E hoʻihoʻi ʻia ana kekahi mau iwi kupuna i Hawaiʻi nei.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 9 o Pepeluali, he Pōʻakolu. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Ua hoʻomaka ihola ka hoʻihoʻi ʻia ʻana mai o kekahi mau iwi kupuna he 58 i ka Pōʻalua nei. Aia nō kekahi mau ʻelele o ke Keʻena Kuleana Hawaiʻi i ʻEulopa no ka hoʻihoʻi ʻana mai o kekahi mau hale hōʻikeʻike a me kekahi mau kulanui o Kelemānia a me kekahi hale hōʻikeʻike o ʻAukekulia i nā iwi kupuna. Na ka Hale Hōʻikeʻike o Ubersee i hoʻihoʻi mai nei he ʻewalu iwi poʻo i nehinei. I loaʻa nā iwi kupuna i ia mau hale hōʻikeʻike me nā kulanui iā Hermann Otto Finsch. Ma kahi o ka makahiki 1880, ua hele mai ʻo Finsch i Hawaiʻi nei a ʻo nā iwi i loaʻa iā ia ma kona mau mokupuni i hele ai, ʻohi ihola ʻo ia a lawe pū me ia i kona ʻāina. E kamaʻilio ʻia ana ka hoʻihoʻi ʻia ʻana mai o ia mau iwi kupuna mai ka makahiki 2017.

Aloha nō. He kanaka Pāʻele hou kai kī pū ʻia e ka mākaʻi a make ma Minneapolis i kēlā Pōʻakolu aku nei. ʻO Amir Locke kona inoa. A nui aʻela nā kānaka e kūʻē ana ma ka māki ʻana ma ke kaona i ka Pōʻaono nei. He palapala hopu kā ka mākaʻi no kekahi kanaka, a komo wale nā mākaʻi i loko o kekahi keʻena noho, kahi e hiamoe ana ʻo Locke. Hoʻomaka lākou e ʻuā, “Mākaʻi, he palapala hopu.” Peku ʻia ka noho moe a Locke e hiamoe ana. I kona puoho ʻana, ʻike ʻia kahi pū, a ʻo kona kī ʻia aʻela nō ia he ʻekolu manawa a ʻoi. ʻO Minneapolis nō hoʻi kahi i make ai ʻo George Floyd iā Derek Chauvin. He mākaʻi ʻo Chauvin i ia manawa.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

E kuahui like i ka hana.

ʻO ia hoʻi, e alu like.
