Title:ʻIKE ʻ INA KŪPUNA BASED EDUCATION APPLYING HAWAIIAN FRAMEWORK AS A TOOL IN THE CURRICULUM
Authors:Irvine, Aliah
Date Issued:2021
Abstract:The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of a Hawaiian culturally
responsive, place-based education curriculum on student learning and engagement.
ʻIke ʻāina kūpuna based education is a Hawaiian ancestral knowledge framework
drawing on Hawaiian cultural practices such as kilo, kanu, oli, mele, kumulipo, and hei,
kuahu, and hale building to engage students in science education. This study was
conducted at schools across the Waiʻanae Coast, working with Waiʻanae Intermediate
School science department and teachers as well as Nānākuli High and Intermediate
School Hoʻopulapula Academy students and teachers. Data included both qualitative
and quantitative methods, e.g., photographs, interviews, student writings, surveys, and
focus groups using outdoor activities like gardening and outplanting as a tool to
understand what impact incorporating ʻike ʻāina kūpuna based education has on
students. Data and analysis revealed that learning through a hands-on, Hawaiian
place-based curriculum grounded in using Hawaiian ancestral knowledge had positive
outcomes for students. Students loved learning in their garden and enjoyed learning
about Hawaiian culture. The findings have implications for researchers and educators
who are considering using a Hawaiian place-based curriculum framework.
