Kaipuleohone is the University of Hawai'i's digital ethnographic archive for audio and video recordings as well as notes, dictionaries, transcriptions, and other materials related to small and endangered languages.
Kaipuleohone means a 'gourd of sweet words' and represents the notion of a collection of language material that would otherwise be unlocatable in personal collections.
We accept materials from University of Hawai’i affiliates, and from anyone else with materials on languages from the Pacific or Asia. We accept born-digital items and can digitize analog materials like reel-to-reel and cassette recordings, images, and fieldnotes.
