ʻO ka Merrie Monarch, e ʻike hou ʻia aku ana i kēia makahiki aʻe.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 3 o Kēkēmapa, he Pōʻalima. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Piha hauʻoli ka naʻau o ko Hawaiʻi a me ko ka honua nei paha. E mālama hou ʻia ana ka Hoʻokūkū Hula ʻo ka Merrie Monarch i kēia makahiki aʻe. Ma ʻApelila nō e mālama ʻia ai ka hoʻokūkū. ʻAʻole naʻe e kūʻai ʻia ana ka likiki i ka lehulehu. A no laila, ʻaʻole e hoʻouna ʻia ke noi kūʻai kikiki ma ka leka e like me ka mea maʻa mau ma nā makahiki i hala. ʻŌlelo aʻela ʻo Luana Kawelu, ka pelekikena o ka Merrie Monarch, e hāʻawi ʻia ana nā likiki i nā hālau e hoʻokūkū ana a e hāʻawi ʻia aku ana i nā kānaka a me nā hui e kākoʻo ana i ka hoʻokūkū ma nā makahiki he nui i kaʻa hope aku nei.

E ʻike hou ʻia ana nā Koa Ānuenue ma ke kahua pāʻani. Ua kono ʻia ka hui pōpō pekupeku o ke Kulanui o Hawaiʻi i kekahi hoʻokūkū. ʻO ke Pola Hawaiʻi paha ia hoʻokūkū. He ʻeono lanakila a Hawaiʻi a he ʻehiku hāʻule, no laila, ʻaʻole i kō ke koina e komo ai i ke pola hoʻokūkū. Akā, ua hana ʻia he pola hou, a ʻo ia ke kumu i lilo ai ke kono iā Hawaiʻi. E kūʻē aku ana paha lākou iā Memphis ma ke Ahiahi Kalikimaka ma ke Kāhua Pāʻani ʻo Ching. ʻO kahi mea minamina no Hawaiʻi, ʻaʻole e pāʻani ana ʻo Chevan Cordeiro, ka ʻalihikūlele, a me Dae Dae Hunter, ka ʻāholo. Ua holo ko lāua manaʻo, e ʻimi i kulanui hou e pāʻani pōpō pekupeku ai.

Aia nō kekahi mau Wāhine Ānuenue ke kau aʻela ma ka hano hāweo. Ua koho ʻia ʻo Brooke Van Sickle, ʻo ia ka mea pāʻani pōpō paʻipaʻi ʻoi o ka makahiki o ka ʻAhahui Komohana Nui. A koho ʻia ʻo Robyn Ah Mow, ʻo ia ke kumu aʻo ʻoi o ka makahiki o ia ʻahahui. I kēia lā, e kūʻē aku ana nā Wāhine Ānuenue iā Mikikipi Mokuʻāina ma ka puni mua o ka Hoʻokūkū Inoa Moho o ka ʻAhahui ʻĀlapa o nā Kulanui o ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Paʻa ka moku i ka heleuma.

He ʻōlelo kēia no ke kanaka i male ʻia
