KĪPAPA EDUCATOR RESOURCES Integrating Hawaiian Knowledge:

Lā Kūʻokoʻa, November 28, 1843 (Independence Day)
Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea, July 31, 1843 (Restoration Day)


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 these two events in Hawaiian history.

We have created two strands of curriculum for grade bands K-3, 4-6, 7-8 & 9-12 for a total of two for each grade band per topic. In addition to mele, supplemental reading material and some games to engage youth in these topics. All the materials are presented in Hawaiian and English.

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."
