‘Today is a nice day…’ in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i
Posted: February 17, 2021
In honor of Mahina ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian Language Month) KS Kapālama high schoolers Kuʻualohanani Cardejon and Healani Freitas teach us the phrase “He lā maika‘i kēia” (Today is a nice day). This and other ʻŌlelokīkēkē o ka Lā (Phrase of the Day) videos were part of Mahina ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi activities coordinated by Midkiff Learning Center librarians Laʻakea Cumberlander and Ku‘ulei Reyes with generous kōkua from Kumu ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i Kahanu Solatorio, Video Production Kumu Leah Kihara and Advanced Digital Media student Kylen Asinsin who oversaw the project from conceptualizing to completion. This video supports KS’ efforts to normalize ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi so our native language can live on.
