Manoa Heritage Center (Honolulu, HI 96822-1752)
Jennifer Elizabeth Engle (Project Director: February 2017 to June 2021)
Connecting Educators through Native Hawaiian Cultural Resources

Educational programs and preservation activities related to Hawaiian language, culture, and history.

Manoa Heritage Center (MHC) will partner with three organizations and institutions, Awaiaulu, the Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE), and the University of Hawaii’s Uehiro Academy for Philosophy and Ethics in Education to: 1) create public access to previously unavailable Hawaiian language primary sources; 2) build an infrastructure whereby public school teachers will develop and use culturally responsive Hawaiian History unit plans utilizing MHC’s resources in their classrooms; and 3) enhance and inform MHC’s interpretive plan and programs to include a worldview perspective based on Native Hawaiian history and knowledge. As part of this project, MHC will develop and offer three annual professional development (PDe3) workshops for Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) teachers statewide including neighbor islands.
