Hia wau i kou aka,

  1. Mahalo for the wonderful videos. I enjoy them very much.

    I so want to learn Hawaiian and these are helping in a very entertaining way.
    can’t wait for more.

  2. I’m 9 and this song is like a spell to me I can’t learn the words cause I keep falling asleep. I think I listened to it for the past 88 days now ♥️♥️♥️ vid!!!

    1. Makaʻiwa Keiki I subscribed to your channel I showed it to my sister (2 years old) and she fell asleep too. Love your videos please make more!!! Mahalo for making great videos!!!!!!!!

    1. Aloha Kenny, Maka’iwa Keiki is a passion project for now. We want to put some fun musical videos and promote Hawaiian language while we hammer out the animation/sound process for a larger project. Thanks for commenting!

  3. This is so wonderful its amazing when I was in 1st or 2nd grade I had a teacher was leaving school to go to Hawaii and get married and I remember her teaching the class this song and I’ve never forgotten it sometimes I just sing it to myself
