Hoop, Hawaiian Style

In December of 2010, two high school basketball teams on Oahu made history. Not because it was a great game - and it was by all accounts - but because the game was played by two Hawaiian-speaking teams. The match up was Kamakau vs. Anuenue and even though Anuenue came out on top it was a victory for Hawaiians everywhere and promises to inspire many future athletes and scholars for generations to come.
