Ma ka la 27 o Ianuali, o ka hana hoolaa ʻia e ʻOhu Gon, Hanalei Marzan a me Mahealani Wong, no ka hale pili ma ka Hale Hawaii o ka Hale Hoʻikeʻike Bihopa.
On Jan. 27th, ʻOhu Gon, Hanalei Marzan and Mahealani Wong offered oli in dedication and blessing of the Hale Pili in Hawaiian Hall at the Bishop Museum.

Ua noho malie keia hale pili kahiko, kuʻai ʻia ma Kauaʻi i ka wehena o ke Kenekulia 20 he mea palahē, ā kūkulu hou ʻia ma ka Hale Hawaii.
The ancient hale pili, originally purchased in dilapidated form on Kaua'i in the early 20th century, then reconstructed in Hawaiian Hall, remained unchanged for nearly a century.


Ua ku mai nei na mea i hana ai i keia hana kukulu, na haumana o ke kula nui o Farrington, na hoahana o ka hale hoikeike, a me na ʻaʻa.

The ceremony was attended by those who labored on the project, including many of the Farrington academy students, museum staff and volunteers.

Ua ʻohi ka pili mai ʻo a ʻo ma Hilo a me Maui, a ua kaulaʻi maiau, a puʻolo ʻia e na haumana Farrington
Pili collected from far-flung locations in Hilo and on Maui was carefully dried and bundled by the Farrington students.

Ua hawele pono ʻia ka pili i ka haka oʻa hale e Kumu Pomaikaʻi Kaniʻaupiʻo-Crozier a me Alakaʻi Malia Kniatt, a me na mea ʻe aʻe. ʻO ukiuki ke kaula, ua wili ʻia ka nui e Hanalei Marzan.
The grass was skillfully lashed to the house framework by Kumu Pomaika'i Kaniaupi'o-Crozier and Alaka'i Malia Kniatt, and others. The lashing cord was ukiuki, braided largely by Hanalei Marzan.

Ua hoolaa ʻia na moena a me na lako hale ko loko, e kau pono i loko o ka hale ma hope.
Interior matting and furnishings were also blessed, to be installed inside hale pili, later.


He hana hauʻoli nō keia hana komo ʻapana
It was happy work, this appointed priestly duty.

E nana i na kiʻi ʻe aʻe maʻaneʻi.

Is that the same hale pili that was moved from Miloli'i Valley on Kaua'i? The finished product is indeed maika'i loa. It would be nice if it could be returned to Kaua'i to it's origins and maintained by family who have connections to that valley.
