Last week I attended funeral/memorial services for a friend who died unexpectedly. His wife died a few years earlier of cancer. They have three young adult children. Friday and Saturday services were held at a church. I attended Saturday's services. The church was overflowing with 'ohana and friends. After the kahu spoke, attendees were invited to share their thoughts. Two of his coworkers spoke about him and had everyone nodding in agreement and laughing about his always being right even when… Continue

So I grew up cracking up because of the humour of Booga Booga, Frank Delima, Andy Bumatai, Rap Reiplinger and nasty Mel Cabang (nah). These guys were hilarious. Their acts usually consisted of razzing people because of their race, racial stereotypes and other everyday activities of Hawaii. Even that song Mr. San Cho Lee was SO funny and oh so true. These were times when we could laugh about such things and not fear being labeled racist or sued for racial insensitivity, etc.
This was… Continue

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

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

First Wind is the owner of the Kaheawa Wind Farm located between 1900-3000 feet on the slopes above Ma’alaea, Maui . Currently the 20 1.5 megawatts turbines produce about 30 megawatts of electricity a year and are estimated to provide enough energy for 1100 average Maui family homes. Unlike energy produced from fossil fuels, wind energy does not pollute the air or water and doesn’t produce carbon emissions that contribute to global warming.
Hawaii is aiming to produce at least 70… Continue

While in grade school and high school, I was very aware of these laws and it was one of the reasons I was against statehood and the U.S. belligerent occupation. I detested what the U.S. actually stands for. The Akaka Bill is the continuance of this kind of mind-set. Few people realize that we did better as the Kingdom of Hawai'i; the rest have been brain-washed and conditioned to think otherwise.
The U.S. is still suffering from this malady and promote the WASP racist Manifest… Continue

The Polynesians were a voyaging people with a vast knowledge of nature. Every element of nature was looked at to discover its truth. The skies were studied and memorized by kilo hoku and used by navigators to voyage to Kahikinui. If a bird could venture out over the vast sea, then so could man.
I was fortunate enough to be a student of Kumu Kalei Tsuha Nuuhiwa when she taught a Hawaiian Astronomy class at Maui Community College. Classes were 90 minutes, twice a week, delivered in 12… Continue

A couple of Saturdays ago me and my brother worked down at Ko'ie'ie fish pond in Kihei. We had been going around Maui helping out at different restoration sites. I was excited to work at Ko'ie'ie because I hadn't worked at a fish pond in a while. I was expecting to be working along side some locals however; I quickly discovered that was not going to happen. When we arrived to the fish pond we joined a group of all haoles, except the two Hawaiian men who were spear heading the project. Me and my… Continue
