Indigenous Education Symposium
USING THE LONG LINE: APPLYING NATIVE INGENUITY IN EDUCATION
May 18, 2015 at the Hawai’i Convention Center

Kū-A-Kanaka LLC is proud to announce our second Indigenous Education Symposium – USING THE LONG LINE: APPLYING NATIVE INGENUITY IN EDUCATION, which will take place on May 18, 2015 at the Hawai’i Convention Center, in conjunction with the Pacific Rim 2015 International Conference on Disabilities and Diversity.

This informative one-day Professional Development Institute brings together Native educators, social entrepreneurs, farmers and other leaders to share their ways of integrating Native values and cultural knowledge across the board, and provide practical advice on how to grow self-sustaining culturally-driven organizations, which assure that our vast Indigenous knowledge and practices are passed down to the next generation.

Each of the four 90-minute colloquia below will be moderated by a facilitator and involve four speaker presentations, followed by small group discussions on the topic, with the final 15 minutes used for discussion summaries and comments from the audience.

  • Culture and Language Revitalization and Practice
  • Elders, Family and Community Engagement and Empowerment
  • Food Sovereignty and Environmental Sustainability
  • Organizational Values and Economic Viability
