Kaiehu ʻia iho nei kekahi mau luna o ka Hale Hōʻikeʻike o Kamehameha.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 13 o Ianuali, he Pōʻalima. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Holo ihola ka manaʻo o ka papa alakaʻi o ka Hale Hōʻikeʻike o Kamehameha, e kaiehu ʻia kekahi mau luna ʻekolu. I holo ka manaʻo pēlā ma muli o ka noiʻi ʻana i loko o kahi hana o laila. ʻO nā luna i kaiehu ʻia, ʻo ia ka Luna Hoʻokō Nui Melanie Ide, ka Luna Aʻoaʻo Barron Oda a me ka Hope Pelekikena o ka Lawelawe Hana Wesley “Kaiwi” Yoon. A pau koke ihola kā lākou lā hana ʻana ma laila. A no laila, ke ʻimi akula ka Hale Hōʻikeʻike i Luna Hoʻokō Nui hou a ʻo ka hā kēia o ka manawa ma nā makahiki ʻehiku i kaʻa hope aku nei. Ma hope o ke kau ʻaha ʻōlelo o ka makahiki 2022, kūkala aʻela ka Hale Hōʻikeʻike o Kamehameha, hoʻokaʻawale ʻia he $17.5 miliona nona e ke aupuni, he $7.5 miliona no ka lawelawe hana, a he $10 miliona no ka hoʻoponopono hale a hoʻomaikaʻi nō hoʻi.

I ka Pōʻalua nei, hoʻohiamoe loa ʻia iho nei kekahi mau kika Kumakala ma ke Kahua Hōʻikeʻike Holoholona Laka ʻOle o Honolulu. ʻO nā inoa o lāua, ʻo Seattle lāua ʻo Chrissie. Ua loaʻa lāua i ka maʻi hakuʻala. ʻO Sitala, he kāne, a he ʻumi kūmālima ona makahiki. Ua hānau ʻo ia ma ke Kahua Hōʻikeʻike Holoholona Laka ʻOle ma ke Kūlanakauhale o nā ʻĀnela. A i ka lā ʻeiwa o Iune o ka makahiki nei, lawe ʻia maila i Honolulu nei mai ke kahua mai o Batona Rusa ʻoiai naʻe ua oʻo a loaʻa ʻo ia i ka maʻi hakuʻala.  A ʻo Kiliki, he wahine, a he iwakālua kūmākolu ona makahiki. Ua hānau ʻo ia ma ke Kahua Hōʻikeʻike Holoholona Laka ʻOle ʻo Smithsonian. Ua hānau ihola nāna he ʻekolu keiki ma ka makahiki 2008 ma ke Kahua o Honolulu. Lapaʻau ʻia ʻo Kiliki no ka maʻi hakuʻala he ʻumi kūmālua makahiki a ʻoi.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Hāʻule i ka hope waʻa.

He ʻōlelo kēia no ke kanaka i hiki lohi mai.
