E kau ana kekahi mau Hawaiʻi Alakaʻi i hala ma ka hano hāweo.

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

Ma nā hapahā ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa e hana ʻia ana i kēia makahiki aʻe, e hoʻohanohano ʻia aʻe ana kekahi mau wāhine ʻelima. E kau ana ko lākou helehelena maka ma ka hapahā. A ʻo kekahi o ia mau wāhine, ʻo ia ʻo Edith Kanakaʻole. He Hawaiʻi Alakaʻi ʻo ia i aloha nui ʻia. A nui kāna mau hana i mea e hoʻomau ʻia ai nā moʻolelo a me nā hana mai nā kūpuna mai. Hoʻomaka ihola ke kau ʻana o ka helehelena maka o kekahi mau wāhine ʻelima ma ka hapahā i kēia makahiki nei.

He kiʻi ʻoniʻoni huʻe ʻoiaʻiʻo hou no kekahi kanaka kaulana o Hawaiʻi nei. ʻO Duke Paoa Kahanamoku ka mea nona ia kiʻi ʻoniʻoni, a kapa ʻia ihola ʻo Waterman. I kēia lā nō e hoʻomaka ai kona hoʻolele ʻia ʻana ma nā hale kiʻi ʻoniʻoni. Aia ana ma nā Hale Kiʻi ʻOniʻoni ʻo Consolidated ma Oʻahu nei; ma ke Kikowaena Kūʻai ʻo Kaʻahumanu ma Maui; ma ka Hale Kiʻi ʻOniʻoni ʻo Palace ma Hilo; ma Regal Makalapua ma Kona; a me ka Hale Kiʻi ʻOniʻoni ʻo Waimea ma Kauaʻi. E hoʻolele ʻia ana a ka lā 9 o Mei.

Ua māhuahua aʻe nō nā kānaka i make i ka ulia kaʻa ma Hawaiʻi nei i kēia makahiki nei. Mai ka lā mua o Ianuali a i ka lā 30 o Malaki, he 35 make ulia kaʻa. Ma ka wā like o kēlā makahiki aku nei, he 24 wale nō make ulia kaʻa. ʻO nā make he 35 o kēia makahiki nei, he 18 o lākou, he mea e kau ana ma luna o ke kaʻa, he 6 mau koʻele wāwae, he 6 mau kānaka holo mokokaikala a mopeka paha, a he ʻelima mau mea holo paikikala.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Hāʻupu mauna kilohana i ka laʻi.

He ʻōlelo mahalo kēia i ke kanaka kau i ka hano hāweo.
