Hoʻokumu - How to be a Kumu in Hawaiʻi 

Hoʻokumu means; To make a beginning, originate, create, commence, establish, inaugurate, initiate, institute, found, or to start. In the Hoʻokumu workshop, we will create an opportunity for educators to reflect on the ʻōlelo noʻeau or proverb; “He lālā nō wau no kuʻu kumu,” I am a branch of my tree/my teacher. In Hawaiian culture hula dancers, carvers, kahuna, and all other practices recognized the genealogy or intergenerational line of teachers and knowledge from which they stem. Each teacher will be guided through a process that allows them to dive deeper into their moʻokūʻauhau genealogy of learning.
