HĀ: Place-based Learning in the Hawaiian Context

In the 2017–18 school year, Kona Pacific began the process of incorporating a new educational framework developed by the Office of Hawaiian Education, established by the Hawaii DOE in 2015.

The Office of Hawaiian Education started with a question: What would an educational system centered on core Hawaiian values look like?

The result of the discussion and research arising out this question was the development of Nā Hopena Aʻo (HĀ), a learning framework rooted in Hawaiiʻs indigenous context. HĀ (pronounced ʻhah”), meaning “breath” or “to breathe” in Hawaiian, supports a holistic learning process in which outcomes are meant to be demonstrated by everyone within the schools – students, teachers, staff and administrators.

Nā Hopena A‘o or HĀ are six outcomes to be strengthened in every student over the course of their K-12 learning journey, supported by faculty and staff who are models of behaviors that illustrate for students what these outcomes might look like in practice.
