can come together as a community is to show our support for our local businesses as they begin re-opening. This recommendation came from the work of the Kauai Economic Recovery Business sector team. The County of Kauai has partnered with industry leaders, including the Kauai Chamber of Commerce, the Shops at Kukui Ula, Kauai Made and Jaxon Communications to develop this shop local campaign, Aloha for Kauai. Aloha for Kauai is an initiative intended to support and promote Kauai’s restaurants and retailers.
We encourage everyone to follow @AlohaforKauai on Instagram and Facebook. While we understand that not everyone can spend money at our local restaurants and businesses at this time, following along and sharing these stories is also a great way to show your support. With your help, together we can move Kauai Forward.
