E lawe i ke a‘o a mālama, a e ‘oi mau ka na‘auao.
He who takes his teachings and applies them increases his knowledge. (Pukui 1983:40)
The Hawaiian proverb, "E lawe i ke a‘o a mālama, a e ‘oi mau ka na‘auao" reminds us of the importance of applied learning and sharing our knowledge and experience with the broader community. Disseminating knowledge to our communities is key, and not just in the forms of scientific reports and scholarly articles, but in ways that are meaningful and useful to them. This sharing of knowledge and agency is critical. It strengthens relationships within and across communities and empowers them to better steward of the lands they come from and care for.
