About me

Aloha! ʻO au ʻo Kumu Lōkahi Antonio and I am the kumu for the 9th grade Hawaiian Culture class here at Kamehameha Schools Maui.

My teaching career began at the Māhele Haʻawina Hawaiʻi – Hawaiian Studies Department at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo in 1991.  While there I developed curriculum at the Hale Kuamoʻo for the Kula Kaiapuni o Hawaiʻi.  It was also there on Hawaiʻi that my high school teaching career began at Ke Kula ʻo Nāwahīokalaniʻōpuʻu, a Hawaiian language immersion school in the district of Puna.

In 1998 my ʻohana and I moved to Maui nei and I was a Hawaiian Literature and World History teacher for the Kula Kaiapuni o Maui at King Kekaulike High School.  I soon resumed my college teaching at the Maui Community College and also taught for Ka Haka ʻUla o Keʻelikōlani – The College for Hawaiian Studies at UH Hilo as an on-site teacher here on Maui at the UH Center.

In 2003 I joined the ʻohana here at the Kamehameha Schools Maui.

While it is important for our students to know who we were as Hawaiians mai ka pō mai – from time immemorial, it is equally important for them to know who we are i kēia au hou – in this modern era, and more so i ka wā e hiki mai ana – who we could be in times to come.
