This qualitative study or mo’olelo navigates the educational and professional trajectories of six Native Hawaiian, Kanaka Maoli, Kanaka ‘Ōiwi, and Hawaiian staff and faculty members at 4-year institutions. Through this voyage, we used Kanaka ‘Ōiwi Critical Race Theory as our Hokupa’a . With this Kanaka framework, we are able to understand the how cultural identity affects the decision to pursue a career in higher education; through a Kanaka lens. Most importantly, this mo’olelo contributes to Kanaka scholarship and creates a platform for future Hawaiian and Pacific Islander research—by Hawaiian and Pacific Islander scholars.
