MAC teams up with the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation!

The Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation (NHLC) is the only nonprofit, public interest law firm working almost exclusively in the area of Native Hawaiian rights law.

We have put together a special 16 track collection of beautiful Hawaiian music, and all proceeds will go to the NHLC. Download the entire playlist for $12, or individual songs for 99 cents each.

Preview the songs below or on our website, and download for a good cause!

Thanks to support from donors like you, the NHLC is able to provide legal assistance to individuals, families, and communities that seek to protect their traditional cultural practices and maintain their ancestral ties to their lands and natural resources.
