What's new on our site today!
Hawaiian is not actually a Native American language; Hawaiians are Polynesians, not American Indians, and Hawaii is
only considered part of North America for political reasons (geographically the islands lie closer to Asia). However, because
the Hawaiian language faces the same political and cultural challenges as other indigenous languages of the United States, we have
included some Hawaiian language preservation resources here:
Our list of vocabulary words in the Hawaiian language.
'Aha Pūnana Leo
Organization dedicated to Hawaiian language preservation.
Hawaiian language lessons and other resources, also lots of Hawaiian cultural materials.
A great collection of Hawaiian-language stories, articles, and other resources.
