Welina Mānoa

Classroom: 0-8

Welina is a greeting of affection, similar to aloha. Used alongside Mānoa, the indigenous name for the place, this phrase can be understood to literally mean “greetings to you, Mānoa” and is often used by people from or tied to Mānoa to introduce themselves to another place or group of people from outside Mānoa. In this website, you will find Hawaiian and English language, culture-rich series of learning experiences that are grounded in an intersection of Native Hawaiian knowledge and contemporary scientific knowledge of water and land/ocean resources, as well as management and ecosystem sustainability.
