ALOHA FAMILY & FRIENDS: If you all know me most intimately; my love for God and Christ Jesus will always be my #1; then OHANA & FRIENDS and My HAWAIIAN CULTURE. I do truly appreciate when others find the love of HAWAIIAN LANGUAGE and want to "BREATHE HAWAIIAN CULTURE". This legacy lives on no matter who passes it on. God is fluent in HAWAIIAN LANGUAGE; kukakuka ka olelo HAWAII me ke Akua; he will answer! hui hou malama pono.

@Kimokeo. Well said another important point is the need to create an assessment of their learning at these truly unique and innovative educational programs that make a significant contribution to Hawaiʻiʻs educational system.

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!

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!

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.
