Mokuola Honua , the Hawai’i-based Global Center for Indigenous Language Excellence, cultivates relationships towards the goal of bringing back the prominence of indigenous perspectives in modern contexts from a foundation of language fluency.
Mokuola Honua will be hosting its second symposium at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hio’s Hawaiian Langauge College at the end of the UN-declared International Year of Indigenous Languages. The first symposium engaged representatives from over 25 indigenous communities from around the globe in discourse around the application and impact of indigenous language on policy, education and media. The second symposium will build on the momentum created with the first.
