Learning Da Kine: A Filmmaker Tackles Local Culture and Pidgin
Booth, Marlene
Educational Perspectives, v41 n1-2 p17-21 2008
In this essay, the author discusses her experiences in creating her film about Hawai'i Creole. She shares how she chronicles the essence of local life in the film through Pidgin. She also discusses how she came to understand the power of Pidgin, its centrality in people's lives, and its place in defining the uniqueness of Hawai'i. As the author discovered, understanding the "thinking behind the language" is crucial to an understanding of a people.
