  • COMMUNITY EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES – Pūʻā Foundation has developed the UA MAU KE EA Collection – a textbook, historical documentary and theatrical version as community educational resources. The Collection is used as a teaching tool for capacity building and training within the context of sharing stories related to historical/community trauma and connecting people today with application to their own healing journey.  It is offered to support community learning for families, students, teachers, pastors, lay people, business professionals, counselors, kamaʻaina, malahini, anyone.  Facing future – Ka Wa Mahope – learning from our ancestors, our aliʻi, from those of the past who have dealt with adversity & “trauma” & have overcome, provides inspirational examples of positive change today.
