Abraham Kahikina Akaka was an American clergyman. For the better part of three decades, Rev. Akaka was Kahu (shepherd) of Kawaiahaʻo Church in Honolulu, Hawaii. His mother was of pure Hawaiian ancestry, and his father was of Hawaiian-Chinese ancestry. He delivered his messages in both the Hawaiian and English languages.
He retired from Kawaiahaʻo Church in 1984, and began to channel his energies to The Reverend Abraham Kahu Akaka Ministries Foundation, established to focus on:
Kōkua – Direct Help to Meet Need
Kōkua (help) to Churches
Scholarships and help to Schools and Individuals requesting assistance in their educational goals.
Peace on Earth – to Organizations for Worldwide Humanitarian Work
Never having fully retired, his last activity before his death was to conduct a service at Hawaiian Memorial Park Cemetery in Kaneohe. Collapsing shortly thereafter, he was in intensive care before dying on September 10, 1997 of a dissecting aortic aneurysm. (bio by: Papawraith)
