KĪPAPA Educator Resources:

Bilingual Resources Covering
Hawaii's History


In response to a need in our community for access to historical Hawaiian knowledge, Awaiaulu has assembled primary source documents, articles from the newspapers, and produced material to understand the detail of key events and key figures in Hawaiian history.

Awaiaulu have amassed nearly 1,000 documents in Hawaiian and English as part of the collection and created bi-lingual curriculum for grade bands K-3, 4-6, 7-8 & 9-12. You will find mele, books, indexes in English & Hawaiian, supplemental reading material and games.

He mea maikaʻi loa ka ʻimi ana i nā mea i hāʻule a nalowale o nā mea kahiko o Hawaiʻi nei; a ke ʻimi nei kākou e loaʻa mai me ka pololei, a e lilo ia i waiwai na nā hanauna ma hope aku nei i ka wā pauʻole.

It is worthwhile to seek that which has fallen away or disappeared regarding ancient things of this land, Hawaiʻi; we are striving to find what is accurate, for it will be of great value to future generations for all time."
