Seeds We Planted

Portraits of a Native Hawaiian Charter School

"Like the stone walls of the ancient irrigation ditches rebuilt by the Halau Ku Mana Native Hawaiian Charter School that Noelani Goodyear-Ka‘opua writes of, this book channels the pain, struggle, hope, and mana (power and authority) of the Hawaiian people into a place of life and growth. Drawing deftly upon Native studies, history, anthropology, gender studies, cultural studies, and education, The Seeds We Planted redefines the meaning and purpose of ethnography." —Ty P. Kawika Tengan, University of Hawai’i, Manoa

In 1999, Noelani Goodyear-Ka'opua was among a group of young educators and parents who founded Halau Ku Mana, a secondary school that remains one of the only Hawaiian culture-based charter schools in urban Honolulu. Les mer

In 1999, Noelani Goodyear-Ka'opua was among a group of young educators and parents who founded Halau Ku Mana, a secondary school that remains one of the only Hawaiian culture-based charter schools in urban Honolulu. The Seeds We Planted tells the story of Halau Ku Mana against the backdrop of the Hawaiian struggle for self-determination and the U.S. charter school movement, revealing a critical tension: the successes of a school celebrating indigenous culture are measured by the standards of settler colonialism.


How, Goodyear-Ka'opua asks, does an indigenous people use schooling to maintain and transform a common sense of purpose and interconnection of nationhood in the face of forces of imperialism and colonialism? What roles do race, gender, and place play in these processes? Her book, with its richly descriptive portrait of indigenous education in one community, offers practical answers steeped in the remarkable-and largely suppressed-history of Hawaiian popular learning and literacy.


This uniquely Hawaiian experience addresses broader concerns about what it means to enact indigenous cultural-political resurgence while working within and against settler colonial structures. Ultimately, The Seeds We Planted shows that indigenous education can foster collective renewal and continuity.

"Like the stone walls of the ancient irrigation ditches rebuilt by the Halau Ku Mana Native Hawaiian Charter School that Noelani Goodyear-Ka‘opua writes of, this book channels the pain, struggle, hope, and mana (power and authority) of the Hawaiian people into a place of life and growth. Drawing deftly upon Native studies, history, anthropology, gender studies, cultural studies, and education, The Seeds We Planted redefines the meaning and purpose of ethnography." —Ty P. Kawika Tengan, University of Hawai’i, Manoa

"In this powerfully told story of Indigenous language, education, and cultural reclamation, Goodyear-Ka‘opua documents how the seeds of resistance to colonial schooling have brought forth a remarkable educational enterprise, the Halau Ku Mana public charter school. The school exemplifies a strengths-based, Indigenous self-determined pedagogy. This beautifully written book is one that all those concerned with education for a critical, sustainable, pluricultural democracy will want to read, use, and share widely." —Teresa L. McCarty, University of California, Los Angeles
