‘Ohana ‘Ike is a curriculum for `ohana (families) that bridges the Hawaiian practice of building a wa‘a (canoe) to college and career readiness. This curriculum was created by Kamehameha Schools, an institution founded by the will of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, which serves students of Native Hawaiian ancestry. Attendees will be introduced to Native Hawaiian practices and learn the purpose and function these practices possess within Hawaiian education and the `Ohana `Ike curriculum. Attendees will also engage in an `Ohana `Ike lesson, which bridges Hawaiian and Western ways of being to support `ohana (families) to complete the college and career planning process.
