Indigenous Research

The Kū-A-Kanaka Indigenous Research Institute is an independent native Hawaiian research institution grounded in a Hawaiian research methodology called Māʻawe Pono, developed by Kū-A-Kanaka Founder and CEO Kū Kahakalau, the first person in the world to earn a Ph.D. in Indigenous Education.  Māʻawe Pono translates to "walking the trail of honor and responsibility" and is designed to assist Indigenous communities world-wide to utilize Indigenous research to bring about positive changes that empower Natives, protect our natural resources and perpetuate Native language, culture and traditions.

We want to be a part of the solution, and find answers to the issues facing Native communities in Hawaiʻi and beyond, as we work together with like-minded individuals, groups and organizations, until we are to once again in charge of our own destiny!
