Moolelo Monday

Moʻolelo Monday

On the first Monday of the month a traditional or modern moʻolelo depicting the culture, values, language or traditions of Hawaiʻi, will be shared through a virtual platform. These mo‘olelo promote literacy within the classroom and home, and encourage ʻohana to read and learn together. Moʻolelo are shared by staff and guest storytellers.

MOʻOKALALEO

In the 1820’s, Kauikeaouli, Kamehameha III was the catalyst for the rise of literacy in Hawaiʻi. He stated, “ ʻO Koʻu Aupuni, he Aupuni palapala koʻu.  My kingdom shall be a kingdom of literacy”. Within our moʻokalaleo, we share a literacy component that extends our moʻolelo journey.

Moʻo ʻŌlelo

Weekly, a Mo‘o ‘Ōlelo, a succession of Hawaiian words or phrases will be shared.  The mana‘o behind each word or phrase relates to the mo‘olelo being presented.  This component will enhance cultural awareness and knowledge through Hawaiian language.

ʻO kekahi o kā Papahana Kuaola pahuhopu ka hemo ʻana i nā mea lāhui hoʻohiolo ʻoiai e ulu a mālama nei i nā lāhui kulaiwi.

One of the goals of the Papahana Kuaola is to eliminate destructive/invasive species while growing and preserving native indigenous species.

Ulu ʻia ke kalo i puʻepuʻe lālani ma Papahana Kuaola.

Kalo is grown in the puʻepuʻe lālani mounding style at Papahana Kuaola.

Kahawai or streams are the veins in the ahupuaʻa which provide the life source of fresh water throuhout the community.

Hiki i ka wai ke kālai i kona ala a hiki i ka pōhaku. A i ka hei ʻana, hana ke wai i kahi ala hou.

Waipao means water that scoops, gouges or chisels out. Water can carve its way even through stone. And when trapped, water makes a new path.
