In Response to: "US role in the..." ATTEMPTED "dethronement of our Queen."

Aloha mai kaua,



I was just reading over your article and I found some of your points very interesting in relationship with the attempted overthrow of our nation by Thurston and his league of gutless terrorist fiends. The newspapers from old, including New York Times as well as some papers in San Francisco leave us clues to the co-conspirators mingling about at that time. It leaves us with that feeling in our na'au that the extremities in which they act are guided by their inherent… Continue

Skeletons In The Closet

Skeletons In The Closet



A commentary concerning "Nancy's Judgement Day."



By Hale Mawae



Judge Kathleen Watanabe after weeks of deliberation on both sides of the fence of bones at Naue, finally came to a decision on what to do. An injunction to stop construction at Naue was denied as the court's hands are tied by the law, but Watanabe ruled that it must go back to the Burial Council and SHPD since Nancy McMahon made the decision on the burial treatment plan… Continue

DHHL: Broken Promises, Broken Trust

Aloha mai kakou,



After reading this article published today in the Garden Island Newspaper, my first thought was, "wow, this really f***ing sucks!" My second thought was, "I hate to say I told you so." After hearing what happened with contractors here on Kaua'i at the new Kekaha Hawaiian Homes Site, and hearing multiple horror stories from roofing, to drywall, to framing, to plumbing problems with the contractor's shoddy building materials and services there in Kekaha, I'm not fully… Continue

Ola Na Iwi o Na Hala o Naue: The Bones Live at Na Hala o Naue!

Ola Na Iwi: The Bones Live



By Hale Mawae



In caring for my ancestors, I know that it is within the bones of our people, na o‘iwi o Ko Hawai‘i Pae ‘Aina, that our ancestors live. Ku‘u ewe, ku‘u piko, ku‘u iwi, ku‘u koko. My umbilical cord, my navel, my bones, my blood. All the elements of our body that constitute us as kanaka maoli. All cherished pieces of ourselves that connect us to that iwi. Ola na iwi. The bones live.



Here within the iwi is the life of our… Continue

Kalo at the Heart of Hearing

Most residents back county resolutions for cultural reasons



by Nathan Eagle - THE GARDEN ISLAND



More than a dozen residents opposed to genetically modified taro hoisted the culturally important plant and flaunted “protect your roots” shirts behind farmers who testified before the Kaua‘i County Council, yesterday, at the Historic County Building.



The council has proposed resolutions supporting three bills pending at the state Legislature that would impose a… Continue

by Nathan Eagle - THE GARDEN ISLAND



A deeply rooted community debate over the future of a culturally important crop on Kaua‘i climaxed late Thursday night at the Historic County Building.

R.I.P. Our Kupuna Out of the Ground! A Repatriation in Progress: Part II

Aloha mai kakou,



I recently ran into Halealoha Ayau and his wife Kainani Kahaunaele-Ayau on O'ahu after my grandmother's funeral services. Both are notable Hawaiian cultural practitioners, activists, educators, and now proud parents. As we shared casual conversation we began to open the controversial can of worms of the diverse issues taking a toll on Kaua'i. There seemed to be deep concern of the issues happening on Kaua'i as we spoke of the island we are privileged to call… Continue

Our Dearly Beloved Queen: Part II

Aloha mai kakou,



As Liliu'okalani departs on the Makee from Kaua'i, and returns home to Honolulu, where the heat of the passionate people outmatches the heat of the end of summer, we now enter an even darker period of our great Queen's life. Her entrance into the world of revolutionary politic's and trying to decide what is best for her own situation as the next reigning monarch.



The royal line that both her and her brother, King Kalakaua, represent is slowly being turned… Continue

A Portrait of Haloa: Our Elder Brother



A Testimonial Essay in Support of a Ten Year Moratorium

of Genetic Modifcation of Kalo



Haloa. Kalo. Our elder brother who became one with the ‘aina. Our great ancestor who’s only breath could be taken from the lau(leaf) at the core of the piko(center). The plant which feeds all kanaka. The plant that nourishes our kino(body). The plant, which connects us to our piko, our na‘au, and all of our ancestors, who have come before us.… Continue

Mauliola: The Holy Trinity of "Maoli Art"

Mauliola: The Holy Trinity of "Maoli Art"



As seen in discussion group "Maoli Artists and Creative Masterpieces"

https://maoliworld.ning.com/group/maoliartists



By Hale Mawae



I first want to mahalo Ikaika, for bringing up such an intuitive topic to the table, and agree with him on his definition of what really is maoli art. I think the term "maoli art" goes far deeper and is a much broader spectrum of creative artists in our kanaka maoli community. Maoli art… Continue

R.I.P. Our Kupuna Out of the Ground! A Repatriation in Progress: Part I

R.I.P Our Kupuna Out of the Ground! A Repatriation in Progress.



By Hale Mawae



Does anybody remember what went wrong at Waipouli? I know I do. I helped repatriate close to 50 kupuna iwi(ancestral bones) who were locked in a metal storage container for almost two years.



I remember making quite a lot of noise about those kupuna being locked up, and digging my nose around in burial council notes back to almost two years prior to the Waipouli development actually… Continue

Our Dearly Beloved Queen: Part I

Aloha mai kakou bloggers,



As we move toward the anniversary of the overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy, we find that history begins to repeat itself in ways that are on levels both spiritual and physical. Hawaiian philosophy believes that our physical entities in the present always co-exist between past, present, and future.



This belief in moving through this lifetime in a timeless manner makes our efforts in this lifetime so important and evident that your existence must… Continue

Something To Bite On!

Something to Bite On!



By Hale Mawae



Do people still need to depend on the land and the sea for the food that they put on the table?

Or are people starting to be consumers and dependent on the store out of commodity and easy living?



Are people just afraid to get their hands dirty, afraid to get some dirt under their fingernails and poke a few seeds in the ground? Are people too impatient to wait and watch something grow, pick it, and have the satisfaction of… Continue
