Hawaii Community Foundation
Hawaiian Language & Diacriticals

Header Logo Icon red


The Hawaiian language uses two diacritical markings, the okina and the kahako. Because some browsers, and computer operating systems display these markings as boxes or question marks, the Hawaii Community Foundation has standardized our website and digital communications to omit diacritical markings.
