Here Are 8 Things You Might Not Have Known About The Hawaiian Language

The Hawaiian Islands are unique in more ways than any single person could count and that includes our language, vocabulary, and local diction. Most people from Hawaii don’t exclusively speak Hawaiian — except those who call Niihau home — and though there are a variety of words and phrases from the Hawaiian language that are still frequently used today, not everyone knows these 8 facts about this beautiful language, especially tourists or those who have recently moved to the islands. 

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
