Hawaiian Language CollegeThe award was presented to Director Dr. Keiki Kawai`ae`a during the NIEA’s 44th Annual Convention & Tradeshow held earlier this month in Rapid City, South Dakota.

Xietan Kawai Anuhea Dutro, a student fiscal/administrative assistant at Ka Haka `Ula O Ke`elikōlani (KHUOK) College of Hawaiian Language, was honored as Student Employee of the Year. Dutro has worked at the College since 2008 and is an integral part of its preparation and planning for events and activities as well as being the College’s representative on the Merrie Monarch Parade committee.

The Outstanding University Support Employee Award was presented to Shana Kaneshiro whose work as an office assistant in the Financial Aid Office positively affects the 8,200 students applying for financial aid each year. Kaneshiro redesigned all the FAO forms that can now be done online, and each year volunteers for the College Goal Sunday events in Hilo and Kona that help up to 400 students and their families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). She has served as president of the UH clerical support group Nā Laulima, and has been the campus clerical representative on the UH Hilo Chancellor’s Professional Development Committee since 2011.

College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) Program Coordinator Corinne Tamashiro, who began working for the College as a student in 1971, received the Professional Staff Award. A former Interim and Acting Dean, Tamashiro played a significant role in planning and establishing the North Hawai’i Education and Research Center (NHERC) in Honoka`a, and single handedly built UH Hilo’s summer session program into what it is today.

This year’s Taniguchi Excellence & Innovation Award went to Dr. Philippe Binder, professor of physics, and Dr. Ramon Figueroa-Centeno, associate professor of mathematics. Binder and Figueroa-Centeno were recognized for their work on three-dimensional visualization of complex mathematical objects in `Imiloa’s 16-meter state-of-the-art stereoscopic planetarium. Their work offers significant advances in the presentation of complex mathematical data sets, which allow data to be manipulated so that it can be better understood and become a powerful tool in physics and mathematics courses. The first of its kind to be presented in a planetarium environment, the data has been presented at a national level visualization conference and used in university classes.

The event also recognized retirees and employees receiving various years of service awards.

The College of Hawaiian Language Urgently Needs Your Support

Commentary by Asst. Professor of Hawaiian Studies at College of Hawaiian Language, University of Hawai’i at Hilo Keola Donaghy:

Aloha kākou. This legislative session the state legislature is considering a bill which will provide funding for the construction of a new building on the UH-Hilo campus to house Ka Haka ‘Ula O Ke‘elikōlani College of Hawaiian Language. Currently staff and faculty of the college are spread out over three locations on the UHH campus, making it difficult sometimes for students to even locate their teachers. And we have only a single classroom dedicated for our exclusive use; every semester we must compete with other programs for adequate classrooms in which to teach our classes. Well all know the importance of a sense of place in the Hawaiian culture. Well, our students, faculty and staff have no “place” to call our own on the UHH campus.

Below I have listed some of the highlights of our College’s achivements:

  1. Among the fastest growing programs at highly cramped UH-Hilo
  2. The College is highly community service oriented
  3. New building to be at the physical and academic focal point of a future expanded UH-Hilo campus
  4. Academically and culturally tied to highly successful bilingual ‘Imiloa Astronomy Education Center
  5. Hawaiian Language College programs draw numerous national and international visitors
  6. Most developed indigenous language revitalization program in the world
  7. Largest Hawaiian language focused major count in the State
  8. The sole Hawaiian Studies Ph.D. program in the UH System
  9. A national model for immersion at the tertiary level with Hawaiian B.A., M.A., Teacher Certification, and Ph.D. in Indigenous Language and Culture Revitalization
  10. Provides other indigenous peoples with opportunities to enroll through its Linguistics B.A., an Indigenous Education M.A., and the Ph.D.
  11. Partners at the graduate level with University of Arizona, University of Alaska, and University of Waikato (New Zealand)
  12. The only fully operational P-20 educational system in Hawai‘i with the P-12 Hawaiian Immersion Nāwahī Laboratory School that includes early college enrollment
  13. In 2009, Nāwahī School was one of only five schools on Hawai‘i Island with the highest rating under Federal No Child Left Behind legislation
  14. The College’s Hale Kuamo‘o Service Center is the main source of curriculum materials and teacher support for over 2,000 students in P-12 Hawaiian Immersion Statewide
  15. The College’s Ulukau Hawaiian Electronic Library (operated in conjunction with Alu Like, Inc.) is a major resource with Hawaiian dictionaries, archives, etc. Over the past five years, Ulukau has received over 40 million hits from users around the world
  16. The College’s Leokī telecommunications system was the first in the world to provide a completely translated interface and ability to communicate completely in any indigenous language in the world.
  17. The College’s Hale Kuamo’o has worked diligently with technology providers such as Apple Computer, Inc., Google, Netscape Communications and Microsoft to enhance the ability of Hawaiian speakers to utilized advanced technologies. The presence of native support for the Hawaiian language in Apple’s Macintosh operating system, the iPhone and iPad are a direct result of the College’s initiatives.

The bill which will fund construction of our college’s already-designed facility has passed the state House of Representatives and is currently in the Senate’s Ways and Means commitee. We would like to ask for your assistance in contacting members of this committee and express your support for funding. You may send emails, fax or call any of these senators, however, your contact is particularly important if you are a resident of the district that the senator represents. Please feel free to share this communication with your family and friends, and ask them to support us as well. You should also mention the bills by number HR2200 (in the house). Senate companion bill number is SB2765.
