In this chapter, the author reflects on her journey to kuleana through Hawaiian place-based education. She begins by telling the moʻolelo or history about one of the most beloved aliʻi nui of Hawaiʻi, ʻEmalani Kaleleonālani Naea Rooke, and her empowering journey to the summit of the highest mountain in Hawaiʻi and the entire Pacific: Maunakea or Mauna a Wākea. The author highlights the ways in which this mele by Queen Emma served as a significant theoretical framework for her doctoral research on Hawaiian place-based education programs. She explains how Queen Emma's mele and moʻolelo ultimately helped her to see her hālau hula as her first experience with Hawaiian place-based education.
