Ka Leo ʻŌiwi – Episode 4

Ka Leo ʻŌiwi – Episode 4

Welcome to the fourth episode of Ka Leo ʻŌiwi, the newest Hawaiian language learning series. Join again with Hina, Pōmaikaʻi, and ʻIwalani as they practice ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, go on a huakaʻi, and kanikapila with some of our favorite musicians! As you continue these lessons, youʻll start to notice how our ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi is all around us.

This fourth episode includes an overview of what was learned in our previous episodes as well as an introduction a new Pepeke called the Pepeke ʻAike He and ʻAike ʻO. By using these new pepeke, we learn how important names are as well as the way we address certain people and places. This episode introduces the lohe-ʻoni-walaʻau style of learning; where we get more interactive with our lessons. We finally then meet up with our musical guest, Manu Boyd, who shares with us a couple of wonderful Hawaiian songs that relate to the importance of names in the Hawaiian culture.

Many of the lessons covered in Ka Leo ʻŌiwi are included in Nā Kai ʻEwalu, by Kauanoe Kamanā and Pila Wilson. To order a copy of the book, visit Hale Kuamoʻo.

Ka Leo ʻŌiwi provides a foundation in the Hawaiian language through engagement, interaction, and making the learner a part of the lesson through lohe (hear), ʻoni (act), and walaʻau (speak). Additionally, the individual learner sets the pace. If you missed a lesson, watch the episode again at your convenience on ʻŌiwiTV.

    Aloha. O Vaihiria Bush ko’u inoa. I live on Oahu in Waimanalo. I like you guys channel because people can learn about there history of the old Hawaii and learning their olelo. Mahalo for making this kind of websites because without this I wouldn’t learn how to learn pidgin, kahako’s, sentence structure, and introductions.

    I really enjoy these videos. If you could add ōlelo Hawai’i subtitles to what they are saying I feel like that would be super helpful. Seeing the words as they are spoken would make it easier to learn the spelling and pronunciations.
