Hawaiian Language Newspaper Initiative Celebrates a Year's Work
Almost a year has passed since a local initiative began transcribing over 60,000 pages of Hawaiian-language newspapers. The project, 'Ike Ku'oko'a, or Liberating Knowledge, takes the digital pictures from historic newspapers and turns them into searchable text. Thanks to a huge community response, 'Ike Ku'oko'a met their goal on time. Project manager Kau’i Sai-Dudoit thanks the 7,000 volunteers who took the time to help.
Puakea Nogelmeier, Executive Director of 'Ike Ku'oko'a, believes education and access are the most important lessons learned from the project.
Supporters of the 'Ike Ku'oko'a initiative are invited to join a picnic on the lawn of Iolani Palace to celebrate the end of a year’s work. The gathering is scheduled for November 28th from 11 am to 1 pm.
