No, because when Pauahi was making her will she said that she wanted to make some of her land into a school for children that have Hawaiian blood. I think that it would not be right to go against Pauahi’s will because even though Pauahi is not with us, if she were alive she would love all of us as if we were her own children. If you made a will that willed 25% of your stuff to your best friend, I don’t think you would like it if you watched down from heaven if your best friend took 50% of your stuff instead of 25% of your stuff.
No, because in Pauahi’s will it said that she wanted Hawai‘ian children in this school. She did not say anything about other people. She made this school for Hawai‘ian students to learn about our culture and not let it die out. Of course, non-Hawai‘ians can learn about our culture but there are so many Hawai‘ian kids in need, there is not anymore space. Wouldn’t you give the Hawai‘ians a chance to learn about their culture when it is dying, so they can bring it back up?
We are not being racist. We are doing what was in Pauahi’s will to let only the Hawai‘ians in.
No, because when Pauahi made her school, she also made a will. That will was to have a school for Hawaiian people. The Hawaiian people needed more education to become leaders. Our school does not want to make that will false. It has to stay that way. Also, over 50% of Hawaii is not filled with Hawaiian people. Its filled with foreigners from around the world. If we let other races join our school, over 50% of our students will not be Hawaiian. Kamehameha schools was built to make Hawaiian leaders. We need more leaders that are Hawaiian. The reason we were taken over is because the foreigners thought we couldn’t live without them. We need to prove we can live on our own so we can get our land back. This is our land. This is our people. We need to move up, not down. Most of the jails have Hawaiians in them. We look bad now. If we let foreign people join our school, it’ll be harder for us to become leaders.
No, because in Pauahi’s will she said that she wanted this school for Hawaiians. She also said she would take in orphans. She did this because she wanted the young Hawaiians to learn about the past and not to let the culture die out. When we learn about our culture, it sinks in to us, but maybe when we teach our culture to the Whites, then they might think it’s funny and fool around.
Even though Pauahi died, we still try to follow her will. She wants us to become strong and industrious young men and women. Pauahi is still with us today and I think she is happy that we are following her will.
We will fight to keep our school just a Hawaiian school, so we must be strong. Imua : )
No, because Pauahi said in her will that she wanted the school to benefit Hawaiian children, not Haole people, Chinese or anybocy else, but specifically Hawaiian children. She also said that she wanted or will accept orphans and the poor, so that someday they can get a job and make money so they are not poor and they have houses.
And even though Pauahi died, we still carry on her assignments and we will fight for our rights to become smart hardworking people of the Hawaiian nation.
No, I do not think we should admit non-Hawaiians to Kamehameha Schools because it is in her will that Kamehameha Schools is for Hawaiian kids and orphans to become native leaders to the Hawaiian people. If you go to the Kapälama chapel at the part where you go in, look up and youʻll find an engraving of that part of Princess Pauahiʻs will.
Now that Pauahi is dead, we must carry on the legacy and survive as strong Hawaiians!!!
No, because Pauahi’s will had said that she wanted Hawaiian children to come to this school. The will said the school will allow orphans and poor people who are Hawaiian.
Some people think we are racist, but we are not because Pauahi wanted her culture to survive and we could continue bringing the Hawaiian culture back. I mean wouldn’t you want your culture to survive if it was dying.
I personally believe that Kamehameha Schools should not let non-Hawaiians into this school.
I don’t think that Kamehameha should let non-Hawaiians because Pauahi’s will clearly states that she wants only people of Hawaiian descent to go to Kamehameha. Her will also says that she wants orphans and poor children in the school. After that wish, she says that she gives power to the trustees to change the admissions policy. At one time, faculty could test a non-Hawaiian to Kamehameha but that rule ended a while ago.
Even though Pauahi has passed on, we will all try our hardest to carry on her legacy and become great Hawaiian leaders.
I don’t think that they should let non-Hawaiians in Kamehameha schools because while Pauahi made the school she also made a will and that will said that the school was for Hawaiian children only! And plus, don’t you think that breaking Pauahi’s will isn’t really the greatest thing to do as a Hawaiian in the Kamehameha schools that Pauahi made for all of us.
There is also something else that she mentioned in her will and that was was letting her trustees make different rules or violate some rules. And yes the trustees do have a choice to violate that rule. Do you really think that us as Hawaiians in a world like this where Hawaiians need leaders should just let some other culture to come and just leave all this behind when he goes to college or do want us to maintain the pure Hawaiian culture and make even more leaders to increase the chance of the Hawaiian leaders making a difference?
No, because in Pauahi’s will it says that hawaiians are prefrenced above non-hawaiians, and its just about the only thing that the hawaiians have for themselves. If there are no qualified hawaiians to go to Kamehameha then we can accept non-hawaiians. If it wasn’t for pauahi the hawaiians would have nothing of our own.
I also think that the trustees don’t have authority over pauahi’s will to let non-hawaiians to come if there parent works for Kamehameha, what’s up with that? Pauahi’s will clearly states that hawaiians are preferenced. So by giving that spot to a non-hawaiian you left out a hawaiian that could become the next great hawaiian leader.:(
NO!!!Kamehameha schools should not accept non-hawaiians because pauahi said she wants her money to go to a school for hawaiian kids. The money is pauahi’s and she has a right to do what she wants with it, so if she wants to make a school for hawaiians then she has the right to. Hawaiians need a school like this especially theese days because like Mr. Chung said hawaiians are in big trouble and this school will give a chance for a lot of hawaiians to be more responsible and industrious.
