Hanohano Kalalea is an intersession program that prioritizes Kanaka Maoli methods of self-sufficiency through the perpetuation of culture-based practices, including mahina ʻai (farming food), hānai holoholona (animal husbandry), ʻoihana lawaiʻa (fishing), and hoʻomākaukau meaʻai (food preparation). Programming will also be supported by introductory examinations of moʻolelo (history), mele (songs, chant) and hula (dance) that support and encourage mauli ola (health and wellness).
