Mauliola Keʻehi Kumu Resource Library
As an organization serving predominantly Native Hawaiian learners, it is important for us at Mauliola Keʻehi to gather data in a way that fosters reflection and active listening, builds trust among participants, and allows participants to share their thoughts and experiences in their own words. Over the last couple of years we have developed three tools that encourage haumāna to reflect on their feelings and emotions and to assess how the visit and self-regulation techniques they learned may have affected their wellbeing.
A summary and downloadable templates are available below for our three modes of program assessment. One mode may be more appropriate than the other depending on the size, ability, and age of your class. Our first and second modes are suitable for smaller groups and can be adapted to suit both verbal and non-verbal haumāna. Analysis of data gathered using this method led to the development of the third mode, a pre-post reflection wheel that may be suitable for larger groups.
01. Kilo Kino
Developed from a method we learned from Aunty Puanani Burgess, Kilo Kino helps participants reflect on and describe feelings, emotions, and state of being when they are with us.
In the morning we ask program participants to kilo kino or reflect on their internal weather and at the end of the visit participant share the change in their internal weather. Answers are recorded, transcribed, and analyzed to understand how the program impacts wellbeing.
