Future Ancestors

ʻEwa Beach, Oʻahu

Summer 2022

Grades 6-8

Program Details:

Know your piko (hoʻomau), find your passion (hoʻomoʻo), and live your purpose (poʻokela). This program builds Future Ancestors by focusing on inspiring, empowering, and activating students to master traditional practices and contemporary technologies to serve their communities.

The program engages haumāna from Hawaiian focused Charter Schools (Ka Waihona o Ka Na’auao) in a predominantly Native Hawaiian region (Wai’anae/Nānākuli). With the goal of developing connection to their community through social entrepreneurism, this form of leadership training grows ‘ōiwi leaders from the ground up by empowering them to see the genius in themselves and their community.

Through games, ‘ike Hawaiʻi, ‘ōlelo Hawaiʻi, presentations & hands-on activities students will learn about navigation, moʻolelo, different kinds of Indigenous technology, people & worlds they inhabit. The last day of each session will be a community hōʻike day.
