The Hawaiian Language newspapers, nā nūpepa ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, are an immensely rich resource for those studying Hawaiian language sources. Spanning over a hundred years, readers get an understanding for the different styles and forms written Hawaiian may take. Newspapers were not only a site for news, but also chants, laments, announcements, letter from readers both in Hawai'ʻi and abroad; intellectual debates, moʻolelo, and so much more.
