First Nations’ Futures Program is a world-class fellowship program that focuses on community building.

The Fellows of the 2011 First Nations’ Futures Program produced this short documentary as part of their place-based case study project focused on “growing the next generation of farmers.” Through their travels across the State of Hawaiʻi and interactions with farmers, distributors, educators, and policy makers, the Fellows were compelled to produce this video to educate as a means to motivate the general public. The Fellows understand that change is not going to happen overnight but in producing this video they hope to stimulate thought and move the public conversation in the direction of a more sustainable Hawaiʻi.

First Nations’ Futures, supported by the Kamehameha Schools, is a world-class fellowship program that focuses on community building through leadership development. The one-year program includes academic instruction at Stanford University’s Woods Institute for the Environment, a two-week Hawaiian leadership ʻaha, and culminates with an intensive place-based research project involving land and resource-based issues.
