mahalo nui loa e kumu 'alika for sharing this article. i finally had time to read through it and it touched me deeply as i am learning hawaiian language to teach my son. even though i am not native hawaiian and not living in hawaii, i feel very deeply the importance to share with my son his hawaiian culture through his language. i'm not sure where our path will take us and if we will ever return to hawaii, but i want him to know he can be hawaiian in his heart and through his words. he will know who he is through his language.
na Kumu ?Alika
P.S. A visual representation of said motto will be posted online shortly. Will let everyone know when it is posted.
