The University of Hawaiʻi continues to commemorate Mahina ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi or Hawaiian Language Month every February which was first established in 2013 after Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed Act 28 in an effort to uplift and strengthen Hawaiʻi’s native language.

A wide array of workshops, classes and events ranging from yoga to mele (songs) and swing dancing will be hosted by various UH faculty, staff and students throughout the month to highly encourage the use of Hawaiian language.

“Mahina ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi is a time for our community to pause, reflect and assess where we are and where we are going,” said Malia Nobrega, director of strategic partnerships at UH Mānoa Hawaiʻinuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge. “We celebrate our successes and progress and we fortify ourselves to normalize and strengthen Hawaiian language for all the generations to come.”
