Their efforts were intended to acquire visibility, identity, and selfrespect” (Nicole 2001, 179). Language and land were at the core of the Ma‘ohi revival movement. Through language the revivalists attempted “to establish an initial dialogue not with the colonizer but with fellow Ma‘ohi” (Nicole 1999, 274).
