About INPEACE

The empowerment of individuals, families and communities – through programs driven by Native Hawaiian values – is at the heart of the work we do at the Institute for Native Pacific Education and Culture (INPEACE). Established in 1994, with a mission to improve the quality of life for Native Hawaiians, INPEACE utilizes a holistic community approach. Like our kūpuna before us, we seek to embrace the entire community by offering FREE and relevant educational programs to individuals and families residing in West O‘ahu, Kaua‘i, Moloka‘i, and East Hawai‘i Island.

Leadership

INPEACE leadership is composed of two guiding forces:

Our founders, who took their combined knowledge and experience working with Native Hawaiian children in the education system and created INPEACE to provide better resources and programs to those in need. Their values and optimism are woven into our culture and remain at the core of our mission.

Our Board of Directors who work tirelessly to guide INPEACE toward its mission, creating actionable benchmarks and providing key support for our goals. Their efforts continue to move INPEACE in a positive direction.
