Akaka Commemorates the Hawaiian Language

Daniel Akaka Commemorates the month of February as the month of the Hawaiian Language.

” I rise today in celebration of the Hawaiian language.  February is designated as the “Month of the Hawaiian Language” by the State of Hawai’i.  Speakers and students of the language use this time to foster and promote Hawaiian through festivals, spelling bees, and speech and debate competitions where the Hawaiian language is the primary medium.”

Please help up revitalize the Hawaiian language as we celebrate not only in this month of February, but for the rest of our lives. E ola mau ka ‘olelo Hawai’i!!
