The overall goal of the “Lamakū Naʻauao” project is to build the capacity of the Native Hawaiian community to participate in decision-making and contribute to an enhanced capacity for our islands’ food, agricultural sectors and cultural practices to be resilient to the impacts of climate change.
The outcomes of this project include:
- LAMA publishes the Kilo Honua curriculum and distributes it to the Native Hawaiian communities and the general public.
- LAMA will conduct significant community outreach, education, and empowerment through community-based workshops and dissemination of an innovative curriculum.
- LAMA will design and publish a briefing sheet that evaluates existing laws and policies around traditional knowledge relevant to Hawai‘i and offers effective recommendations that recognize the rights of Native Hawaiians to their traditional knowledge, cultural expressions and art forms, or natural and biological resources.
- LAMA produces and disseminates project updates, publications, and other timely and relevant information through innovative methods such as a website, community television, and social media.
