A big mahalo to all who expressed your outrage this last week at the Ceded Lands Settlement swindle the Office Of Hawaiian Affairs tried its best to pull off.
Good news - the Hawai`i legislature has listened.
As a result, two things have happened as a direct result of making your voices heard.
First, the Ceded Lands bill appears dead.
Second, the bill to give OHA trustees pay raises we recently warned you about on… Continue

So I thought it would be a good idea to make a quick way for me to grow small huli to planting size, and also to get huli from planting corms. I'm gonna try and make some fertilizer for a hydroponic system so I can be economical.
Goal: To create a cheap compounded organic fertilizer, nutrient, and probiotic solution.
Result: We will attain an effective way to fertilize our plants using the lowest input possible, drastically cutting overhead costs.
Ideal Conditions: Closed… Continue

Just read on Google that there is going to be an interesting event to promote awareness about global warming and electricity use all around the world tomorrow, March 29th. The event, sponsored by the World Wildlife Foundation, is actually starting in certain parts of the world already, and there are whole cities who are on board for this event, as well as Honolulu (what that means I donʻt know). They are asking people to turn off all their lights and electricity between… Continue

Honolulu Advertiser - Friday, March 28, 2008
A key Senate committee yesterday advanced a resolution urging state Auditor Marion Higa to conduct a financial and management audit of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, following more than three hours of testimony for and against the action....
Senators said the suggestion for an audit came from growing calls from constituents who question OHA's expenditures and want more accountability from an agency established to benefit… Continue

I read through the latest script last night. Obviously this guy wanted to use our Princess as a main character simply because he needed an exotic angle to make a sub-standard love story seem more interesting.
What I found most ironic was the disclaimer on the second page: "This film is based on historical fact. Some events and dates have been altered for dramatic license."
Yah, no kidding.
How about this alteration of historical fact: there are no bayonets… Continue

Honolulu Star-Bulletin - Thursday, March 27, 2008
The state Legislature is considering a special audit of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs because of questions about whether the agency "is adequately managing its affairs and financial resources...."

Been on Big Island 20 years, and its home, I love it. The people, the aina, the ocean, the food. Want to hear what you feel about it.

I walked by the palace this morning, unaware of what I would find once I arrived there...
Apparently they're filming the already infamous 'love story' on our palace grounds for 4 days. The palace is decked out in all its regal splendor, including the gazebo. (I hope they're not allowed to enter the gazebo...they won't even let most Hawaiians walk on the gazebo!)
They've put mulch down over all the pavement, to make it appear like dirt roads, and they've got horse-drawn… Continue

Tis the most wunnerful time of the year…
This is the last year that all three of my kids will be playing in the Haili tourney, as my hiapo graduates soon and will head to wherever she is heading. Last night I sat in the stands, more quiet than my usual, as I prefer to take advantage of those socially-appropriate opportunities when I can SCREAM MY LEMU OFF IN PUBLIC. I watched my boy move into the finals (ua eo i ko HNL; alas) and watched my bebe girl take it to the floor in her… Continue

I don't watch the news much (too depressing and/or frustrating), but I happened to catch the channel 2 report last night about the Ranch's closing. What really irritated me was that they showed an older Hawaiian woman who works there. I don't know what her intention was with her comments, but by the way the news people edited her interview, her comments seemed to infer that the Ranch's closing was because of the protests, and that the problem was "Hawaiians against Hawaiians."
I say… Continue

Okay, I've arrived! I'm finally on Maoliworld! Mahalo ia oe e Bully for being the first to invite me. Didn't know Maoliworrld existed until then.
Anyways, just a quick note to say that I'm happy to be here. It'll probably take some time for me to learn my way around the site. Wanted to say that I'm looking forward to meeting more people out there on Maoliworld!

This morning, I was trying to remember my first hi`uwai and couldn`t. Talking to my Mom, we agreed it was most likely on Kaua`i the first time I visited Ke-ahu-a-laka with my kumu, Pulu`elo Park. That was well over twenty years ago! Growing up in hula, we would hi`uwai every year or so and it was usually in preparation for an `uniki or ho`ike. We would always sit and meditate on the beach until the sky lightened and Aunty told us it was time to go in. Once in the ocean, we would hold hands and… Continue
