Carol Abe has asked me to post the following announcement on the AN List.

An important new journal published by Kamehameha Schools Press in
association with University of Hawai`i Press for ALU LIKE

KA HO`OILINA: Puke Pai `Òlelo Hawai`i / THE LEGACY: Journal of Hawaiian
Language Sources

Founded by Alu Like's Native Hawaiian Library, cosponsored by `Aha Punana
Leo, `Ahahui `Òlelo Hawai`i, the Center for Hawaiian Studies at UH-Manoa, Ka
Haka `Ula o Ke`elikolani (College of Hawaiian Language, UH-Hilo), among
others, and guided by comprehensive editorial and archivist committees, this
unique new resource aims to enhance the use and understanding of the
Hawaiian language by publishing materials from Hawaiian language collections
in Hawai`i.

By the 1850s, Hawaiians were among the most literate people in the world.
For decades they printed many newspapers, books, journals, letters,
government documents, and educational materials in Hawaiian. A large number
of these are stored in various archives in Hawai`i and are often
inaccessible; and in some cases, endangered. Taken together, this written
legacy comprises one of the largest archives of any indigenous nation in the

Each issue of Ka Ho`oilina contains archival materials including: the
Hawaiian Ethnological Notes from Bishop Museum compiled by Mary Kawena
Pukui; government documents; Hawaiian-language newspapers; and cultural
materials such as selected mele (songs and chants). These materials are
first being published in print, and eventually will be available on the
worldwide web <http:..hooilina.olelo.hawaii.edu> and through a compact disc
recording of native Hawaiian speakers. The print version is laid out in four
parallel columns: a copy of the original words of the Legacy piece; an
updated version using modern Hawaiian orthography; an English translation;
and annotations. The electronic version will include search capabilities.

Kalena Silva is professor and director of Ka Haka `Ula o Ke`elikolani
(College of Hawaiian Language) at the University of Hawai`i at Hilo. Janet
Zisk is the archivist for Na Kula `o Kamehameha (Kamehameha Schools).
