Aloha Uncle Wes,
This is Keikilani from Halau Ku Mana. Mahalo for coming to teach the 'opio of Hana No'eau. I was hoping you would be apart of my paper that I have to write..I have one question for you that has to do with Hana No'eau. This question is apart of my Thesis Statement for my English class.What were the traditional needs and what are the modern equivalents of Hana No'eau?

Aloha Wes,

Roberta gave me your name.  I was interested in the McCandless Genealogy.  John K. McCandless and Paula Elderts are my Great Grand Parents.  Would you be able to help me with my Ohana Tree?  Thanks So Much.

Of course the Akaka Bill continues to promot 70-450 and support the U.S. racist Manifest Destiny doctrines that they claim validates their supremacy as WASP christians ordained by God to subjugate non-whites and that they have plenary powers 70-448 over them whether they are christians or not. All this is nonsense and the U.S. should pay the piper and de-occupy Hawai'i once and for all. The U.S. is unable to show the treaty of annexation because there's none; U.S. Congress had rejected the treaty because it couldn't muster the 70-432 required 2/3rds majority vote. Joint Resolution is a domestic instrument that doesn't extend its jurisdiction into foreign countries.

Aloha e Uncle Wes
My name is Sharon K. Medeiros (Lindsey) I am new to this blog. But as I was going through it, I came across one of your messages to Miss Kamelamela. You mentioned Paula Elderts, wanted to know if Paula Elderts and Paula McCandless is one and the same. My mom is Maria K Pe'a from Puna. All those names you mentioned to Miss Kamelamela are my ohana. My tutu wahine on my mom's side was Kuluwaimaka Keliihoomalu married to Kahale Charles Iaukea Pe'a. But I would really like to know about Paula Elderts. Much mahalo.
Malama pono and a hui hou

Aloha kaua e Wes,
It's nice to see you've been busy with hana kapa. Please get in touch with me, I wanted to see if you completed the kapa pa'u for my kaikamahine, Kanoena. The last time I saw you was up at Waimea at the Waiki'i Festival a number of years ago. You can reply back to me or email me at lloydsing@hawaii.rr.com.

Hope all is well with you and your 'ohana. Malama pono a ke Akua pu.

I am curious...what Hopkins 'ohana is that in Ka'u? At one time my grandfathers grandparents lived in North Kohala, but relocated to Oahu in the mid-1880's. I didn't think there were any more family members living there. Mahalo for any info you can provide.

Aunty Angeline was the youngest daughter of Myrtle Fernandez and Charles Hopkins, my grandfather. Charles married his second wife and had a son, who is my father. My Dad and Aunty Pee Wee (as we affectionately call her) were the closest in age and thus very close to each other growing up.

Aloha kaua.

Frank told me that and have yet to keep up with my email then noticed you commented on one of my photos. The last time I went to an Among family reunion was in 2001. During family picture time... wow the ohana branches were huge... with so many people. Anyway small world! Aloha, Lana

Aloha e Wes!!!
I am so glad to have located you finally. email me and let me know your phone contacts. Would love to speak to you.

Aloha no,
I was looking at your photos and saw a picture of my Aunty, one of the kupuna who studied under Aunty Margaret. She is Angeline Locey of Anahola, Kaua'i. She no longer does lomi lomi but has passed the knowledge down to her son and granddaughter. All of our 'ohana at one time or another have been blessed by her healing hands. It is wonderful to know that this teaching will live on. Mahalo Aunty Margaret.
