About This Series

This special section is an ongoing collection of news articles and opinion pieces written in Hawaiian to better connect with our Indigenous readers, identify underreported stories and improve our engagement with an underserved community. This is a space for Hawaiian language speakers to read the news in their own language and share perspectives that might otherwise go overlooked.
