Hawai‘i (Hawaiian)
HK – Ka Leo is Hawaiian for “The Voice”. It is our Schools paper here at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa . Here is a newpaper box that students can grab paper from on the way to and from Campus Center. This is ment for the students here in UH Mānoa but I think only a few students here know what Ka Leo means. I think a lot of people is just aware of it rather then the definition which is “The Voice” and it stands perfectly what a newspaper is. Multilingual Hawaiʻi

HK – There is Hawaiian in this but in a Pidgin Format. Although The Bus isnʻt pidgin the way they say can be considered Pidgin. “Aloha the bus” can be defined as “Love the bus.” This is a bus stop bench in fron of Gateway Hale. I dont think students even notice that its even there. But it is faced towards the road so it is showing appreciation towards the Bus Drivers that drive the busses. Multilingual Hawaiʻi
