Hawaiian Cultural Influences in Education (HCIE)

Hawaiian Cultural Influences in Education (HCIE) is a collaborative study by Kamehameha Schools, the Department of Education, and Nā Lei Na‘auao –alliance of Hawaiian focused charter schools. HCIE examines relationships among culture-based educational strategies and socio-emotional development and educational outcomes of students.

What is Culture-Based Education?

Culture-based education is the grounding of instruction and student learning in the values, norms, knowledge, beliefs, practices, and language that are the foundation of a(n indigenous) culture.

At the state, national, and international levels, culture-based educational strategies are increasingly being seen as a promising means of addressing educational disparities between indigenous students and their peers.
