Mapping Ancestral Knowledge

Strengthening community commitment to care for aina – begins by building relationship with aina through practice, listening, and mo’olelo (story sharing). This workshop will share the collaborative work between Nohopapa Hawaii & Kamehameha Schools Community Engagement & Resources – ‘Ewa Region –
• to map culturally significant sites,
• to outline community stewardship efforts tied to these natural and cultural resources,
• and build an accessible collection of the mo’olelo (stories) that lives in these places.
Our work seeks to deepen foundations for connecting communities and aina cultivators with the stories and land that guides their perspectives and approaches to education, well-being, and aina stewardship.
