Hawaiian Kilo, Navigation and Connecting Kids to Place – Any Place!




Participants will be ACTIVELY engaged in introductions to Hawaiian kilo observation, navigation and an exploration of resources available to teach these skills to students of all ages – anywhere! Participants will also be introduced to an `āina site (Kapapapuhi in `Ewa, O`ahu) and education resources available online from our non-profit, for free! To top off this workshop, the presenter will share some key lessons learned from 35 years as a public school teacher engaging students in `āina-based education throughout Hawai`i and Oregon. Participation will be optimized if they have access to a view of the outdoors, an open browser window for guided web-surfing and a space to move at least 3x3ft.
