Liko A’e Native Hawaiian Leadership Program Receives $1.5M

University of Hawaiʻi Maui College’s Liko Aʻe Native Hawaiian Leadership Program received its second year award after a successful first year annual report.  This award of $1.5M from the U.S. Department of Education Title VII Elementary and Secondary Education Act funds the Program through August 2014.

This year marks the tenth year that Liko Aʻe has been assisting Native Hawaiian students with financial aid and student support services, now available on all islands and nationwide.  Since receiving its first USDOE award in 2003, over 2000 students have received college scholarships, college counseling, and critically-necessary mentoring and support services through the Program.  Our decade of service to the Hawaiian community has resulted in a deep understanding of how best to serve Hawaiian students, and the Program’s momentum keeps building.

“This second-year funding for our Leadership Program allows us to provide scholarships and wrap-around support services to Native Hawaiians students with a greater focus on serving those from rural and under-represented areas and non-traditional students,” says Program Director, Malia Davidson.

Participating scholars also are required to perform leadership service in their communities.  The Program has identified a number of specific community projects and organizations that scholars will serve this year on Maui, Hawaiʻi Island and Oʻahu.  After-school tutoring sessions, mentoring programs, and focused assistance to high school students studying to complete their GED are just a few of the target areas through which the Program’s undergraduate scholarship recipients will provide community service this year.  Graduate recipients will act as team leaders for their undergraduate colleagues, and also will share their academic research through public and digital speaker events on various campuses.

For most of us, the cycle of education comes from multiple forms of schooling, as expressed by the famous ʻōlelo […]

Kalaupapa Exhibit On Display at UH Maui College

An historical exhibit developed by Ka ‘Ohana O Kalaupapa will be on display in the atrium of the Ka`a`ike Building at UH Maui College from October 16-December 6. The exhibit, “A Source of Light, Constant and Never-Fading,” emphasizes the strong relationship between the people of Kalaupapa and the Royal Family of Hawaii, a chapter of the history of Kalaupapa not often told.

“The ‘Ohana is so excited to bring this exhibit to Maui College, “ said Clarence “Boogie” Kahilihiwa, a resident of Kalaupapa for more than 50 years and President of Ka ‘Ohana O Kalaupapa. “This is a great opportunity to learn more about the history of Kalaupapa as told by the people themselves.”

A blessing will be held at 6 p.m. October 16 followed by a Powerpoint presentation, “Bringing The Families Home,” by ‘Ohana Coordinator Valerie Monson who will also lead walkthroughs of the exhibit on October 19 and 26 and November 2, all beginning at 1 p.m. The public is invited to all events; there is no charge.

Between 1866 and 1969, an estimated 8,000 people were taken from their families and sent to Kalaupapa because of Hawaii’s leprosy isolation policies.  About 5,200 of these individuals were sent to Kalaupapa prior to the annexation of Hawai‘i by the United States, approximately 97% of whom were Native Hawaiian.

Members of the Royal Family were deeply moved by the situation facing so many of their “beloved people” who were sick.  They visited Kalaupapa, read petitions, wrote letters, mourned friends who had been taken from their midst and did what they could to make life better for those afflicted with the disease.  Leprosy was not an abstract problem, but a very real presence in their lives.

At the same time, the […]
