Kumu Maile Naehu is an educator, performer, artist, community organizer, and activist of Aloha ‘Āina from the island of Moloka’i, Hawaiʻi. Stemming from a very diverse multi-racial genealogy, she is Boricua being of African, Taino and Spanish descent as well as Kanaka Maoli, Portuguese and Chinese. As co-founder of Ka Hale Hoaka, an online school of Hawaiian knowledge, her teachings are grounded in Indigenous philosophies and practices such as mo’olelo, ʻōlelo Hawai’i, hula, and oli. Ka Hale Hoaka’s online curriculum has enabled Hawaiian schools to break away from a Eurocentric curriculum developed on the mainland and provide students of all ages with the ability to learn sciences, social studies, language arts, fine arts and more through an indigenous cultural lens. Using the online learning platform Thinkific, Kumu Maile has been able to create an easy-to-use, interactive learning experience that’s accessible to any person or school across Hawaiʻi and the world.
This month Hazel Kahan is pleased to again welcome Beth Young, veteran twin forks reporter and founder-owner of East End Beacon publishing, to talk to North Fork Works about the growing collaboration among civic and advocacy community groups including new residents who bring expertise developed in communities in other parts of the country. Ms. Young illustrates this with examples from a pending vote this week to limit house size in Southold Town.
