SEE WHY PEOPLE LOVE KA HALE HOAKA
We are on a mission to help you bring ‘ōlelo Hawai’i into your daily life!
We’re inspired everyday by the hundreds of ʻohana sharing their stories about breaking down the barriers and bringing ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi back into their lives! Together, we will build new leaders grounded in their identity with a firm sense of kuleana (responsibility) to place and community.
"Mahalo nui to Ka Hale Hoaka! The keiki have been engaged and excited to be engrossed in their culture with curriculum that was created in the same place they live with the utmost respect for their ancestors which has been so difficult to find over the years. It has been a beautiful experience. This may be the best investment Iʻve made for their education."
- Chelsie Evans

"I have been searching for a way to learn the Hawaiian language and culture, and be able to bring my family into it. Ka Hale Hoaka definitely does this all! I have been so pleased already and I’m not even half way through the keiki lessons! This is so fun for my son and I! Stories, songs and learning all together. Kumu Maile is wonderful and makes learning easy! Mahalo Ka Hale Hoaka and Kumu Maile! "
