Eō e Halena ē! I mua!
I am not of Hawaiian ancestry per se, however, I was born and raised in Honolulu, all my education is from Hawaiian schools, it would be a shame that the Hawaiian language and culture would somehow die out. I loved learning to speak Hawaiian and play the ukulele when I was little and of course the food. I don't live in Hawaii anymore, but it will always be home.
Michelle, I want you to produce your birth certificate! LOL..
Hawaiian Culture is Hawaiian Lanquaqe to preserve, perpetuate, educate is Hawaiian Lanquaqe its our first lanquaqe. Its our ancestoral lanquaqe more then official lanquaqe.
Mahalo uncle. So much mana`o. Ai, `Olelo ke pu`uwai.
Why would anyone try to do this? I was born & raised in Hawaii is also part hawaiian. No matter what happens the Hawaiian Culture will be kept alive.
Why do you ask WHY WOULD ANYONE TRY TO DO THIS? To put on
To be recognized as a separate culture from the American culture that it shares its statehood with. Hawai'ian culture and language must be recognized by the world as its own culture having its own traditions, not just assumed, but federally, and worldwide recognition!
Did you know that Bank of Hawaii will add Hawaiian Language to their Bank Machines.
I'd love to hear my grandchildren and their children 'Olelo Hawai'i like they're singing! Our Hawaiian Language is so awesome. yet the outsiders wanna put a stopper on it...I ask, why stomp the language? In other words, Why stomp what's not yours? In fact, I wish they'll install Hawaiian Language in all Bank of Hawaii Machines as one wahine stated, that would be awesome!
e ola e na olelo o hawai'i,
I love all Hawaiians no matter I havent met before.
I'm not Hawaiian but have a lot of Hawaiian best friends. I might move to Hawaii. I respect the Hawaiian language and culture. I love their beautiful words and environment. Just please leave them alone like an Americans. Why don't they ban Spanish and must speak ENGLISH. Its same thing. I <3 Hawaii FOREVER!!!
800 to 7,000 Languages spoke around the World; USA chose English Primary.
Aloha, It seems only natural that the Hawaiian language should be the formost part of the host culture to the whole world––who would want it to be otherwise?
