Abstract
Political activists, university faculty, and kumu hula have become more and more engaged in teaching ‘ōlelo Hawai’i (Hawaiian language) in efforts to revitalize an indigenous language that was close to extinction.  This participatory participatory action research study examines the roles of leaders of ‘ōlelo Hawai’i instruction and the impact of direct instruction on learners, through the use of “The Silent Way” methodology (Gattegno, 2010; Gattegno, 1972; Gattegno, 1963) in both face to face and online teaching and learning.  Research objectives were (1) examination of leadership strategies for attraction and retention of ōlelo Hawai’i instruction; (2) exploration of the impact on leaders of “The Silent Way” methodology; and (3) exploration of the impact on learners of “The Silent Way” methodology in face to face and online learning.  This study address a gap in the current literature regarding the use of “The Silent Way” methodology in teaching and learning ōlelo Hawai’i.  Additionally, the resurgence and revitalizaiton of ōlelo Hawai’i was explored through participant observation, individual interviews, and researcher field notes to explore the changing roles of leaders and learners of ‘ōlelo Hawai’i language instruction.

Aloha e Ryan, 

Thank you for the kind words.  I submitted this article to the Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, however, after a 7 month period, it was not accepted for publication.  No comments were given. 

I submitted the article to The First People's Child and Family Review next.  I am currently awaiting comments and/or acceptance.  

A nonprofit organization, Papahanakuaola, on O`ahu requested a copy of the research article so that they can bring `olelo Hawai`i instruction using The Silent Way, to their own organization.  Papahanakuaola's website link is:  http://papahanakuaola.com   if you would like to learn more about the organization.  My co-author, Kumu Cody Pueo Pata, has just been hired by Papahanakuaola as the Culture Specialist!   

I look forward to seeing this research go forward!
