Hōʻike aʻela ʻo Randall Saito i kona kumu i mahuka ai mai ka hale maʻi mai.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 17 o Nowemapa, he Pōʻalima. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Ua hōʻike aʻela ʻo Randall Saito, ka mea i mahuka mai ka Hale Maʻi Aupuni Mokuʻāina o Hawaiʻi, ua holo kona manaʻo e mahuka no ka ʻike ʻana o nā luna hale maʻi, he hiki iā ia ke hana pono i kona wā e noho hoʻokahi ai ma waho o ka hale maʻi. Wahi āna, i nā manawa a pau āna o ke noi ʻana aku i ka hoʻokuʻu ʻia, ua hōʻole ʻia. A ʻōlelo nō hoʻi ʻo Saito, i kona wā i hopu ʻia ai no ka pepehi ʻana iā Sandra Yamashiro a make, hana wale ʻo ia me he mea lā, ua loaʻa ʻo ia i ka maʻi hehena i ʻole ai ʻo ia e hoʻopaʻahao ʻia a i hoʻokomo ʻia ai hoʻi ʻo ia i loko o ka hale maʻi. Ua mihi nō ʻo ia i ka hana ʻana pēlā, a mihi nō hoʻi i ka pepehi ʻana iā Yamashiro. ʻŌlelo aʻela ʻo Saito, he puni lāʻau ʻona ʻo ia no nā makahiki ʻekolu ma mua o kona pepehi ʻana iā Yamashiro. Ma nā makahiki he ʻewalu i kaʻa hope aku nei, he 17 mau kānaka i mahuka mai ia hale maʻi mai, ʻo Saito kekahi o lākou. ʻO ka hapa nui o lākou, ua hoʻokuʻu ʻia no kahi wā e holoholo ai me ka lehulehu, a ʻaʻole nō i hoʻi i ka hale maʻi i ka wā kūpono. Ua hopu koke ʻia naʻe lākou. Akā, ʻo kekahi o ia mau mahuka, i ka makahiki 2009, ua nalowale ʻo ia a ʻaneʻane e piha nā makahiki ʻekolu, a hopu hou ʻia ʻo ia.

Kau aʻe nei ka ʻōlelo hoʻopaʻi o Makuola Collins. A he kanono nō ka hoʻopaʻi. He 30 makahiki o ka noho paʻahao ʻana, he 20 makahiki no ka lawe ola, ʻo ka hoʻopaʻi kiʻekiʻe loa ia, a he 10 makahiki no ka paʻa i ka pū me ka loaʻa ʻole o ka palapala ʻae, a ʻo ka hoʻopaʻi kiʻekiʻe loa nō hoʻi ia. ʻO Collins, ua kī aku ʻo ia iā Joel Botelho, a make ihola ʻo Botelho. ʻO kahi mea minamina, he mau hoa aloha lāua i ko lāua wā e kamaliʻi ana a he mau hoa pāʻani pōpō pekupeku no ke Kula Kiʻekiʻe ʻo Kākela. Ma ka mahina ʻo ʻAukake, ua kamaʻilio ʻo Collins me nā mākua o Botelho i mea e hoʻoponopono ai. A ua mahalo nā mākua i ia kamaʻilio ʻana.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Ua pau koʻu lihi hoihoi i ka nani o Poka ʻAilana.

ʻŌlelo kēia i ka wā e pau ai ka hie o kekahi mea.
