My dad passed on July 2, 2011 at 1845 Maunawili Road. His name is Kanaka oo 'Niaupio--he is the nephew of Edward Niaupio..one can research Sites of Oahu, Handy and Bishop Museum to cite for research in the Koolaupoko area. My grand Uncle was sought for information about culture practices as well as highly respected. I follow my family principles of the long ago and bear witness to findings and evidence in the Koolaupoko area.
Growing up in Koolaupoko, I was near grand uncles and aunt's enough to listen to their voices. I also understood the responsibilities of their then era as well as the hardships of the 40s, 50s, and the 60s in Koolaupoko.
My mother asked that I return to our community because of the political changes and how detriment things are and will be in the future. I did and I am here to work for those changes in policies that are damaging to our people. Especially, changes to DHHL and those that are 50% plus bloodquatum. This is not the cite for this discussion. It takes courage to vent on the forum of ones frustrations.
Edward Niaupio took care of Ulupo as well as other areas and this information can be gotten at the Bishop Museum Library. May this cite and 99 members return to it's origin of music and questions and sharing with each other. Mahalo for your time.
