What is Ipukukui?  

Ka ipukukui pio ‘ole, “The light that will not go out” 

Ipukukui is a week-long day program that keeps the fires of knowledge burning throughout the year.  Programs are regional, with each focusing on the waiwai (value, richness) of their own home districts.  Fall programs take place during the October DOE Intercession, while spring programs are held during the Spring Break in March.  Keiki who have attended the most recent summer program will automatically be invited to their home district’s Ipukukui program.   We currently sponsor Ipukukui programs in the following regions: 

  • Puna, Hawai‘i
  • Kona, Hawai‘i
  • Maui
  • Moloka‘i
  • Ko‘olau, O‘ahu
  • Kona, O‘ahu (Honolulu)
  • O‘ahu Waena (previously known as Central)
  • ‘Ewa, O‘ahu (previously known as Leeward)
  • Wai‘anae, O‘ahu
  • Kaua‘i

Check back after August for the dates of our next Ipukukui program.
