Pūʻiwa ihola ko Hawaiʻi i ka make ʻana o kahi keiki o ka ʻāina.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 5 o Nowemapa, he Pōʻakahi. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aola kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Ke emi iho nei nō nā mele a nā manu mūkīkī o Hawaiʻi nei. A pēlā pū me ka nui o ia mau manu o ka nāhelehele. Ma kekahi hana noiʻi i ke mele a ka ʻakekeʻe, ka ʻanianiau a me ka ʻamakihi o Kauaʻi, ua ʻike ʻia ke emi loa ʻana o nā kani like ʻole o ka ʻamakihi o Kauaʻi a me ka ʻanianiau mai ka makahiki 1975 a i kēia lā. Wahi a Kristina Paxton, ka mea nāna i alakaʻi i ka noiʻi ʻana, ʻo ke kumu i loli ai ke mele ʻana, ʻo ia ke emi loa ʻana o nā manu. Aʻo ka manu i kāna mau mele ma ka lohe ʻana i nā mākua a me nā manu ʻē aʻe o ka nāhelehele. Inā liʻiliʻi mai nā manu, liʻiliʻi mai nā mele a nā manu ʻōpio e aʻo mai ai a e haku ai hoʻi i kā lākou mau mele ponoʻī.

Aloha nō. Ua make ihola ʻo Vince Manuwai i ka Lāpule nei. He 38 wale nō ona makahiki. ʻO Manuwai kekahi o nā mea pāʻani laina kūlele ʻoi ma ka moʻolelo o ke Kulanui o Hawaiʻi. E neʻe ana ʻo ia i ke keʻena noho hou ma Kakaʻako, a i ke kakahiaka o ka Lāpule nei, i kona manawa e hoʻohikihiki ana i kāna mau mea i loko o ke keʻena noho, maʻule ihola ʻo ia. Lawe ʻia akula ʻo ia i ka Haukapila ʻo Straub, a ma laila ʻo ia kahi i hala ai i ke ao polohiwa a Kāne. I kēlā makahiki aku nei, ua nānā ʻia ʻo ia e ke kauka a loaʻa ke ʻano o ka maʻi puʻuwai, akā, ʻaʻole maopopo inā ʻo ia kona kumu i maʻule ai. Ua puka ʻo Manuwai mai ke Kula Kiʻekiʻe ʻo Farinatona i ka makahiki 1999, a lilo ihola i kūkahi no nā Koa Ānuenue o Hawaiʻi. A ma hope mai o kēlā, pāʻani ihola ʻo ia no nā Iākua o Iākonawila no nā makahiki he ʻewalu.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

E hoʻi ka waʻa; mai hoʻopaʻa aku i ka ʻino.

He noi kēia i kekahi, ʻaʻole e hana i ka hana e pilikia ai ʻo ia.
