A‘o Makua (For Families & Communities)

KSDL’s Aʻo Makua is an online enrichment program for adults interested in Hawaiian language and culture. With Aʻo Makua, you can learn about or rediscover Hawaiian values, beliefs, and traditions in the comfort of your own home, and at your own pace.

Our goals are to provide:

  • Culturally based learning opportunities worldwide, via a self-paced online environment;
  • Access to culturally relevant resources for students to share with their families; and
  • A virtual community where students can share ideas, resources, and experiences related to ʻike Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian knowledge).

Although primarily designed for parents and caregivers of children ages 0–5, there are a wealth of materials and activities that can be utilized by people of all ages who want to expand their knowledge base.
