Local chapters and the wandering Moai
The mother chapter of the Order is the Kahiki chapter in Columbus, Ohio. As the local group began to expand beyond central Ohio, it was decided to establish additional chapters. There are currently nine active chapters in the United States and each is led by a local Tohunga.
Some members of the Fellowship do not live in a chapter territory. These Fellow Moai are called Tungane (meaning "brother," as in brother of all chapters). It is the duty of the Tungane to try to spread the Aloha Spirit and word of the FOM within their region in hopes of developing their own local chapter. In the absence of a chapter affiliation and Tohunga, Tungane honor the Matu'u.
