Greetings and Aloha!

This is a short summary to explain the purpose for which this curriculum was developed and to provide Hawaiian language resources to those who desire to utilize this curriculum.

It is crucial for the general public to know that the Hawaiian language nearly died. In 1896, act 56 section 30 was established. The law mandated Hawaiian language be prohibited in schools and made English the only medium of instruction in Hawaiʻi. Hawaiian language speakers were reprimanded during this time and due to these actions the number of Hawaiian language speakers dwindled.

Therefore, these lessons have been developed with the aim to revitalize the Hawaiian language for this generation and the next generations to come.

In general this resource is designed to support the Hawaiian Language Immersion Program and the Hawaiian language community at-large.

The intent is to engage and enrich students to know the value and sacredness of these lands here in Hawaiʻi.

With the love for our land,
