Four Months of Modern Issues, So what?

This one goes out to all my Maoliworld ʻohana who have been following the comments of our Modern Issues class... thanks for weighing in on some of our hot topic issues.

So, now weʻve been in this class since September. Iʻm really not sure I understand modern issues in Hawaii any better than when I started, but at least I have a little bit more context. AND... the most valuable lesson coming out of this semester is that we are each otherʻs best resource. Yup. I thought Iʻd be coming… Continue

Playing the Past, Grounding the Future

Thanks to Kumu Lynette Cruz, Kumu Kahele Dukelow and Kumu Kaleikoa Kaeo for calling to perform in ʻThe Queenʻs Womenʻ sponsored by Ka Lei Maile Aliʻi civic club... It was over a month ago that I had this opportunity yet it was this week that new inspiration came to me on this brief experience. (Sometimes it takes a while for things to sink in...)

I played the role of Miriam Michelson, a reporter from San Francisco who documented an anti-annexation meeting held in Hilo, 1897. Speaking… Continue

Health and Sexuality Post 2- Other Indigenous Perspectives

Aloha e Na hoapapa a me na kanaka ma Maoliworld-

Here is the second installation of probably a 4-part response to a question on Health and Sexuality... this time I share with you some teachings from other Native women, two specifically who dedicate their lives to this work.

First I will say that as far as I can tell, this parallels with the Hawaiian practice of the women's "hale pe'a". That is, women in their menstrual time are invited to spend time with each other only,… Continue

Health and Sexuality Post 1 (Response to Blog comment/question)

Aloha Kakou,

In response to my blog post asking about the most important issues facing Hawaii today, one respondent asked me the following:

"Can you get a group of women and talk among yourselves about "Hawaiian Sexuality"? What I want to hear is the old kupuna and see how they have kept themselves healthy, or not. If, so what happen over the years."

So yes I have started gathering info and stories from some of our kupuna here on Maui, more to come in following… Continue

Aloha mai a Eliza,

Is this class available online? When did this class start up? Was it recently?

I know what it's like to be a student, and put time in the community. Most times I commit academic suicide because the need is so great and I have an opinion which runs counter to the intent of my instructors.

Thanks for the bird sounds. I am a forest person.

So I am truly not asking for anything more except to realize that people touch our people and don't even step beyond to their needs was my point.

About Kaleikoa Ka'eo, I'm glad to know you are a student of his, it's great to be near the helm. Maui is loosing their sun spirituality to scientist as we speak because of their deals. I don't trust Mauians and their political play, nothing personal just lacking in political power, or understanding of policy mayhem.

I am greatful for ones scarry ferry win win.

You did not mention what or who you were with when you came to Waianae. If this is confidential I can understand and have no problem with it. But can you tell me the area that you stopped in.

As for Waianae and me myself, pretty much there isn't anything that goes on that I don't know about. I was not the leader in the front line because I'm from Koolaupoko, although I've had a residence here since 1984.

I have been involve with Hawaiian activisim since 1974, and pretty much know a lot that had gone on since then.

I work during the day teaching and I work at night teachig drop our students. Much of my time is thinking how to bring Waianae on to the 'thinking process' which they can do quite well when given the opportunity.

I stronly believe now a days, that they should lead themselves, and my role is to transition there needs to that 'paradigm' shift' to a level of their choice.

The co-dependency, I believe is their problem that 'messiah' thing. As we hang in the balance of justice for that coming, we loose our freedom to think. So, I feel that independence is imperative at this time regardless of what social-economic level ones at. And, much of Waianae Kanaka Maoli are on the beaches in homeless dens.

My take on our homeless, most people think that our homeless is because of poverty true. However, what (including homeless) don't get that they are Maoli, and their deep nature when in basic need, their nature is to go to the edge of the the shores. In Modern times when they get there, they don't know what to do. Our spirituality is almost nile, however, I can see it in their eyes.

So it takes 'transfere of language' of all kinds to understand and connect. I don't use standard American English nor do I care to learn Hawaiian language from L2's. because which pisses me off, I am expected to divorce myself from first langage speakers.

So, I get pretty cranky with scholarly people. I could not spend time and energy arguing agains the entire 200 years of anthro, arguing the years of language L2's and their stupid needs at UH Manoa, so I fail with Hawaiian Studies people each time I'm around them since 1987.

It is much easier for me to be with my people using standard English...cause I work faster to meet basic needs which, in fact, transpirers to 'selling out'. So, keeping a balance sometimes makes me too cranky.

If you have been to Waianae did you go to the end of Waianae and see our people at Ke'aus? If not next time travel to the end of the road.

I can be reached at 554-2473 or 696-2744 Luwella K Leonardi I need to get to work, so call me should you return to Waianae.

Can you get a group of women and talk among yourselves about "Hawaiian Sexuality"? What I want to hear is the old kupuna and see how they have kept themselves healthy, or not. If, so what happen over the years. Plan Parenthood doesn't apply although they have a stronger voice.

Hawaiian sexuality and because we were the first abortion fake state, in 1972 since than Maoli women's health have declined rapidly. kaohi

I don't believe I'm blood related to Hui 'Ohana singers...that was never brought up in 'ohana conversation but I'm not the genealogist in the family so I won't say yes or no...but we love their music. In our home, we always had live music at our pa'ina. The last group that played a lot at our home was a trio: Boonda, Tony & Sonny (Elmer LIm JR, slack key artist). They played at my parents house alot here at home on the weekend for whatever kind of pa'ina my parents had. Birthday, "Just Because", My welcome back or going away party when I visited home from college, etc. Sonny's parents home is only 4 houses away and my father's mother's side of the family (Kupuka'a) hanai'd their father and his little brother Kimo who is also passed from that tragic helicopter accident here on the Kohala Coast a long time ago. After 1988 with my father's passing we didn't have any more music parties - my father and his presence then changed everything...I miss him and realize now that moments like that in life is something to cherish...you don't realize how much of an impact it has on your life until you don't have it in your life anymore...and then we all move on and start families of our own...SMILE. These days with DUI's and liability issues...hard to have pa'ina like we used to have at our home...people these days sue your butt - but my dad...no one would do that to Bernard...he was a guy that was a friend to all and give you his last shirt off his back. Long ago are the days when people fell asleep in their cars instead of driving off in their cars if they had too much to drink...SMILE.

Welcome to Maoliworld....I would like to know where did you receive your prayer flags from? They are very long and the wider than the norm. I have only come across the shorter lengths and would like the longer versions...can you help? MAHALO!
