Song Purpose

To help people learn the name and important aspects of Papahānaumokuākea, the Northwest Hawaiian Islands and surrounding ocean area recently dedicated as a Marine National Monument.


The name acknowledges the union of the Hawaiian entities Papa (Earth mother) and Wākea (sky father) who birthed the Hawaiian Islands.


The name is somewhat long and takes effort to remember, especially for people who don't speak Hawaiian. The initial goal of this song project is to help people to learn and remember the name after hearing the song for the first time.


We can help make it easy to learn and remember with a catchy song. The song is geared for children but meant for adults as well.


A coloring book can illustrate the information with the song as its text. The song and coloring book text can be written in English and ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i (Hawaiian Language).
