Oahu locations & Virtual
Moʻokūʻauhau & Moʻōlelo
A non-traditional hackathon; expanding on traditional kanaka concepts including moʻokūʻauhau, our collective identity, and honoring our ancestors; using modern technologies; bringing a foundation of kanaka digital tooling to the world.
Come join us as we collectively explore our kanaka identity/heritage—with moʻokūʻauhau as our project’s foundation—using modern technology & tooling. Pretty cool, yeah?
We are starting with an idea around coming together to build a genealogy tool. One that is rooted in kanaka concepts mai ka hiko (da’ olden times) and through a present-day lens.
So you! Yeah, you! We need you! Both those with technical and cultural expertise. Kanaka—and technical allies interested in participating—should come with a good attitude, a learning mentality, and, most likely, extra extension cords.
Bump shoulders with others like you. As our Hawaiians in Tech community has realized, you should know we exist and are tʻriving.
Looking for individuals who can help us:
