Aloha pumehana kākou! This is a pule that was shared with Kumu Crabbe while I spent time with Mama Kaleipua Pahulehua. It is one of the gems of our Kula Haʻahaʻa that praise God, his Son, Iesu and Ka ʻUhane Hemolele, the Holy Spirit.
ʻAlakaʻi: E pule pualu kākou i ka pule lanakila, mākaukau?
ʻAlakaʻi: A pule,
Ke hoʻomaikaʻi aku nei mākou iā ʻoe e Iehova, ko mākou Makua, a me Iesu, ko mākou hōʻōla a me Ka ʻUhane Hemolele ko mākou kōkua, ʻĀmene, ʻĀmene, ʻĀmene
Can you beleive it! This is the eighth week of school! Have you practiced your Hawaiian value, kuleana in the first trimester? How? Have you shown aloha to someone? To whom? As we journey through this school year, we are constantly reminded to do our assignments, finish our work on time, meet and plan projects. Even teachers have kuleana too!
E kū kanaka, e kū haʻaheo is a call to stand up and stand proud and tall as our alʻi and kūpuna have. We are their legacy and we must know that if it wasnʻt for them, we would not be here. Peacefully enjoy these next few weeks as the first trimester slowly comes to an end and be proud of your accomplishments. Itʻs our kulena to continue to be proud of who we are as native Hawaiians and children of Ke Aliʻi Bernice Pauahi Bishop. E kū kanaka, e kū haʻaheo!

Aloha mai kākou e nā hoamakamaka e heluhelu mai nei i kaʻu “blog”. Hoihoi kēia! I wanted to address some questions that I have been asked this past week. First, how much should you as a parent or ʻohana pick? Pick enough foliage for only one (1) neck lei. This is just to get a “taste” of making a hake lei and for Kumu Crabbe to share one of his passions with all of the Papa ʻEhā ʻohana. How much is enough for one neck lei, you ask??? One – two KTA plastic bags or one soda box filled with an assorted array of plant material. Another question is “Do I have to pick pūkiawe, liko lehua and ʻaʻaliʻi. ʻAʻole! No!!! You may pick and use whatever you wish to make the lei for your keiki. It will only be a neck lei. You may choose to use koa, uki grass, moa or pua lehua (either yellow or red) or any other Hawaiian plant material that is available. Another question that was asked was “Do we have to make a ʻfull setʻ ? No lei poʻo or kūpeʻe for the hands and feet. Just a neck lei. Kumu will also provide the raffia and the palapalai if I am able to get out to Kalopa to go and pick next weekend. Any other nīnau, just let me know, or call me at 982-0252. Iʻll be sure to get back to you.
Me ke aloha nui,

This mele speaks of the travels of Pauahi and Charles Reed Bishop to the United States and Europe in the years of 1875-1876. The Bishops also traveled to Canada, Scotland, England and Rome. There were many “new” sights to see and many places to visit. It also seemed to have been an educational journey for them as their were many museums and places of interest that they were able to take in on their trip.
