A new exhibit opens this weekend on Pidgin, Hawaii’s creole language.

The exhibit titled, “Pidgin: How was, how stay,” is to feature an illustrated timeline that connects history and the development of Pidgin English and Hawaii Creole.

The exhibit is to also feature audiovisual samples of plantation era and contemporary Pidgin.

The opening day event on Saturday at the Hawaii Plantation Village in Waipahu is to include screenings of documentary films in Pidgin, activities about Pidgin and local food.

The free event is sponsored by the Charlene J. Sato Center for Pidgin, Creole and Dialect Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and the Hawaii Council for the Humanities.
