I am wondering if anyone out there knows the Hawaiian dialect of Hana, Maui?

In the Hana dialect (Eastern Maui dialect), my grandfather told me daily conversation in the Hana dialect sounded like people saying poems to each other. My grandfather also said it is no where near sounding like the Ni'ihau dialect. I am curious of all of the dialects throughout the islands and hoping to bring back the old dialects throughout.

Hawaiian-Language Newspaper Research

There is only a small fraction of newspapers available to search on the internet, so we still have to browse through the microfilms. Since we often have similar research interests, a place for sharing manao, articles and citations might be helpful.

ALOHA Kaua, e Jonah, Any chance that you'll be able to make it to La Ho'iho'i Ea Celebration at Thomas Square on July 31? There I'll have Flags of our Kingdom for sale, including the Kalakaua Dynasty Flag. Long Live The Hawaiian Kingdom, o Pomai

ALOHA Kaua, e Jonah, Mahalo nui no kou mana'i i'o. I don't speak Hawaiian fluently so I'm going to have to translate your Full mana'o that you sent me. I'll have Kekapukainohea do his homework and translate for me. I have a general idea of what you shared with us.
Long Live The Hawaiian Kingdom, o Pomai
