In this chapter, the author shares her experiences in navigating her doctoral research in building places of Hawaiian learning through her interviews with eight female educators at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. She highlights her own struggle with the cultural dissonance of being a Native Hawaiian scholar grounded in Hawaiian culture pursuing a Hawaiian-focused research topic in a predominantly non–Native Hawaiian institution. She also discusses her process as she develops a framework around moʻolelo and the metaphor of the ʻaʻaliʻi (Dodonaea, a native shrub) to understand and analyze her informants' leadership experiences through ʻōlelo noʻeau, mele, and oli. The author reflects on the lessons she learned as a Native Hawaiian researcher in the academy by engaging in moʻolelo as methodology and how she used those lessons to learn about transformation: transforming campus cultures and transformative leadership.

Keywords:   Hawaiian learning, University of Hawaiʻi at M>ānoa, moʻolelo, ʻaʻaliʻi, ʻōlelo noʻeau, mele, oli, campus culture, transformative leadership
