I am Maluhia OʻDonnell, Site Co-ordinator of the Pūnana Leo o Waimea.  I was born and raised in Missouri, however my mom and generations before are from Kauaʻi.  I have lived in Waimea for 12 years and I started in this position 11 years ago.  I first became a part of the program as a volunteer to strengthen my ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi and then became the Kahu later on since the position was open and I have over 20 years experience working in Early Childhood.  I enjoy working with the kids, parents, and staff.  It is a lot of work but I stay focused on our vision that the Hawaiian language shall live for the benefit of our people, our language, and our traditional knowledge.  I have one cherished daughter, she graduated from Pūnana Leo o Waimea and is now in the 9th grade.
