Kalo patch

Kahuaola is part of our Mālama ʻĀina project which continues to bring together our students, puna (elders), our partners and the community in focusing on caring for the land through the planting of taro and other native Hawaiian plants.
Kahuaola means "foundation for life." Keeping this at the forefront, this project will allow our students to have a closer relationship with mother earth and to learn the kuleana (responsibility) of taking care of the earth so that future generations will enjoy the vast resources it has to offer.

 "We must nurture the ʻōlelo(language) of our people. We must teach the spirit and the heart of the language and the culture and we must teach the true spirit of our language which is based on "Aloha kekahi i kekahi" (love one another).
