About Us

E Ola Ka ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi
The Hawaiian Language Shall Live

In 1983, ʻAha Pūnana Leo was created as a grassroots effort with the sole purpose of reviving ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi. Now, ʻAha Pūnana Leo serves as a local, national and international model for language revitalization. Over the past several decades, ʻAha Pūnana Leo established and built numerous programs throughout the islands, helped to lift a 90-year ban on teaching Hawaiian in public and private schools, advocated for other indigenous people and raised awareness about the consequences of the loss of indigenous languages.


He hualono kēia no ke kākoʻo ʻana i ka makua Pūnana Leo i ola ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi ma ka ʻohana.

It’s purpose is to assist families in gaining knowledge and support for one another to create and reinforce a continuum between the home and the Pūnana Leo.

‘Oka mauli, ua like maoli nö ia me ke ahi e ÿä ana i loko o käkou, a ke pio ÿo ia, pio pü ke ola o ko käkou Hawaiÿi ÿana.
