“To become a Native Hawaiian Place of Learning (UHM Strategic Plan, 2022) is to move toward Decolonial Indigenization (Gaudry and Lorenz, 2018). At the heart of any Native Hawaiian place of learning is aloha ‘āina (Native Hawaiian Place of Learning). Aloha ʻĀina involves paying deeper attention to what constitutes knowledge, moving away from Eurocentric curriculum, practicing land-based learning, speaking Indigenous languages, engaging in community-based participatory research, supporting community capacity-building, and positioning Indigenous peoples as theorists, rather than as subjects of research (Anderson, 2019). This project seeks to understand UHM College of Education, School for Teacher Education faculty and student understanding of ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi and ʻike Hawaiʻi in a series of post activities surveys that contribute to a Native Hawaiian Place of Learning. ” By K. ʻAlohilani HN Okamura
