Future Ancestors

The Future Ancestors Program was designed to empower students to explore their community in search of Waiwai (Value and Richness). These learning experiences lay the foundation for future explorations into Indigenous Innovation and Entrepreneurship that built around Native Hawaiian values and perspectives.
