Tongan Resources for Hawaii

Tongan Multilingual Kokua Mau Resources

All documents (PDF files) are in Tongan only and are intended for educational purposes to facilitate the discussion of the topics with Hawai‘i residents with limited English proficiency. The Hawaii Advance Directive is the only exception, with a bilingual layout block by block.

Please visit the English background page for more information as well as an English PDF of the respective translated document.

As more Tongan materials become available we may list selected resources from other organizations here.
