Welcome to Kama’aina Magazine, a full-color print publication featuring stories of aloha from Hawai`i and the Mainland. We are committed to perpetuating the culture we grew up with on our island home, and strive to help Hawaiian-owned and islander-supported businesses and entertainers get the exposure they deserve, in hope that they will find success doing what they love.
From local celebrity feature stories and business owner spotlights, to our holoholo and keiki pages, Kama`aina Magazine has a little something for everyone. Mahalo for stopping by! We're glad you're here.
Our Fall 2013 cover features Lanai, Adam & Shawn, Team Aloha Plate from the Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race. They are the first Hawaiian team to be on the show since its start, four seasons ago, and are representing Hawai`i in a positive way -- sharing aloha “one plate at a time”. Team Aloha Plate talked to us about their journey of a lifetime, and the many adventures of spreading the aloha spirit by way of a food truck, and some `ono food.
