Kanehunamoku's La Hanau

Kanehunamoku, the wa`a captained by Bonnie Kahape`a Tanner, just celebrated her 5th la hanau. The day was beautiful at Kualoa where she had been launched like her mother, the "star of gladness", who had been launched in the years prior. There was a big pa'ina and all who came enjoyed entertainment and AWESOME grindz. She enjoyed an EXTREMELY calm sail back to her captains hale with a few up-and-coming holowa`a-erz learning the ropes. It was an AWESOME and EVENTFUL day that I am sure left everyone exhausted and eager for another sailing day on the vast ocean that surrounds these LOVELY islands in which we all call home

This is not a joke nor some bullshit story I'm telling you on here.  This is something that just happened to me while driving home at 7:00pm from my parents home to town where I live on Molokai.  There was a road block and I'm going to tell you exactly what had happened to me when I got pulled over.


Policeman:  Where's your papers for your car?


The papers was on my passenger seat when the policeman asked the question.  My car is totally illegal.


Me:  Um, I don't have the papers for my car.


Policeman:  With a smile on his face telling me awww, you don't have any of your papers for this car.


Me: yes I don't, can I tell you something officer?


Policeman:  Sure with a smile on his face.


Me:  I belong to the Kingdom of Hawaii, I'm from the Lawful Hawaiian Government and the Prime Minister for this Government is Henry Noa.


With out letting me finnished with the rest I wanted him to know, he took two huge steps back saying at the same time WOOOW.


Me:  Oh, is something wrong?


Without telling me anything else he changed the subject by saying.


Policeman:  You going get your papers hah?


Me: yeah I'm going to.


Now make a note of this that I still need to get my Plates, driver I.D. and my Gov. I.D. so under the human rights I can practice my right to travel.  Then he asked me.


Policeman:  Whats your name?


Me:  Duke Kalipi


Policeman:  Don't you have a cousin that live in Maunaloa?


Me:  Yes


By using that as an excuse, he let me go and I mean he wanted me to leave right away so he won't have to deal with being serve from our Government the Human Rights Violations.  He gave me a big wave to let me know that I needed to move quickly so the next car could come right in.



You see people, they doing this as a way to make more money for the police force and for the Government.  Henry has the puka and we need to use this as a tool for getting what we want and thats Independence.  IMUA Lawful Hawaiian Government and it's Nationals.

Back from Palmyra, and some of us got to see the legend in real life: Dadou, the shark-hunting dog, chase down a black-tip on the reef at low tide, pull it out of the water, and give it a tooth lomilomi. So not to damage the ecosystem, we distracted Dadou and placed the shark back in the water, and it swam off, shaken, but alive... It was said that Dadou had not gone shark-hunting for years, since a big shark retaliated and took a chunk out of his side. We saw the scars...

Among the other highlights were the amazing coral reefs, the butterfly fish in 4 inches of water, the orange and indigo coconut crabs, the endless noise of the 'ewa'ewa bird nesting areas, boobies sitting on the branches everywhere, big hermit crabs wandering about as ankle-turners on the trails at night, laua'e ferns up to your chest, giant Pisonia forest, more kioea than anyone had seen before in their lives, and on and on. Here is just one image, of the 'ewa'ewa (sooty terns) at their nests on the ground...

Hokule'a is on its Palmyra sail now and should arrive today (March 19) after about 10 days of sailing. see this site:
I composed their oli kahea and you can listen to how that oli sounds on the hokulea palmyra training sail page: Tomorrow I will fly down with the return crew to Palmyra to help tour the arriving crew around to see the wonders of Palmyra, the giant coconut crabs, the amazingly rich reefs and fish populations, the endless calls of the seabirds...

Makali'i and Kanehunamoku have recently finished a 6 week long summer program for kids. Makali'i stayed in Keauhou for 6 weeks doing a program called Kulia i ka pono for students in a Kamehameha schools funded program. Kanehunamoku started that program with Makali'i for the first three weeks and then moved on to Hilo to work with Kukulu kumuhana o Puna for one week and Na pua no'eau students for the remaining 2 weeks. While Kanehunamoku and Makali'i were both in Keauhou they ventured down to Kealakekua to sail along side o'ahu wa'a Iosepa. Good sailing time on the leeward/voggy side of moku o keawe. Thanks for a wonderful time all you holowa'a-erz. a hui hou aku no!!!! MWAH!!!
