New Dates Added to 2010 Native Hawaiian Education Act Puwalu

2010 Native Hawaiian Education Act Puwalu

The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement is excited to announce the addition of five more Native Hawaiian Education Act Puwalu in the month of July!  Please see below for more information on our Native Hawaiian Education Act Puwalu.

Can’t make it to any of these sessions?  Fill out our online survey to submit your recommendations and thoughts on the Native Hawaiian Education Act!  To fill out the survey, go to:

The Native Hawaiian Education Act was enacted in 1988 to address the alarming disparities Native Hawaiians faced in education and the critical condition of language preservation.  This measure, which was reauthorized in 1994 and again in 2001, is once more up for reauthorization this year.  If Congress fails to reauthorize the Native Hawaiian Education Act, the vital programs that foster innovation in education projects may be at risk.  This is a critically important program for Native Hawaiians and for the entire state of Hawaii!

Event Details

What: A series of puwalu, or community listening sessions, designed to provide important grant information on the federal Native Hawaiian Education Program to gather input and recommendations from the community to support the reauthorization of the Native Hawaiian Education Act.  This is also an opportunity to improve how the program is delivered and identify current priorities to address with the Act.

Who should attend: Native Hawaiian community members, parents, education leaders, homestead and civic club members, Native Hawaiian Education Council Island Council members, small business owners, and all those interested or working in the Native Hawaiian community.

When & Where: Throughout the months of June and July, statewide.  See schedule below for details.
