Many teachers and students of Ōlelo Hawaiʻi make regular use of Pidgin in the classroom. In addition, residents of the state often comment on the similarities between Pidgin and Hawaiian grammar. Scholars of Ōlelo Hawaiʻi point out the importance of understanding Pidgin and Pidgin Hawaiian in researching Ōlelo Hawaiʻi. And, scholars and members of the community regularly note a strong connection between speaking Pidgin and identities that are rooted in Hawaiʻi. This talk story conference invites conversations about these topics and more.

Featuring talks by:

Dr. Jason (Iota) Cabral, Ka Haka ʻUla o Keʻelikōlani College of Hawaiian Language, UH-Hilo
Dr. Laiana Wong, Dr. Kekeha Solis, Kawaihuelani Center for Hawaiian Language, UH- Mānoa
