Description
Na Kamalei-K. E. E. P. – Koolauloa Early Education Program is a Native Hawaiian nonprofit organization that includes Ho‘ala Na Pua, a parent-child interaction and family education program that services the families of Ko‘olauloa, O‘ahu, Hawai‘i. The Houlu Hou Project: Stories Told By Us is a project of Na Kamalei that is funded in part by the Administration for Native Americans. The project goal is to provide families with services and opportunities that foster culturally appropriate and healthy development of a balanced child. The oral legacy within our community strengthens our families and produces stories that bring meaning to our lives and that help identify who we are and where we are from. Our resource partners are Ko‘olauloa community organizations that support the advancement of Native Hawaiian children and their families through the creation of children’s books. Stories of history, geography, language and culture are born and shared in the context of the community. Kupuna (elders) now encourage the sharing of these stories so that future generations will benefit from this legacy. This series of picture books includes stories told by members of the community who engage in the values, language and cultural practices of Native Hawaiians in Ko‘olauloa. The Houlu Hou Project: Stories Told By Us has worked alongside our community organizations, sharing skills and mana‘o (thoughts) as we collectively learn from each other. This production process is unique because the stories are from Ko‘olauloa, by the community members, and are for the children and their families. Native Hawaiians of Ko‘olauloa selected the stories, the text and pictures for their books. Each book is published in the official languages of Hawai‘i: Hawaiian and English. Blends of ancient and modern Hawaiian words were included within the texts of our stories. The use and spelling of selected words, while commonly used by the residents of Ko‘olauloa O‘ahu, may not be as typical in other regions of Hawai‘i. The Ho‘ulu Hou Project: Stories Told By Us participants have strived to retain the correct usage of the Hawaiian language within the processes and the pages of our stories. These books for all the children are lovingly dedicated to Auntie Maxine Kahaulelio, founder of Na Kamalei, Keoana Hanchett, Na Kamalei’s first program director, and Kawai Aona-Ueoka. They continue to inspire us. Mahalo Ke Akua.
