We are blessed to have been raised in the traditions of our ancestors here on Molokaʻi. The children of this land are cherished and loved. Over the course of time, we have been charged with the responsibility of raising children in the customs of this land. Here we will continue to do the important work of education in the native language of our Hawai'i, and to teach the new generation the knowledge of our ancestors!
