Hālau o Huluena

This lā‘au lapa‘au Master Class restores authentic traditional herbal healing practice in the community by creating and implementing a structure for active learning, immersing students in a tradition-based process of obtaining cultural competency. For just under a year, the hui has engaged in naʻau-based, ʻāina-based curriculum and approaches that convey traditional knowledge in the context of the present-day.  While the current global health crisis threatened to put a stop to the learning, the hui has pivoted to multiple online meetings per week, and Kumu are actively adjusting to continue the dissemination of valuable ʻike kūpuna (ancestral knowledge).
