Hawaiian alphabet: Vowels: A, E, I, O, U Consonants: H, K, L, M, N, P, W
Compare this with the Maori language spoken at the other end of the Pacific
Ocean: The Maori alphabet (Te P Taka Mori) consists of 10 consonants and 5
vowels: Vowels: a, e, i, o, u Consonants: h, k, m, n, ng, p, r, t, w, wh.
Two of the consonants have two letters that combine to form one sound
(Digraphs): wh, ng. It can be seen how similar the two languages are and
attests to the Polynesian culture being great seafarers.

There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.
― Mahatma Gandhi
