Telling Our Story

In 2018 we were offered the opportunity to work with a talented digital media group and tell the Manaiakalani story.  We appreciated their patience as they worked with us (herding cats!) to design the story and then capture it on video.
The seven minute version is well worth watching right through if you want to understand Manaiakalani.  We have appreciated the feedback from groups who have used this video with various audiences and report that it does a great ‘sense-making’ job for us.

These shorter vignettes are cropped to tell specific elements of our story for a variety of purposes.

  1. These are wonderful snippets that could be very useful in my facilitation. They have reinforced my understanding of Manaiakalani and the amazing impact it has on the learners. Thanks for sharing (especially Aireen's laugh - it's so great to see teachers and students enjoying school).

    1. Glad they are helpful Nicola. Aireen and her kids have so much fun. Check out some of her film festival movies too.
