Uniquely

Mānoa

The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa is as unique as the place we are named for. In traditional times, Mānoa valley was expertly cared for and cultivated by Native Hawaiians. In return, it provided an abundance of sustenance and protection for its residents. Today, Mānoa continues to furnish the resources that enable our institution to be a thriving land-, sea-, and space- grant university. In keeping with the Native Hawaiian manner of reciprocity, these blessings are passed on to you in the form of academic excellence so that you are equipped to take care of yourself, humanity, Hawaiʻi, and the world.

11


THE STORY OF MANOA There are many legends associated with Mānoa, with one being the moʻolelo (story) of Kahalaopuna. She was born to Kauakuahine, the rain of Mānoa, and Kahaukani, the wind of Mānoa. Today, we see Kahalaopuna as the beautiful rainbow that appears throughout Mānoa Valley.

RAINBOW WARRIORS The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa athletic teams (Rainbow Warrior Mens and Rainbow Wahine Womens) are named for the rainbows which are commonly seen in Mānoa Valley. The logo pictured is the original logo for the University of Hawaiʻi Athletics Department from 1982-2000.

A 194-acre botanical garden located in upper Mānoa Valley, Lyon Arboretum is home to over 5,000 species of tropical plants and ranked in the top ten list of 50 best university gardens in the United States. A resource for both the University and our community.

Did you know?

Native Hawaiians lived in Hawai‘i for over one hundred generations with various island kingdoms. In 1810, Kamehameha I united all the islands under a single Hawaiian Kingdom.

‘Iolani Palace is the only royal palace in the U.S. and had electricity five years before the White House, and 17 years before Buckingham Palace. Duke Kahanamoku was a Kanaka Maoli (native Hawaiian) and a five-time Olympic medalist in swimming. He was also the world’s best known surfer, and set the standards of modern day surfing. O‘ahu was divided into six moku (districts). Moku were used to govern the management of underground water resources: • Ko‘olaupoko • Kona • ‘Ewa • Wai‘anae • Waialua • Ko‘olauloa Each moku was divided into ahupua‘a (wedge shaped land division extending from mountain to sea), a total of 80 on O‘ahu. The moku and ahupua‘a system were designed for the most efficient food sustainability and land management. There are two mountain ranges on O‘ahu: • Ko‘olau • Wai‘anae Mountains Mountains

Hawai‘i Island

Flag of Hawai‘i The eight stripes on the Hawaiian flag represents the eight Hawaiian islands.

THE STATE OF HAWAI‘I HAS TWO OFFICIAL LANGUAGES:

Hawaiian & English

‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i experienced a dramatic decline in the 20th century due to an English-only policy for all schools in Hawai‘i. Today, Hawaiian is recognized as an official language and the number of those who can speak Hawaiian has grown steadily in homes and in schools.

HAWAIIAN ALPHABET: There are only 13 letters in the Hawaiian alphabet:

' Aloha Aina

The natural landscape and beauty of Hawaiʻi has a way of drawing you in. Nature is not only our backdrop, but a place that gives us a sense of purpose and duty. Aloha ‘Aina which means, “Love of the land,” is a central idea of the Hawaiian culture and one of the most valuable lessons you’ll learn in Hawaiʻi. It is the belief that if you love and care for the land, it will care for you. Take time to enjoy and experience our islands, and remember that Aloha ‘Aina is not only a way of thinking, but a way of life.

Attending UH Mānoa has helped me to stay connected to the ocean and nature by getting an amazing education while still enjoying the ocean just a few miles away. I love living in Hawai'i because it's the only place in the world that I can experience crystal clear waters, amazing waterfalls, city life, and a variety of spectacular people." NOLAN OMURA
