  • For my interest.
  • I'm inspired by the Disney movie Lilo and Stitch, which contains some Hawaiian language.
  • My country is USA.
  • To be connected with Hawaiians in case I meet one of them someday.

It's such a pretty language! I don't want to see it die so I figured even if one person learns it, it'll make a difference

I enjoy learning Latin-based languages predominantly, but non-Latin based ones always throw me through a loop so it's very interesting!

I have raced outrigger canoes for over a decade (Wa'a/Va'a/Waka ama as they are known). Over the course of the years, I've fallen in love with the Hawaiian culture as well as other Polynesian cultures. So for this Haole, learning the language is one way I can pay may respects to a culture I hold so dear.

To be honest I have two reasons. One is that it is a interesting language different from the ones I know. Also, one of my favorite movies is Lilo and Stitch.
