Honoring our kūpuna

Institute of Hawaiian Language Research and Translation

Nāna i waele mua i ke ala, ma hope aku mākou


Aloha! Welcome to the Institute of Hawaiian Language Research and Translation, a program of the Native Hawaiian Place of Learning Advancement Office at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The institute is committed to generating access to the resources of the Hawaiian language repository for all fields of study. Through this work, we aim to build a community that advances UH Mānoa as a Native Hawaiian Place of Learning–grounded in aloha ʻāina–so that the sustainable practices deeply rooted in Hawaiʻi can be perpetuated for generations to come.

Mai ka puka ʻana a ka lā i Haʻehaʻe a i ka ihona ʻolu i ka mole o Lehua, welina mai ke aloha.
