Paio Kālaimanaʻo: Hawaiian Language College's 2nd Teach-In from Oiwi TV on Vimeo.

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s Ka Haka ʻUla o Keʻelikōlani College of Hawaiian Language held a second all-class teach-in aimed at raising awareness around the issues surrounding Maunakea.

The art of debate was brought up by the college as an important skill when facing current Hawaiian struggles. UH Hilo Lecturer Aolani Kaʻilihou’s fall seminar focused on studying traditional to modern Hawaiian forms of debate.

At the November 2 teach-in, the students participated in two mock debates with professors from the college. Using the Hawaiian language in a context of debate opened up perspectives of how the College of Hawaiian Language could grow and continue to be relevant to current issues surrounding the local community.

Teach-in participants also took part in many mini-workshops at the all-day forum.
