About the Resource Center

Ka waihona o ka naʻauao.  The mission of the Laka me Lono Resource Center is to:

  1. Support the Hawaiʻinuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge and its four departments (Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies, Kawaihuelani Center for Hawaiian Language, Ka Papa Loʻi o Kānewai, and Native Hawaiian Student Services)
  2. Promote academic excellence
  3. Perpetuate Hawaiian ancestral wisdom
  4. Emphasize Native Hawaiian perspectives in all areas of study

Our resources present the interplay of history, culture and politics as well as the interconnectedness of all knowledge, contemporary and ancestral, from Kanaka Maoli perspectives so that students will understand Kanaka Maoli experiences in the context of all indigenous peoples.
