I ka wā ma mua, ka wā ma hope.
The future is found in the past.
He aliʻi ka ʻāina; He kauā ke kanaka.
The land is chief; People are its servant.

The Aloha ʻĀina Project was designed to connect Native Hawaiian traditional knowledge inherent in the ahupuaʻa, or land division extending from mountain to sea, to the 21st century education system. Created by the Pacific American Foundation, the content of this blog provides foundational learning experiences that reflect Native Hawaiian culture and core values through lessons, activities, ʻōlelo noʻeau and moʻolelo.
