The Mauna Kea
Welina mai kākou, warm greetings.
Welcome to the Mauna Kea Syllabus Project website. Before exploring the Syllabus, please scroll down and read this page in its entirety.
What is the Mauna Kea Syllabus?
The Mauna Kea Syllabus Project is an educational resource that seeks to bring diverse voices of our lāhui together in order to enhance education for Hawaiʻi communities and beyond. Similar to Standing Rock, Black Lives Matter, and Immigration syllabi, we’ve developed thematic categories, guiding questions, readings, and resources, after inviting some of their contributors to workshop and share their experiences. There, you will find a set of carefully curated curriculum units around topics relevant to teaching for Mauna Kea. Additionally, you will find interviews with elders, community leaders, and organizers throughout our syllabus.
The Mauna Kea Syllabus is a living document, which means that over time we will continue to add new content, build our hui, and pull together the ʻike of our lāhui in meaningful and more transformative ways. The contents of each section can change, grow, and shift as we bring together our ʻike, as conversations change and grow, and as our people create art, write truths, and build towards more creative tomorrows.
