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.

Implementation on our part starts in the home. Like our brothers and sisters of the world who facilitate their culture and language in their homes, are physical facts that this type of identity can be achieved. A wise man told me that anything is capable but we have to be a disease and infect others through education and grass roots ideas so that awareness can grow...There are a lot of traditionalist out there and our culture and language is making a strong push but we are far from the recognition that I believe is deserved...Totally supportive of this plight...E iho ana o luna. E iho ana o lalo. E hui ana na moku. E ku ana ka paia...That which is above shall be brought down. That which is below shall be lifted up. The islands shall be united. The walls shall stand upright...

The Hawaiian language has hidden and spiritual meanings... It's not just a form communication, it's an exchange of mana, feeling and aloha within the ohana.
