CULTURE-BASED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING
FOR CURRENT AND FUTURE TEACHERS 
OF NATIVE HAWAIIAN STUDENTS

HOʻOMŌHALA ʻIKE KUMU ʻĪNANA, or HIKI, helps current teachers of Native Hawaiian students and future teachers who want to work with Native Hawaiian students to expand their knowledge so that they can meet the unique needs of their students. 

HIKIʻs culture-based professional developments, trainings, and incentives help to grow pre- and in-service educators working with Native Hawaiian PK-12 students, thus addressing Hawaiʻi’s ongoing disparities in education. Research shows that teacher quality and cultural competence greatly impact student education outcomes.  This is especially true for Native Hawaiians and other indigenous populations and communities of color.
