Chuukese Utteirek at the Hawaii Plantation Village 2017
The program mission is for us to teach the Chuukese Language and Culture in order to provide an opportunity for the Chuukese children who were born in Hawaii to learn and study the Chukese Language in four ways such as reading, verbal comprehension, writing and conversation and their cultural heritage for them to better understand value of life as they grew up to adulthood.
Our vision and goal here is to help the young people and to ensure that once in their life time he or she will be able to make a contribution to the general well-being of the Chuukese population and eventually to be able to speak and write in the Chuukese language and understand its culture as well. And overall to make contribution to the general well-being of the Chuukese people and help pass on the language and culture to the next generation to come.
