A radio project that has roots dating back to the 1960s and the beginning of the Hawaiian Renaissance is making its way to the public thanks to Larry Kimura, the internationally renowned “grandfather” of Hawaiian language revitalization.

Kimura, an associate professor of Hawaiian language and Hawaiian studies at Ka Haka ʻUla O Keʻelikōlani, the College of Hawaiian Language and colleagues are currently working on a project to provide online access to recording of his radio show, Ka Leo Hawaiʻi, that featured Native Hawaiian speakers. The program started in 1972 and continued for 16 years of broadcasts.

The digitized recordings are being uploaded to Ulukau.org, an electronic library hosted by the Hawaiian language college that offers the public free access to books, newspapers, genealogies and a variety of other Hawaiian language media.  The Ulukau website will eventually showcase an audio library of 417 recordings from the Ka Leo Hawaiʻi broadcasts.

Ka Leo Hawaiʻi documents some of Hawaiʻi’s last fluent Native Hawaiian speakers who descended from an unbroken heritage of Hawaiian language as it was traditionally passed down from one generation to the next.
