Hulo! is a fast, fun, and easy way to practice your Hawaiian vocabulary. Whether you know five Hawaiian words or five hundred, you can enjoy learning together as you race to complete your Hawaiian crossword. Hulo! is reminiscent of the look and feel of old Hawaiian nupepa (newspapers). From 1834 to 1948, nearly one hundred different Hawaiian language nupepa published approximately 125,000 pages of news, political dialogue, social commentary, history, cultural practices and literature – both local and foreign. This repository of Hawaiian language and perspectives represents a rich tradition of literacy and treasury for today’s learners. Proceeds from the sale of Hulo! help to support ongoing efforts to digitize Hawaiian newspapers into word-searchable text files available at nupepa.org.
