Just in Hilo.

This past week the kamaaina of the land renowned for the Apaapaa Wind, of Kohala with its hills that move along together, Kalahikiola and Pili, that is John Harbottle, and after some days he returned to his famous lands.

Looking at him, he is still in good health, he has not changed, as if it is still in the days of his youth, when I first met him 27 years ago, when I arrived in his famous aina.

He spent some days with his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Eddie Nelson, of Keaukaha.

Language Matters asks what we lose when languages die and how we can save them. It was filmed around the world: on a remote island off the coast of Australia, where 400 Aboriginal people speak 10 different languages, all at risk; in Wales, where Welsh, once in danger, is today making a comeback; and in Hawaii, where a group of Hawaiian activists is fighting to save the native tongue.

Language Matters is a co-production of David Grubin Productions and Pacific Islanders in Communications. Major funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities with additional funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, the National Endowment for the Arts.
