"Through Mele Murals, ripples of Reef’s (self) reflections as a 21st century keiki o ka ‘āina generated a deeper sense of aliveness, connection & ingenuity internally, within our ‘ohana & in turn strengthening relationship & responsibility to each other & our shared island earth."
Our objective this Spring was to provide an opportunity for our participants to have a learning experience that connected them to the values of Aloha and Aloha Aina.
Our focus was on a holistic approach to community, Hawaiian values, and a sense of place. Our participants thrived in the environment and embraced the team, each other, and the activities we created for them.
Our lesson plans were focused on the theme of Kalo, and our daily structure revolved around activities of Aloha and Hawaiian culture, including opening and closing protocols.
We have included a slide to share some images and a summary of our program.
Mahalo nui for the amazing opportunity to continue to serve.
