Kauakukalahale

Note: Because most Web browsers are unable to display the kahako (horizontal line, or macron) used to add emphasis to a vowel in written Hawaiian, we have substituted the corresponding vowel with an umlaut (two dots, or dieresis). To view this text as it was meant to be read, you must have a Hawaiian-language font installed on your computer. You can obtain free versions of these fonts from the University of Hawaii-Hilo's Web site, http://www.olelo.hawaii.edu/eng/resources/fonts.html

Some newer Web browsers, (such as Netscape 7 and Internet Explorer 6 on certain operating systems) can display kahako without a Hawaiian-language font, using a specialized coding system called Unicode. To jump to a Unicode version of this column, click here.


Synopsis: The following piece announces itself as a new column written in the Hawaiian Language that will appear every Sunday. This column represents a revival of a long tradition of using the Hawaiian language as a medium for disseminating ideas to the public through various genre. It has been more than 60 years since the Hawaiian language has been featured regularly in a widely circulated newspaper.
