Hawai`i Maoli, in partnership with the Honolulu District Complex of Hawaii's Department of Education (DOE) and Prince K?h?o Hawaiian Civic Club, will develop the E Noelo I Ka Ike (To Search for Knowledge) Project to increase high school students' knowledge resources in an academic library as well as increase K?puna Resource Teachers' and Hawaiian Civic Club members' access to current Hawaiian resource materials. The project will address a lack of awareness, access to, and competency with culturally relevant academic resources and Native Hawaiians' feelings of inadequacy or lack of knowledge because of educational, geographic, and other barriers. By the end of project, 20 high school students will be provided with a 12-hour library research skills training program, including introductory fieldtrips to academic libraries; and 40 K?puna resource teachers and 100 Hawaiian Civic Club members will participate in a 3-hour training program that will introduce them to current Hawaiian resource databases.
