Kauhale refers to a group of houses that are designed to support the household needs of an ‘ohana. Each hale has a unique purpose and function to meet the needs of the ‘ohana whose responsibilities are determined by the ‘āina landscape that hosts their kauhale. Unlike the homes we live in today, kauhale had multiple structures that were designed to facilitate and support relationships between ‘ohana members and their contributions to a thriving household.
Our kauhale is designed to create a network of support, or pilina, with our learners at the center. Kauhale thinking requires that we move mindful of our relationships in support of the well-being of our haumāna—culturally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually. It requires that we facilitate the growth and development of our students in ways that contribute to a strong sense of identity. Doing so ensures that our haumāna are Ma‘a i ka Hele i Kauhale—secure and confident to navigate new journeys toward successful futures as kanaka ‘ōiwi.
