Living Hawaiian Culture
Kumukahi is an online resource that presents Hawaiian culture from a firsthand, present-day perspective. Kumukahi is designed for teachers and students in formal and informal educational settings and can also be enjoyed at home with the ʻohana.

KE ALA O KA MAHINA
Hawaiian Moon Calendar
This Hawaiian calendar is a practical guide for daily activities such as farming, fishing, and planning based on traditional moon cycles. The mahina (moon) is an embodiment of the goddess Hina. The circular design offers a Hawaiian perspective on the flow of time, reflecting the relationships among the spiritual, natural, and human realms. Our kūpuna (ancestors) used the phases of the mahina as a guide to sustain life and maintain balance in the environment.
Hūlili: Multidisciplinary Research on Hawaiian Well-Being is a forum for current research that examines the nature, needs, and strengths of Kānaka Maoli and Native Hawaiian communities. Through collaboration and critique, Hūlili fosters new connections to mobilize greater Hawaiian well-being.
