E pilikia auaneʻi paha ka poʻe mahi kope o Kona.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 26 o Pepeluali, he Pōʻakahi. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Kono ʻia iho nei ka lehulehu e mākaʻikaʻi i kahi noho o nā kānaka kuewa i kapa ʻia ʻo Puʻuhonua o Waiʻanae. He 200 lākou a emi iki mai. A ʻo ka nui o nā kānaka i hele aku e mākaʻikaʻi i ia wahi noho i ka Lāpule nei, he 550. ʻO ke kumu i kono ʻia ai ka lehulehu i laila, i mea e hōʻike ai i ke aupuni, he ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi o ia wahi ma mua o ke kipaku ʻia ʻana o ka poʻe kuewa e like me ka mea maʻa mau. He manaʻo ko ka Lunamakaʻāinana John Mizuno, e hoʻolimalima ʻia ka ʻāina e waiho nei ʻo Puʻuhonua o Waiʻanae e like me ka ʻaelike me Dennis “Bumpy” Kanahele ma Waimānalo, ʻo ia hoʻi ʻo Puʻuhonua o Waimānalo.

Aia nō ka poʻe kanu kope o Kona ke hopohopo ihola i ka hana a ka hui ʻo Kona Hills. He manaʻo ko ia hui e hoʻokomo mai i nā ʻele ʻanoʻano kope he 1.5 miliona mai Costa Rica mai no ka hoʻokumu ʻana i ka mahi kope nui loa o Kona. ʻO kekahi pilikia, ua laha loa nō ka maʻi i kapa ʻia ʻo ke kūkaehao kope ma Costa Rica. Akā, wahi a Kona Hills, e hana ʻo ia i wahi e komo ʻole ai ia maʻi i Hawaiʻi. ʻO kekahi pilikia, ʻo nā ʻano o ke kope e hoʻokomo ʻia mai, ʻaʻole ia ʻo ke ʻano e mahi ʻia nei e ka hapa nui o nā mahi kope ma Kona i kēia manawa, ʻo ia hoʻi ke ʻano i kapa ʻia ʻo ka typica. He makemake ka hui ʻo Kona Hills i nā ʻano kope he ʻeono, a he ʻelima o lākou, ʻaʻole e mahi ʻia akula ma Kona.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Huleilua i nā nalu o Launiupoko.

He ʻōlelo kēia no ke kanaka i kānalua no kāna hana iho.
