Mihi kekahi kenekoa i kāna ʻōlelo hoʻokae ʻili ʻino,

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 5 o Mei, he Pōʻakolu. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

I kēlā pule aku nei, ʻōlelo ihola ke Kenekoa Lorraine Inouye, he paʻakikī kona ʻae ʻana he ʻoiaʻiʻo ia mea ʻo ka ʻāina i kāʻili ʻia mai ke aupuni Mōʻī a he mau ʻāina ia i kāʻili ʻia mai nā ʻŌiwi Hawaiʻi. A ʻōlelo nō hoʻi ʻo ia, ʻaʻole loa ia mau mea he ʻoiaʻiʻo. I ka Pōʻalua nei, ua hōʻike ʻia kekahi ʻōlelo a Inouye e ʻōlelo ana, ua huki ʻia kāna ʻōlelo mai ka pōʻaiapili i hoʻopuka ʻia ai ia mau ʻōlelo. A ʻo ia ke kumu i lilo ai ia mau ʻōlelo i mea e ʻeha ai ka naʻau o ka poʻe Hawaiʻi. A mihi ihola nō hoʻi ʻo ia i kāna mau ʻōlelo. I ka lā 28 o ka mahina ʻo ʻApelila, kākau ihola ʻo Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi i leka iā Ron Kouchi, ka Pelekikena o ka ʻAha Kenekoa, me ka ʻōlelo ʻana, he ʻōlelo hoʻokae ʻili ʻino kā Inouye, a koi akula i ka nuku iā ia a e kāpae ʻia ʻo ia mai kona kūlana poʻo kōmike. A ua noi nō hoʻi i mihi. A ʻo ia paha ke kumu a Inouye i mihi ai. Akā, wahi a Healani Sonoda-Pale, ka waha ʻōlelo o Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi, kaumaha ihola ʻo ia i ka pane aloha ʻole a ke kenekoa. A he pono ke kenekoa ke ʻae i ka ʻoiaʻiʻo o ka moʻolelo o ka lāhui Hawaiʻi. He nui nā wahi e aʻo mai ai no ka moʻolelo o nā ʻāina i kāʻili ʻia mai ke aupuni Mōʻī a me ka hoʻokahuli aupuni. A ʻoiai he luna ʻo ia i koho ʻia e ka lehulehu, ʻaʻohe kumu e naʻaupō ai pēlā.

Lilo aku nei ka inoa moho pōpō paʻipaʻi o ka ʻAhahui Kula Uku o Honolulu i nā kāne o ka Punahou i ka pō Pōʻalua nei. Suipa lilo iho nei ʻo Punahou iā Kamehameha, he 25 i ka 17 ma ka pāʻani mua, a he 25 i ka 11 ma ka pāʻani ʻelua. I ke kau nei i hala, ʻaʻole i hāule iki ʻo Punahou. He ʻehiku hoʻopio a Keau Thompson. A ʻo Nate Loose, he ʻelima āna hoʻopio, he ʻekolu āna paku. A he ʻeki nō hoʻi kāna. ʻO Aidan Tune, he ʻekolu āna hoʻopio a hoʻokahi āna ʻeki. ʻO Ryder Hsiung, he ʻelua āna hoʻopio a ʻelua āna paku. ʻO Noa Haine, he ʻekolu āna hoʻopio a he ʻelua hānai. A ʻo Keegan Au Yuen, he 18 āna hānai a ʻelua hoʻopio.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

E kuhikuhi pono i nā au iki a me nā au nui o ka ʻike.

E aʻo ʻia nā mea like ʻole i pili i ke kumuhana, ʻo nā mea nui a me nā mea iki kekahi.
