AVA Konohiki: Ancestral Visions of ‘Āina
This presentation will be an overview of the goals of the Kamakakūokaʻāina Grant and how Graduate Research Assistants (GRA's) harvested, transcribed, combined and indexed, land documents and provided them on a website, full text searchable for all. Kamakakūokaʻāina literally means "a vision of the land." The name of the organization, AVA, stands for “Ancestral Visions of ʻĀina." ʻĀina refers to "land that one eats from." Their long term goal is to be food sustainable and to train young Native Hawaiians to be Konohiki, or traditional Hawaiian Land Stewards, who manage the water, land, agricultural and fishing resources. An explanation of the following terms "LCA", "FT", "NT" will be discussed, and how they can be useful when searching on the website avakonohiki.org. Lastly asking the question, How can we be of service?
Kūlani Mahinaarangi Jeremiah-Wong:
Kūlani is a full-time mother, young grandmother and wife who had the determination to go back to school. A recent graduate of the University Hawaii at Mānoa, Kūlani has both her Bachelors & Masters degrees in Hawaiian Studies. Her thesis, "Na Palapalaʻaina i Loko o Na Mele" is about Hawaiian land and how the ancestors used songs to create an intellectual map of the Hawaiian Islands. It also looks at the mapping of our ‘āina well before any Westerners arrived and before the knowledge of our land was put onto paper. Kūlani enjoys time spent with her ohana and reading novels about everything Polynesian.
Jenny Moanikeala Estrella:
Jenny has graduated with a degree in Information Systems from Brigham Young University Hawaiʻi and a degree in Hawaiian Studies from UH Mānoa. Currently she is a graduate student in Educational Foundations and a GRA with Kamakakuokaaina. Jenny enjoys education as evident in her efforts to home-school her three children ages 3, 5 and 9 and her plans to research Hawaiian based teaching methodologies found within the ʻohana through moʻolelo and experiential learning.
