—Genealogy, genealogical story
“At the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, we value the deep Native Hawaiian genealogies of this place and seek to learn from their wisdom in best caring for each other and our island home. We also celebrate the many moʻokūʻauhau of people, places and knowledge systems that converge on our campus from places near and far, east and west. We strive to provide opportunities for each member of our campus community to further connect to and learn from their genealogies, which include not only their family lineages but also the genealogies of knowledge systems and world views that have shaped them. By doing so, we cultivate a campus culture rich in diverse ways of thinking about our connections to each other and to our island earth.”
