Āina, or land, is core to the Native Hawaiian identity and wellbeing—framing our shared histories, traditions and relationships, as well as providing great sustenance.
Kamehameha Schools holds a great kuleana, or responsibility, to sustainably care for, nurture and enhance our lands for communities of today and tomorrow.
As stewards of ‘Āina Pauahi, Kamehameha Schools cares for approximately 363,000 acres of land passed down through Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop’s moʻokūʻauhau (genealogy) in perpetuity. These lands help to achieve and support the schools’ educational mission by balancing returns across five values—community, culture, economics, education, and environment—to generate positive impact from a vast land and property portfolio that spans the pae ‘āina (Hawaiian Islands).
