So we’ve created the Keiki Program online course for your whole family that uses dance, music, and engaging storytelling to pass on timeless Hawaiian wisdom...and have tons of fun while doing it!
Meet Kumu Maile
The creator of our program, Mailelani Naehu, knows what it’s like growing up feeling disconnected to her culture, wondering if she even deserved to have access to the teachings, music, and dance she so wanted to enrich her life.
Eventually, Maile became a kumu (teacher) and is Director of the Molokaʻinuiahina project where she teaches culture and values through ʻolelo Hawaii (Hawaiian language), moʻolelo (oral traditions), hula (dance), and oli (chant) to pass on to the next generation.
She's been speaking fluent Hawaiian for almost three decades, and has been honored to teach keiki from all over Hawaii for more than 20 years.
So What Makes the Keiki Program So Unique?
We’ve designed the Keiki Program - Level 1 to maximize learning, impact, and fun for kids ages 5 to 11…along with the whole family!
Here’s a taste of how it works:
Online Videos for Easy Access - The online course includes 16 video classes at approximately 40 minutes per class. These will remain in your Membership Area so you can always go back and watch the sessions again.
Downloadable Worksheets and Slides for Various Sessions - Classes include handouts so families can review the material as they practice ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi together throughout the week, as well as downloadable slides to print out and use around the home for further learning and enrichment
Parents and Keiki Learning Together - We’ve designed the course to be enjoyed with parents and keiki of all ages!
Lifetime Access - Each household has lifetime access to the course and downloadable worksheets so you can review, grow deeper, and enjoy a lifetime of learning
Imua! Let’s Get Started!

During this difficult time when schools are closed and life feels like it’s on hold, our kids don’t have to waste their days glued to their phones or bouncing off the walls out of boredom.
Instead, take advantage of this unique time and provide a meaningful learning environment you’ve wanted to give your family… just never knew how.
Aloha and see you in the course!
