Leokī, the first indigeneous language electronic bulletin board service, provides a variety of telecommunication services through the Hawaiian language. With the assistance of your computer, phone-line, modem and a few other software peripherals telecommunicating in Hawaiian is possible. Though there were several other BBSs set up for communications by Native American nations, none provided the ability to communicate in that language as well as had its interface in the language as well. All menus, dialog boxes, and alerts have been translated into Hawaiian.

Ma ka Leokī, ho‘ohana ‘ia ka lako polokalamu i hana ‘ia e ka Open Text Corporation o ‘Onaterio, Kanakā, a kapa ‘ia he FirstClass. Like loa ka holo ‘ana o ka lako polokalamu FirstClass me ka pae Macintosh. Ke ‘e‘e ‘oe ma luna o kekahi papa lawelawe ma ka FirstClass ma o kā lākou lako polokalamu, e ‘ō‘ili mai kekahi pukaaniani me nā wahī ma luna. ‘O ka ‘oia‘i‘o, he mau hālāwai kūkā, he mau leka uila, a he mau wahi ho‘āhu waihona ia mau wahī. Ho‘okele ‘ia ia polokalamu ma ke kuhi a me ke kaomi pū ‘ana i ka ‘iole, a he hiki nō ho‘i ke ho‘opilikino ‘ia ia lako polokalamu.

Leokī uses FirstClass software from Open Text Corporation of Ontario, Canada. FirstClass software very closely mimics the Macintosh interface. When you connect to a FirstClass BBS using their proprietary Client software, a window appears with what appears to be folders on it. These folders, in fact, are conferences, your mail box, and file storage areas. Navigating the system is done via point and click, and the user interface is very customizable.
