About the event

Join the UHM Office of Civic and Community Engagement in partnership with the American Association of University Women at UHM (AAUW at UH Mānoa RIO) and Student Parents at Mānoa (SP@M) to explore the question: "where do we live?" It's a simple question that makua and keiki alike understand. We can think about our homes, the streets we live on, the valley, the ocean, the moku, the ahupuaʻa, the island, the nation. But residing on the unceded lands of Kō Hawaiʻi Paeʻāina, “where do we live?” is a fundamental question in another sense. Many of us are settlers residing on ‘āina that is stewarded by Kanaka Maoli. Kanaka Maoli and ‘āina are one community. How can we expand our understanding of ʻāina to inform our kuleana as Kanaka Maoli and settlers to know where we live and in knowing this share with our keiki, the next generation? For the second part in our "Where Do We Live?" series we want to engage parents and caregivers as a community in a tangible experience of ʻāina. ʻĀina’s influence cannot remain the the realm of theory, but must also be experienced through the senses. Angie Solomon, Student Parents at Mānoa Coordinator, will be guiding us through a tour of kid-friendly areas, history, plants, moʻolelo, and other stories of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Campus. Join us as we explore ʻāina together in Mānoa Valley! Date: Saturday, February 26, 2022 Time: 9:00am - 11:30am HST Location: TBD - Mānoa Heritage Center or UH Mānoa Campus The whole ʻohana is welcome. We will be serving to-go lunch bentos so please make sure to give an accurate head count of who will be joining in the RSVP form below. More information will be emailed as the event gets closer. We look forward to seeing you there!
