Signers of Hawai'i Collection

Life histories given in sign language; describes development of sign language and Deaf lives in the past. Note: During discussions about the history of HSL and of Deaf people in Hawai`i, signers normally signed in American Sign Language or in a mixed form of American Sign Language and Hawai`i Sign Language. Information about the structure of HSL from these discussions, therefore, cannot be inferred.
