Wednesday, April 26, 2023
11:30 am–12:45 pm
Campus Walk

Please join us for a campus huaka‘i, or fieldtrip, to explore the geological, historical, and cultural influences on the UH Mānoa campus. During this short walk, we will make three stops: the campus entrance on East-West Road, Webster Hall, and Queen Lili‘uokalani Center. The walking pace will be slow, to encourage reflection and discussion. During the walk, we aim to demonstrate how science can be taught in ways that honor Hawaiian culture and history.  We also hope to stimulate interest and collaborations to develop additional interdisciplinary, place-based curricula in support of the UH campus goal to foster a Native Hawaiian place of learning. 

This huaka‘i heavily borrows from fieldtrips previously developed by Drs. Kaiwipuni Lipe, Christina Higgins, Kapua Adams, and Scott Rowland. For more information, please see A Campus Huaka‘i: Weaving Geological, Historical & Cultural Perspectives in Hawai‘i.” The places that we will visit are described as stops #3, 4, and 5 of this publication.

For participants who wish to join a post-fieldtrip discussion (12:45-1:30 pm), lunch will be provided.
