Kumulipo is the Hawaiian creation story. From the first atoms of matter formed in darkness to the most complex life forms of land, air, and sea, this 2,000 line chant recounts the birth of all living things in Hawaiʻi.  Long before the time of Charles Darwin the Hawaiian people possessed an intricate understanding of how life on Earth progressed through the ages, realizing our relationship to each and every aspect of our environment.

This video follows the journey of creating educational materials based in Kumulipo with the purpose of strengthening the identity of Hawaiian children.
