February is ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi month in Hawaiʻi, and so tonight's show celebrates the language of this land that was lost to so many of us. Tonight's show features excerpts from the Ka Leo Hawaiʻi radio program that aired from 1972 to the early 90s featuring interviews between the host, Larry Kauanoe Kimura, and a number of native speakers, which are available to listen on online at Kani ʻĀina.
