Raiatea Helm honored with “Fellowship in Music”

Raiatea Helm has been awarded the first ever Fellowship in Music honor by the Native Arts & Cultures Foundation! This honor acknowledges those who promote the revitalization, appreciation, and perpetuation of Native arts and cultures in all sectors of society through philanthropy and partnership.

Pictured: Raiatea visited Kailua Elementary (right) and Salt Lake Elementary (below) last month in to promote literacy and support their Ukulele Music Program Initiative and Fundraiser (which the Raiatea Helm Music Foundation sponsors.)

The NACF has recognized her body of work of traditional Hawaiian music as a cultural art form worthy of their support and acknowledgment!

Hear for yourself why Raiatea was chosen for this honor amongst an extremely competitive group of talented music artists from all over the country. Check out SEA OF LOVE!
