ʻʻIt is my greatest

hope that the Hawaiian language of our ancestors once more flourishes on the Hawaiian Islands and continues to reach out, embrace, and join hands with those abroad. The online classes at Niuolahiki are an integral part of connecting those of Hawaiian ancestry and others who are connected to Hawaiʻi through their aloha, to the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people - their beloved language. E ola ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi! The Hawaiian language shall live!” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻLearning Hawaiian

in a structured manner is the biggest plus of this program - this makes the whys of the language very transparent, and therefore makes it easier to apply.” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻLiving on the

U.S. continent, there are few opportunities for studying Hawaiian. These courses helped give me a foundation and the beginning of understanding the language and the culture. Excellent way to deepen one's appreciation for hula and Hawaiian music. Mahalo nunui!” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻMahalo nui loa

for all your dedication to ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi and to the preservation of the unique and beautiful Hawaiian culture. E ola ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi! The Hawaiian language shall live!” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻMy kumu and several

of my hula brothers and sisters are taking the classes and they are thoroughly enjoying them! One hula sister says it has really helped her understand the mele and oli we learn, and helps her appreciate our dancing even more. Mahalo.” -Mary D., Napa, CA., Niuolahiki Self-directed Student

ʻʻNiuolahiki

keeps me on track and making progress in a way that fits into my schedule.” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻNiuolahiki is

an exceptional program! It's so exciting to be able to learn ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi with such great resources and teachers. I have learned so much and am so grateful for a program like this!” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻStudying a language

alone is very challenging and a lack of learning materials for Hawaiian means that it is easy to soon give up. The distance learning program is much more than an online textbook with writing and listening exercises. It is the ideal situation of a living community of teachers and classmates who help push each other along in learning Hawaiian. If you soon give up or think you will never learn the language, give this community a try! I am here to stay!” -ʻAnalū C., Fukuoka, Japan, Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻThe classes are

stimulating. I especially appreciate the clarity of the speakers. I am hearing impaired but I have no problems understanding the spoken words. The speakers are very articulate in their enunciation of each word.” -Niuolahiki Self-directed Student
