The well-being of our lāhui is directly related to the health and condition of ‘āina. We steward ‘āina to be resilient so that it continues to provide us the physical, economic, educational, spiritual, and cultural connections that are inherent to Native Hawaiian identity in perpetuity.
Kamehameha Schools’ history is deeply rooted in Ke Ali‘i Pauahi’s land legacy:
“I give, devise and bequeath all of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate real and personal, … to erect and maintain in the Hawaiian Islands two schools, each for boarding and day scholars, one for boys and one for girls, to be known as, and called the Kamehameha Schools ...”
To realize her vision, KS stewards ‘Āina Pauahi for future generations.
With 364,000 acres of land, we manage ‘Āina Pauahi as a unified land portfolio — agriculture, conservation, commercial, residential and education.
‘Ōiwi education and leadership contributes toward a resilient economy, community and a thriving lāhui. To achieve meaningful change, KS’ commitment toward collective impact spans a wide range of areas.
