Background and Purpose:
5
This tool helps to focus Kanaeokana efforts to grow aloha 'āina leaders (the Kanaeokana nuʻukia, as detailed in the Palapala Hoʻoulu Aloha 'Āina [currently in draft form]) and forward principles in its Palapala ʻŌnaehana Hoʻonaʻauao Hawaiʻi Hawaiian Education System Declaration: 1. ‘Āina: I Hawaiʻi no nā Hawaiʻi i ka ʻāina. Hawaiʻi, its lands and resources make us Hawaiian. 2. ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi: I ka ʻōlelo nō ke ola, i ka ʻōlelo nō ka make. In the language is life. In the language is death. 3. ʻIke Hawaiʻi: Ua lehulehu a manomano ka ʻikena a ka Hawai’i: Great and numerous is the knowledge of the Hawaiians.

The tool is intended to be a living document that can readily revised as Kanaeokana evolves over time. It can be used by those considering projects to gauge how well aligned the project is to Kanaeokana goals. It can also be used more broadly to help guide the strategic growth of kula, organizations, and initiatives.
