VOLUNTEERS TO HELP RECORD news stories from images of Hawaiian language newspaper pages dating back into the 1800s are needed. The project aims to use a body of knowledge in Hawaiian language newspapers to update the history of Hawai`i, since most history books were written without using this resource. Hawaiians were a very literate culture in the 1800s, with newspapers sprouting up across the islands, written in the native language. Hawaiian language papers were published from 1834 to 1949.
|Studying Hawaiian language newspapers is changing the |
way history of the Islands is understood and written.
The host of the project is Awaialu: Perpetuating Past to Present. The project is `Ike Ku`oko`a, Liberating Knowledge. It was presented by Hawaiian language expert, Dr. Puakea Nogelmeier, and project outreach manager Kau`i Sai-Dudoit last night in Volcano at After Dark in the Park. To help out, see www.awaiaulu.org.
