The Hawaiian Language Surges: New generations are learning the language at school and home and introducing it into tourism, media, science and beyond.

This is the fifth of Hawaii Business Magazine’s six CHANGE Reports on major issues facing Hawaiʻi.

The CHANGE Reports are based on a framework created by the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation.

“The CHANGE framework acknowledges the interconnected nature of community issues and zeroes in on six essential areas that constitute the overall well-being of these islands and people,” HCF says.
