Abstract
In regards to the continuation of the Hawaiian language, it was the elders of Hawaii who began a geneology of resistance and this is the reason our mother tongue continues until today. The responsibility of encouraging the native Hawaiians to continue speaking Hawaiian was huge, but our beloved ancestors continued to show pride and support by writing articles in the Hawaiian language newspapers. This paper analyzes these articles written in the time of the colonial arch in Hawaii. Our ancestors stood proudly behind us and our identity so that the next generation can carry on this responsibility.
