DIACRITICAL MARKINGS

Discovery Land Company and the Makena Golf & Beach Club recognize the importance of using diacritical markings of the (modern) Hawaiian language, including the ʻokina [ʻ] or glottal stop and the kahakō [ō] or macron (e.g., in place names of Hawaiʻi such as Mākena). These diacritical markings have been included throughout the website.  We recognize the importance of using these markings to preserve the language and culture of Hawaiʻi and respectfully use them in many communications beyond this online platform.
