Aloha to CONIFA’s newest member – Hawai‘i!

Hawai‘i is an archipelago made up of eight major islands located within the Polynesian region of Oceania.

Established as a constitutional monarchy in 1840, the Hawaiian Kingdom became the first non-Western country to achieve full recognition as an independent state and member of the family of nations.

Hui Kanaka Pōwāwae (Hawaiian Football Federation) is the first national organization to govern associated football in all its forms within the Hawaiian Islands; and is also responsible for appointing the management of the men’s, women’s, and youth national football teams.

HFF joined CONIFA on November 28, 2019 – in celebration of Lā Kū‘oko‘a (Hawaiian Independence Day) – commemorating the formal recognition of the Hawaiian Kingdom by Great Britain, Ireland, and France on November 28, 1843.

This is the first international membership Hawai‘i has taken up since the Universal Postal Union in 1882 – and CONIFA welcomes the federation to the organisation.
