About this guide

This guide was created as part of an initiative to assist students, faculty/staff, and the community, with learning more about place in Hawaiʻi. Hoʻāla Hou, a Title III funded program facilitated through the Hulili Ke Kukui Hawaiian Center, has assisted HonCC students, while also working with faculty & staff to help infuse Native Hawaiian language, history, and culture, into all campus service areas. This guide was created during the Fall semester of 2019, and launched in Spring 2020 by librarian and Papa Keoneʻula (cohort 4) member, Allyson Ota, and is maintained by the librarians at HonCC Library. Its purpose is to help you learn about place here in Hawaiʻi. As you look through, please feel free to take the survey, and provide feedback to let us know of additional resources we may want to consider adding to this guide, and any questions, comments, or feedback you have.

Mahalo for stopping by, and please feel free to contact us here at the library. All contact information can be found on our home page.
