The practice of “ho‘oponopono,” or Hawaiian conflict resolution, at Ke Kula ‘o Nāwahīokalani‘opu‘u school grew out of the grassroots efforts to reestablish schools through the Hawaiian language. This research examines the elements of traditional “ho‘oponopono” in the school's “mo‘oki‘ina ho‘oponopono” conflict resolution system. This work includes: 1) a historical overview of the school and the establishment of the “mo‘oki‘ina ho‘oponopono” there; 2) a description of “ho‘oponopono,” including: a) related academic publications, e) a record of ho‘oponopono incidences at the school, and i) an oral history of “ho‘oponopono” in my own family; 3) the theoretical orientation, description, and application of the “mo‘oki‘ina” as found in specific contexts of use at Nāwahīokalani‘ōpu‘u; and 4) a cultural analysis of the “mo‘oki‘ina” at the school, with emphasis on comparing and interpreting data on “ho‘oponopono” in contexts where Hawaiians comprise the majority of the participants, and Hawaiian language, culture, and beliefs predominate.
The study produces a detailed description of: 1) the stages of the “mo‘oki‘ina ho‘oponopono,” 2) examples of the application of “ho‘oponopono” at the school, and 3) common aspects of traditional conflict resolution as used in various contexts. The overall outcome of this study shows that the “mo‘oki‘ina ho‘oponopono” at Ke Kula ‘O Nāwahīokalani‘opu‘u reflects the fundamental principles and contains the essential elements of traditional Hawaiian “ho‘oponopono.”
