“He Puko’a e kani ai ka ‘Aina” -
“A grain of coral eventually grows into land.”
A more figurative interpretation is “A Coral head calling out to the Land;” coral being the first child of the male and female primordial essence and the beginning of life in the Hawaiian cosmogony.
The UH- System Wide Native Hawaiian Council was named Püko’a for the above ÿÖlelo Noÿeau, or ancestral proverb, to describe our work at the University of Hawai’i.
Another shorter version of that proverb is, “Püko’a Kani ÿÄina: A Hard Rock of the Land.” Said of a strong fighter who overcomes opposition but is himself impossible to overcome.
Püko'a's membership is open to the faculty and staff of the University of Hawai'i system's Native Hawaiian serving programs, and to Native Hawaiians who teach or on staff in other university programs and departments. The membership meets twice each year.
Püko'a has no elected officers and reaches decisions on policies and recommendations through its executive council, which meets every other month.
The membership of each campus elects two representatives to the Püko'a Executive Council, providing equal representation for each campus, whether it is a community college or four-year university.
All members can attend executive council meetings, but only the elected representatives or their proxies can vote. The executive council approves motions and policies in the traditional Hawaiian way, by consensus.

In partnership with UH
UNIVERSITY OF HAWAI’I BOARD OF REGENTS ADOPT THE FOLLOWING POLICIES:
An increase of Native Hawaiian participation will benefit the University of Hawai'i by developing a resource that has not been fully utilized. This untapped resource will provide the University and the State with individuals who will contribute to the development and leadership of the State and the Nation. While many Native Hawaiian students are not assessed by their secondary schools to have high potential, they do exceptionally well when appropriate program and curriculum changes and support are provided. This policy will assist in raising the educational status of Native Hawaiians who are under-represented throughout the University of Hawai'i. March 28, 2002
