Ua hoʻopiha ʻia ka mākālua ma ka Hale o nā Lunamakaʻāinana.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 18 o ʻApelila, he Pōʻakolu. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

He manaʻo ko Dennis “Bumpy” Kanahele, e lilo ke kahua kolepa ʻo Olomana i wahi no ka poʻe hale ʻole o Waimānalo e noho ai. Ua pani kū ʻia iho nei ua kahua kolepa nei i ka Pōʻalima i hala ma muli o ka hiki ʻole ke uku aku i nā pila a me nā limahana. No ke aupuni mokuʻāina ia ʻāpana ʻāina, a ua hoʻolimalima ʻia i ka mea nona ke kahua kolepa. ʻO ka manaʻo o Kanahele, e hana ʻia he kūlanakauhale ma o ka hoʻohana ʻana i nā mea hou o ke ao nei. ʻO kekahi, he mea ia e māhuahua ai nā kūlana hana.

He ʻekolu moho hope loa no ke pani ʻana aku i ka mākālua ma ka Hale o nā Lunamakaʻāinana e waiho wale ana ma muli o ka haʻalele ʻana o Joseph Souki. ʻO ia ʻo Troy Hashimoto, ʻo Dain Kane, a me Joseph Wildman. A ʻo Hashimoto kai hoʻokohu ʻia e ke Kiaʻāina David Ige. He hope luna hoʻokō ʻo ia no ka Luna ʻAha Kūkā o Maui, ʻo Mike White, mai ka makahiki 2011. A mai ka makahiki 2013 a i ka makahiki 2017, ʻo Hashimoto ka luna hoʻomalu o ka ʻAoʻao Kemokalaka o ke Kalana ʻo Maui. E lawelawe ana ʻo ia i ka hana a pau ke koena o ka noho ʻana o Souki. A holo ihola kona manaʻo, e alualu i ia kūlana like ma ke koho wae moho e hiki mai ana.

Hoʻāʻo akula kekahi kanaka e ʻaihue kanaka aku i kekahi ʻōpiopio i kona wā e hele ana i ke Kula Kiʻekiʻe ʻo Kapolei. He 17 makahiki o ka ʻōpiopio, a e hele ana ʻo ia ma ke alanui ʻo Kaiau, a i ia manawa, lālau ʻia akula ʻo ia e kekahi kanaka. E ʻāʻumeʻume aku ana lāua a hemo akula kahi ʻōpiopio a holo akula. ʻO ke kanaka ʻaihue, he 30 a 40 paha ona makahiki. He ʻili hāuli kona. He lauoho ʻeleʻele pōkole, a he 200 ona paona, a he 5 ona kapuaʻi, 9 ʻīniha. A e komo ana ʻo ia i ka pālule ʻeleʻele, ua pukapuka, a me ka lole wāwae ʻekekeʻi ʻāhina. Aia nō ka mākaʻi ke ʻimi akula i ua wahi kanaka lā.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Puʻuwai hao kila.

ʻO ia hoʻi, he wiwo ʻole.
