  • What to expect

    The program teaches life skills and Hawaiian values through mele (songs,) oli (chants), arts and crafts, and other explorations in the Hawaiian culture.

    Hawaiian arts cannot be separated from the culture, language and values of Hawai'i. An integration of all these areas, including the use of 'Olelo (Hawaiian language) are incorporated into the curriculum and classroom activities in order to enhance second language skills, cultural perspectives, and a greater sense of self- and social awareness.

    Classes are appropriate for students with little or no experience, as well as for those who have studied the language and/or culture.
