This is a major milestone in the Hawaiian Language revitalization movement for our whole lāhui and here in our community. Some fun (& safe) ways to celebrate are being planned to showcase the foundation on which the school was built all the way to the present. We are asking anyone who has been a part of this great school to please share pictures which will go into a video to commemorate these 25 years. Please send pictures to leialoha.k@nawahi.org. If you would like to share a video of a fond memory or favorite story, we would love to have it to put into the video and/or post on Facebook or Instagram. Please send videos or inquiries to maluhia@ahapunanaleo.org or you can send a direct message on the Punana Leo O Waimea Facebook. Stay tuned for more details on the 25 year celebration. E Ola Ka ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi!
