University of Hawaii at Manoa
School of Hawaiian Knowledge
Hawai‘inuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge is the newest school at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. We recognize the unique status of the Native Hawaiian people and recognize their unique connection to these forms of knowledge by encouraging, supporting, facilitating, and ensuring the incorporation of Native Hawaiians at all levels of the university. We seek to accomplish this mission with a Native Hawaiian perspective that recognizes the holistic aspects of this knowledge, its diversities, and the importance of practical applications. Our mission is to apply this knowledge to provide service and support to the Hawaiian community, as well as extending this knowledge outward from the academy and the community, into the Pacific and other international domains.
Each block in our Hawai‘inuiākea’s graphic element represents the balance and structure of each department within our school while embracing the interrelationships and intersections we each have with each other.
