2017 Club Report


Ano'ai kakou,


E Ho'okanaka--much aloha to all that came to kokua and celebrate the great warrior and Chief from Kohala, who united all the Hawaiian islands as the Hawaiian Kingdom. Many came with lei's, and chants, mele and hula and they brought all their aloha for our "Ali'i."


We enjoyed a very long parade of Pa'u riders, with mother's and daughters, and granddaughters, and sisters and brothers, all happily representing our island Moku's; and there was a long line of floats with many local business's represented and the "Kahua Ranch families" who were celebrating their reunion, made and appearance in our parade. It was nice to see many faces from long ago.


There are a few issues with our Statue, our "community kii." Kohala will decide what to do and how we will handle the "hand" for now, but more so we need funds for the repair and restoration/conservation and preservation of our Statue. This task has again been left to the "community" to seek out funds for this maintenance work, yet the second Statue cast from the same mold is cared for by the State Foundation on Culture and Arts, and this other Statue is at Ali'iolani Hale in Honolulu. Everyday people come to see this first Statue that was commissioned by the Hawaiian Kingdom, and hopefully we could get a share of our tourist tax to help maintain our "kii". And hopefully someone will come forward to take responsibility of this historic Statue of Kamehameha Nui!


Our "E Ho'okanaka Retreat" was educational and enlightening.


"E Ho'oma'ika'i", and God is great as he brought our "voyagers" home! Such a proud event and a great moment in my life....and I congratulate our Kohala way-finders----
