Education and Research
We enhance connections to ʻāina through education
We lead field trips with local schools, a summer program for area keiki, college courses, workshops, and training for community learners of all ages.
Our educational efforts center on learning 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 community archive of Kauaʻi lands, cultural practices, and ʻike to guide future restoration, caretaking, education, and governance.
