It's Free-For-All Friday!




Friday, November 20, 2009
Ni'ihau, "The Forbidden Isle," is a place of mystery to outsiders. The Island is the smallest of the seven inhabited Hawaiian Islands and is a sanctuary for its 130 residents, nearly all of whom are Native Hawaiians. For over a century, access has been limited to those Hawaiian families who work on its privately owned cattle and sheep ranch.  Residents speak the Hawaiian language which preserves Hawaiian culture and tradition although the Niʻihau dialect differs from standard Hawaiian.  It is the only Hawaiian island where the Hawaiian language is spoken as a primary language and where English is actually its second language.  [Source: Wikipedia]
