Nā Nūpepa Kahiko: Hawaiian Newspapers of the 1800s

This section contains readings and audio files of selected articles, letters, and stories from the Hawaiian language newspapers of the 1800s and early 1900s. There are so many wonderful and fascinating articles to be found in the old newspapers; I want to share them with you so you can learn interesting facts and hear interesting stories while you are practicing your reading and listening skills.

I wish to have translations available in this section as well, with broad-based grammar breakdowns for each article, but as this will take a lot of time to create, I will wait until I at least get a few audio and PDF files up in this section for you to start to play with!

Each article contains both text and audio files broken down for beginner, intermediate, and advanced readers.

Be sure to download the audio files and put them on your iPod, iPhone, iPad, or other similar device so you can listen to it whenever and wherever you please!
