Moe aku nei i ka moe kapu o Niolopua kekahi kanaka i aloha i ka ʻāina a me kona lāhui.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 2 o Kēkēmapa, he Pōʻalima. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Ua hele akula ʻo Noa Emmett Aluli i ke ala ʻula a Kanaloa. ʻO ia nei kekahi o nā kiaʻi mua e kūpaʻa ana i mea e pau ai ka hoʻopahū ʻia ʻana o Kahoʻolawe. ʻŌlelo mai nei ʻo Walter Ritte, he hoa kiaʻi no Aluli, he nui kona aloha i ka ʻāina a me ke kai a he nui nō hoʻi kona aloha i ke kanaka. Ua hānau ʻo Aluli ma Oʻahu, akā, ma hope o kona lilo i kauka i ka makahiki 1975, neʻe akula i Molokaʻi no ka hana ʻana ma ke ʻano he kauka. ʻO Aluli kekahi o ka papa mua o ke Kula Lapaʻau ʻo John A. Burns o ke Kulanui o Hawaiʻi. A ma Molokaʻi ʻo ia i pene ai. Nui nā hana a Aluli no ka pono o ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi. Ua hoʻokumu lāua ʻo Ritte i ka Hui Alaloa nāna i kūpaʻa no ka pono o nā lawaiʻa a me nā kānaka hahai holoholona o Molokaʻi. ʻO Aluli nō hoʻi kekahi o nā mea i hoʻokumu iā Protect Kahoʻolawe ʻOhana. Ua haʻalele mai ʻo Aluli i hope nei i kāna wahine iā Kauka Davianna McGregor; i kā lāua kaikamahine iā Rosie Alegado Kong; i kā lāua hūnōna iā Raymond Kong; i nā moʻopuna iā Justice lāua ʻo Cassius; a me ka ʻohana Aluli-McGregor.

I ka lā i nehinei, ua lawe ʻia mai nei kekahi ʻelemakule mai Reno mai a i Honolulu nei a hopu ʻia iho nei ma muli o kona hoʻopiʻi ʻia ʻana aku no ka pepehi kanaka ʻana i kekahi wahine ma Waikīkī i ka lā 7 o Ianuali o ka makahiki 1972. ʻO Tudor Chirila ʻŌpio kona inoa, a he 77 ona makahiki. Ua hoʻopiʻi ʻia ihola ʻo ia i ka lā 12 o Kepakemapa no ka pepehi kanaka ma ka ʻAha Hoʻokolokolo ʻĀpana o Honolulu. A i ka lā 13 o Kepakemapa, hopu ʻia aku nei e ka mākaʻi o Reno. Ma hope mai, hoʻopiʻi aku nei ke kiule nui o Oʻahu iā Chirila no ka hewa pepehi kanaka kekelē ʻelua i ka lā 23 o Kepakemapa. He 26 makahiki o Chirila i kona wā i hoʻomake ai Nancy Elaine Anderson.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

ʻEliʻeli kūlana o ʻĀinaʻike.

He ʻōlelo kēia no ke kanaka i mahalo ʻia kona ʻike kūliʻu.
