Hawaiian Values in Practice
The Institute for Native Pacific Education and Culture, fondly known as INPEACE, empowers communities—from the ground up. From pre-natal education to small business workshops, we nurture growing families through Hawaiian culture-based early learning education and promote community strengthening through educational equity, teacher development, and family economic capacity building programs.
Empowering Commununity: Larrilyn Holu-Tamashiro
INPEACE’s new video highlighting our community impact focuses on Larrilynn Holu-Tamashiro. She earned her degree in education through the support of INPEACE’s Ka Lama Ka Lama O Ke Kaiaulu cohort (later to become the Kūlia and Ka Lama Education Academy). Larrilyn has been teaching for 20 years in the Waianae community, currently working as the Curriculum Coordinator at Ka Waihona o Ka Na’auao in Nānākuli. Larrilyn confesses, “if I did not have the Ka Lama program, there was no way I would have finished…they made it possible to be a successful teacher, not just on the Coast, but anywhere.”
