Dear Readers, 

Welcome to our page featuring blog posts for He Aupuni Palapala: Preserving and Digitizing the Hawaiian Language NewspapersThis will be a place where we talk about the history of the Hawaiian language newspapers, share images, throw in some newspaper trivia, and keep you updated on the progress of the project. For our inaugural post, we take you back a few weeks ago to an interview between Kamaka Pili of KHONNews and Kauʻi Sai-Dudoit, our He Aupuni Palapala Project Manager.

    This is a work of great value! Mahalo! Would you agree to allowing readers to post/share comments on your nūpepa stories with the community of readers? We have no space like this on the internet where ʻolelo Hawaiʻi speakers/ readers can share and comment their manaʻo.
