Enriching our understanding: Learning with Oʻahu ʻĀina Inventory

June 4, 2024

Educators, employees and kaiāulu can take a remarkable journey—a virtual exploration of Oʻahu’s moku. These webinars promise to be more than just presentations; they are gateways to our island’s rich cultural tapestry. Let’s delve into the past, celebrate the present and envision the future.

The O’ahu ‘Āina Inventory is an innovative tool that combines a wealth of knowledge, including historical research, ethnographic studies, wahi kūpuna (ancestral places) data and current stewardship initiatives. By attending these presentations, you will gain invaluable insights into the land that sustains us and learn how to integrate this knowledge into your educational programs, organizational planning, and even within your own family. This precious resource was completed in collaboration with Nohopapa Hawaiʻi, a cultural resource management organization.

KS community strategist Nalani Kealaiki says: “The Oʻahu ʻĀina Inventory isn’t just a compilation of data; it’s a catalyst for transformative education. We recognize that our learners thrive when they connect with their surroundings. By delving into the rich landscapes of each moku, we empower our students to become informed stewards of our island. This resource opens doors to meaningful learning experiences and a deeper appreciation for our culture and environment.”
