Dr Ricky, aloha:
At Nakem Conferences, we know that finally KWF has gained some respectability when that government agency had you as interim chair after wasting our patience and understanding for many decades and after not knowing–also for that length of time–how to use our tax money wisely to develop our languages.
You will be remembered for giving a breath of fresh air to that agency that was instrumental for this pervasive linguistic injustice committed against all non-Tagalog peoples and even among the Tagalog.
Mahalo for the sacrifices–and there were a lot that people in power do not know and do not care to know.
Best to you in the name of the anito of our languages and cultures.
