E nā hoa aloha ʻōlelo ʻōiwi mai kahi pae a i kahi pae o ka pae ʻāina, no ka mole ʻolu o Lehua a i Haʻehaʻe, mai lalo lā o nā pua o ka honua a i luna lā o nā manu o ka lewa, ke aloha o ke ao Hawaiʻi iā kākou a pau. He ao nani nō hoʻi ko nā mea a pau e ola ana ma Hawaiʻi a, e like me nā manu o ka lewa, ke ola nei kā kākou ʻōlelo aloha i nā lani, ma luna hoʻi o ka mokulele. I kēlā me kēia mahina Pepeluali, hoʻolālā a mālama ʻia kekahi huakaʻi mokulele ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi i nā ʻāina like ʻole e lele ai ʻo Hawaiian Airlines, ka hui mokulele hoʻokahi nāna i hoʻōia kūhelu i ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi ma ke ʻano he ʻōlelo e uku keu ʻia ai nā kuene mokulele. No ia mau huakaʻi kūikawā, kuene ʻia ka mokulele e ka poʻe ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi a pēlā e mālama ʻia ai ka walaʻau ʻana me ka poʻe ʻōhua a me ka hoʻolaha ʻana ma ka ipu leo mokulele.


Aia nā kuene o Hawaiian ma lalo o ka malu o ka uniona AFA, ʻo ia hoʻi ka Association of Flight Attendants. He uniona kēia e mālama ana i nā kuene he 2,100 a ʻoi iki aʻe o Hawaiian a me nā kuene o kekahi hui mokulele ʻē aʻe e laʻa ʻo Alaska Airlines, Jetblue, United Airlines, a pēlā aku nō. Ma kahi o ka makahiki 2017 i pau ai kā mākou palapala ʻaelike, he palapala e helu papa ana i nā koina a me nā lula like ʻole e hoʻokō ai nā kuene, nā luna, a me ka hui hoʻolālā i ka lele ʻana o ka poʻe hoʻokele mokulele. He ʻekolu makahiki ke kū ʻole ʻana o kekahi palapala ʻaelike hou.


I loko o ia wā nele i ka ʻole o ka palapala ʻaelike hou, koho bālota akula mākou kuene e kūʻē. I ka makahiki 202, ua pōmaikaʻi mākou i ka paʻa ʻana maila o ka palapala ʻaelike hou ma waena o mākou a me nā luna o ka hui mokulele, ma mua pono nō o ka wā i pani ʻia ai nā uapo pae o ka honua holoʻokoʻa ma muli o ka maʻi ahulau. ʻO kekahi ʻōlelo paʻa o kā mākou palapala ʻaelike hou, ʻo ia hoʻi ka hōʻoia ʻana i ka ke kūlana o ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi a me nā kuene i wali iā lākou ka ʻōlelo. ʻO kēia mau kuene “language qualified,” uku hou ʻia no ka mākaukau i ka ʻōlelo Kanaka. ʻ


ʻO ke kuene, inā paʻa iā ia ka ʻōlelo Palani, Kepanī, Kōlea, Pākē, a i ʻole ka ʻōlelo Kāmoa, he mea maʻamau ka hai ʻana aku a me ka uku hou ʻana aku iā ia no ka walewaha o kēia mau ʻōlelo. A, ʻakahi nō a komo ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi i ia huina kūhelu. A kauoha kūhelu ʻia kēlā ʻuku hou e kā mākou palapala ʻaelike. He keʻehina hou nō kēia no ka ʻōlelo a kākou.


He mea minamina naʻe ke kūlana kūikawā o kēia ʻano uku a me kēia ʻano lele ʻana ma ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, ʻoiai ʻaʻole mālama ʻia nā huakaʻi ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi ma waho o Pepeluali. Akā, ʻike ʻia ka pahuhopu, ʻo ia ke kū ʻana o ia mau huakaʻi ma nā mahina he 11 koe o ka makahiki. ʻAʻole ʻo Pepeluali ʻo ka mahina hoʻokahi e hoʻoheno ai a e ola ai nō hoʻi kā kākou ʻōlelo Kanaka aloha. I kēlā me kēia lā e pono ai ko kākou nohona Kanaka i ka ʻōlelo me he kaula ʻaha lā e pili ai ko kākou naʻau i ka naʻau a me ka mauli o ka ʻāina a me nā kūpuna. He lanakila liʻiliʻi naʻe kēia e waiho ai kākou a hahai nā hanauna e puka mai auaneʻi i kēia ao māʻamaʻama. E ola nō ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi ma nā ala a me nā ao a pau loa o ka nohona Kanaka.
