    My cousin just referred me to this site. I teach Hawaiian history to a circle of my ohana because I want them to know our true history. I have studied the Kumulipo for many years and still have so much to learn …. the voice of our ancestors is buried deep in the sounds and in the words of the Kumkulipo. I live in California and was born in Hawaii before it became a State. I also believe that since there are more Native Hawaiians living off island now and many in California and Nevada, we need to have a more focused Hawaiian Studies Program which belongs more appropriately with Native Hawaiian Studies and not under Asian Studies (where there is no focus given). I look forward to listening to your episodes on ancestral knowledge. He Havai’i Au, fay pohaikawahine
