Meliss,
Sometimes it is just best to watch a video to understand the person...and the issue. I like going to "Voices of Truth" with 'Ehu Cardwell, as he does a good job of capturing the "essence" of the person and the issue. The other video was my second one I took and POno helped me edit it. My first I have yet to edit. It is of Palani Vaughn in McDonalds'
in Waikiki as we were headed down to the start of the march.
That is...the Ku i Ka Pono march against sale/transfer of Ceded Lands.
Did you ever see the video of Jon's daughter, Jamaica? So good. I'll see if I can find it and sent that too. I saw an article that she was one of several young people who did their "slam" poetry for Obama, but she didn't do this one. She did something else. Was no doubt just as good.

Me too. I'm open to listening. May I also share with you that I had Kau Inoa present at our family reunion last year. An old friend, John Rosa, who is with OHA contacted me asking if they could come to our reunion. I was fine with it as signing up is a choice. Anyway, not long ago, Roy had emailed that some classmates were nuha because Kau Inoa was using the names to push the Akaka Bill. So I contacted John and asked him point blank. He assured me that the Kau Inoa "bashing" (my word) is not true and there are a lot of people out there passing around these false claims. He told me that the collection of names is for record keeping, or a database, to be used in the future as a means of contacting Hawaiians who may be interested in being involved in the nation building process. I signed up long time ago. This project was one that Tomi Girl Chong (Noa's late wife) had worked very hard on in it's infancy.

One thing to keep in mind. There are many, many people out there that are against us and our pursuits of the interests of the Hawaiian people. Many of these people know that us Hawaiians are divided and that we fight among ourselves and they use that to their advantage. They could be the very ones who spread these rumors, i.e. Kau Inoa, so that we will continue to argue and be at odds with each other which again, takes our focus and energies away from the more important issues.

Mahalo Meliss. It's nice to be able to kukakuka with you. Malama kou kino.
Aloha, Roz

Aloha Meliss,

I hope to learn a thing or two myself. I know the Akaka Bill is not perfect, but I see it as a means of stopping all the litigation against programs, etc., for Hawaiians as well as Kamehameha School. Ending the attacks in court would help direct our energies, time and focus to working on building a Hawaiian nation. As will all Congressional bills, amendments can be made in the future. Anyway, that's just some of my feelings. But I'm open to other opinions. AND, Ms Lingle sure has changed her spots!! Now, she's against the Bill because she thinks we'll build casinos. Ha-ha.

Aloha Meliss! I wish I knew! I am trying to find my roots, my family, and to learn more of my lineage. I went to www.familysearch.org to find the names of relatives connected to my father and my grandparents ~ both of whom I've never known because they were deceased. My dad is from the Big Island, we are related to the Ahakuelo family, I had an Aunty Mokihana & David Otholt, Aunty Queenie Ahakuelo Cavaco, and Uncle Kaulana. That's all I know of family on my dad's side. Mahalo!
