Aloha mai kākou! My name is T. Kaha’iola Harders and I am a mentor here at Mu’o A’e. I am married to a loving water man husband Ethan Harders and come from a huge loving ‘Ohana (Johnson/Dukelow/Aiwohi). I was born in Boise, Idaho and was raised here in Hawai’i, Maui. I am a Hawaiian Language graduate from the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa where I earned a B.A. in ‘Ōlelo Hawai’i. I am also pursuing a degree in Education and hope that I can help move the people of Hawai’i forward through our education system. I believe that it is important for us as native Hawaiian students to become positive role models in our communities, and to give back to those very sources that feed and nurture us. As po’e Hawai’i, we are given many resources to assist us on our many journeys in life and I hope I too can be a tool and a resource for the many that begin to embark on their journey here with Kaiao.

Ke aloha no,

Kaha’iola Harders
