SEA Currents: culture
Oahu, Maui, & Lanai
Hello Family and Friends of Aloha ‘Aina – a collaborative study abroad program with Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) and Sea Education Association (SEA).
After a brief, yet influential and important week of classes at Hawaii Loa campus on the island of Oahu the students have now started to explore the islands of Maui and Lanai. As we did on Oahu, the students are experiencing and learning about the history, culture, traditional practice and science of the Hawaiian Islands and wrestling with complex issues of conservation and resource management in an era of multiple stakeholders and competing, economic and cultural incentives.
