Aloha! My name is Kamaleikuʻuipookalani Kalehuawehe and I am from Paukūkalo, Maui. It is with humility and respect that I carry the responsibility of educating the next generations through the native language of our beautiful Hawaiʻi. This is my fourth year teaching at Nāwahī and my second year teaching at the high school level. I am a secondary social studies teacher educating our students about World, American, and Hawaiian history in hopes to expand their worldview perspective and knowledge. I am a graduate of Ka Haka ʻUla ʻO Keʻelikōlani, a graduate of the Kahuawaiola Indigenous Teacher Education Program, and have recently obtained a masters degree in Indigenous Language and Culture Education. May the knowledge of our kūpuna and the Hawaiian language thrive in everything we do. OLA!
