Leeward CC’s door is now housed in the Library’s Reference, Reading, and Research Room, where all who walk on the main concourse can see it!

The Library and Hawaiian Studies Program are honored to host Dr. Puakea Nogelmeier, distinguished scholar, UH Professor of Hawaiian Language and a former Leeward student.
As Executive Director of Awaiaulu, Dr. Nogelmeier is the instrumental force behind the digitization of Hawaiian language legacy materials. His organization has made previously difficult to access Hawaiian language newspapers available to researchers and the general public. Recently, Awaiaulu donated to the Library a beautifully illustrated two-volume set of the Ka Mo’olelo o Hi’iakaikapoliopelewhich originally appeared in serialized form in a newspaper published in 1906. Dr. Nogelmeier translated the text from Hawaiian to English.
Dr. Nogelmeier will discuss his scholarship and journey from Leeward student to UHM professor. Please join us in welcoming back Dr. Nogelmeier to Leeward. Help us promote this special event by forwarding this post to your students. Light refreshments will be served.
