VISTA volunteers assigned to Hawaii in 1968 noticed that it was difficult for the island children to identify with the Dick and Jane textbooks of the mainland, which contained unfamiliar animals, plants, and foods. The VISTA volunteers helped establish the Hawaiian Education Materials Center, staffed with VISTA volunteers and sponsored by the Queen Liliuokalani Trust, to develop educational materials relevant to the life of the Hawaiian child.
