Our name kanu o ka ‘āina literally means “plants of the land” and figuratively refers to “natives of the land from generations back.” This name reflects the commitment of our school, our staff, our students and their families to perpetuate Hawaiʻi’s native language, culture and traditions, as mandated by Article X of Hawaiʻi’s State Constitution. It also demonstrates our efforts to assure that future generations have the choice to remain natives of this land.
While our Hawaiian culture is woven throughout our program, here are some details and examples of student activities in our program.
- Lei Piko
- ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i
