Education and Research
We enhance connections to ʻāina through education
Lead field trips with local schools, an annual summer program for keiki (children) and ʻōpio (youth), college courses, workshops, and trainings for community learners of all ages.
Center stories, place names, land-use history, policy, and ecology of particular ʻāina while building capacity to care for these places across generations.
We assist families, community groups, landowners, and government agencies with cultural, historic, and archival lands research to aid in the care and protection of ʻāina today
Specialize in māhele and kuleana records, translation, place names, archival maps, historic images, land-use plans, and analysis to support policy reforms.
Train people to conduct needed archival ʻāina research on their own.
Build a community archive of Kauaʻi lands, cultural practices, and ʻike (knowledge) to guide future restoration, caretaking, education, and governance.
