‘EKE
(Experiential Kūpuna-inspired Education)

EKE is based on a foundation of Hawaiian culture and practices that explores the traditions of our kūpuna and provides experiential learning through mo‘olelo. Mo‘olelo will support OLA learning units. A digital book list of selected titles, a reading reflection, and activities have been designed and produced for sharing with project participants. This is a collection of books housed in the Lelekamanu Lending Library. Please contact your islandʻs educator to learn more about the availability of specific titles.
