Teaching resources
As a teacher, you know it can be tough to find quality classroom resources. Below are some top-notch sites to find reliable HCBE content and teaching materials, whether you’re looking for curated work or work created by fellow educators.

The Waihona is a virtual community space where kumu can share resources and ideas with each other. You’ll find a wide array of resources here that you can filter for your interests. Share something you developed to strengthen culture, ‘ōlelo, and ‘āina-based education across our pae ‘āina. Or check in to see if a Waihona resource might enhance your lessons. In the long-term, the goal is for all of us to build together a body of teaching resources so the next generations of kumu can start on a stronger foundation and elevate culture-based teaching to new levels of excellence.

Kealapono has compiled a variety of fun educational resources that celebrate Hawaiian history and tradition, while helping to strengthen the Native Hawaiian identity within keiki. These resources help students develop a sense of place and belonging, and also reinforce ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i. Kealapono created these resources to engage both students and their ‘ohana.

Ka‘wakīloumoku, a virtual Pacific Indigenous Institute, welcomes learners to explore a rich multimedia repository featuring global conversations with Pacific partners, and expressions of Hawaiian identity including essays, interviews, videos, and more. The Ka‘iwakīloumoku Hawaiian Cultural Center is a community gathering space dedicated to Nohona Hawai‘i, Hawaiian living and learning. Ka‘iwakīloumoku belongs to a Pacific network of indigenous partners who value ancestral knowledge, celebrate traditional wayfinding, and are committed to the restoration of our Pacific home—Moananuiākea.
