Nui ka 'i'ini o nā kānaka he lehulehu ma Hawai'i nei e ho'okomo i kekahi 'ōlelo Hawai'i i loko o kā lākou 'ōlelo haole, e la'a me nā hua'ōlelo 'o "aloha" a me "mahalo". Ho'ā'o lākou e ho'opuka i ka 'ōlelo 'ōiwi o nei pae'āina, akā, 'o kekahi mau hua'ōlelo wale nō ka mea i pa'a. He maika'i nō ka mana'o.
