Donations, 2018 and beyond.

Aloha kakou,

People continue to ask where donations for this blog should be sent. The answer still remains the same. What would be worthwhile is that if you think these posts are worth anything to anyone you know, to pass them on, whether by reposting them electronically on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, or by email; or by printing them out and handing them off; or the old-fashioned way, by talking about them.

However, if you indeed want to make donations, please consider making a donation to the Library & Archives at the Bishop Museum! They care for much of the newspapers from which I draw my information. They also are the caretakers of journals and letters and books and oh so many photographs containing historical information that cannot be found anywhere else. Remember to specify that your donation is to go to the Library & Archives.

On kake and Kauikeaouli and Kalama and Kaahumanu, 1896.

[Found under: “NA WAHI PANA A KAULANA O HONOLULU, OAHU NEI, I UHIIA I KA LEPO A NALOWALE LOA HOI I KEIA AU HOU.”]

KAHALEULUHE

5.—Kahaleuluhe was where the Anglican Church stands today, and its stature is hard to picture today. This was a Royal residence during the time of Kamehameha III, the kindhearted Alii who was shown affection through words of kake, because of the fear Kalama had lest she be killed by Kaahumanu and Kinau, Continue reading

Queen Liliuokalani is arrested: her crime—having aloha for her lahui, 1895.

Mai Wakinekona a Iolani Hale.

Ia’u e nanea ana ma Wakinekona,
Pa-e ana ka leo nahenahe,
Auhea wale ana oe e Kalani,
Ei ae na hauna o ke Aupuni,
Nana e hanu mai pau i ka ikea,
Na mea nui, na mea liilii,

Words of advice from a concerned Hawaiian, 1944.

SINGING HAWAIIAN SONGS

Editor The Advertiser:

As a Hawaiian I enjoy listening to the sweet Hawaiian music on my radio from 7:30 a.m. to midnight. But I agree with many other Hawaiians who I have heard complain about our young peoples singing nowadays. Perhaps there might be a way to help these young generation and also the future generations keep up the proper way of singing our beloved Hawaiian songs and not to murder them or change them as they are being changed by jazzing or perhaps boogle them. Why not keep them as the composer intended to express their feelings. For example the song, “Kahuahuai.” It is not a war chant. It’s a love song telling of their love for each other and how they had weathered the cold together among the fragranted ferns, etc. Continue reading

Another sweet song for Liliuokalani, 1897.

I hear strains tonight of Makalapua!

nupepa

MAKALAPUA.

O Makalapua ulumahiehie,
O ka lei o Kamakaeha,
No Kamakaeha ka lei o na Liawahine,
No na wahine kihene pua.

Hui:—E lei ho–i e Liliulani e,
E lei ho–i e Liliulani e.

Haihai pua Kamani pauku pua Ki-ki,
I lei hoowehi no ka wahine,
I walea ai i ka waokele,
Iuka o Omaonahele.

Lei Kaala i ka ua a ka Naulu,
Hoolue ihola ilalo o Haleauau,
Ka ua lei kakooula i ke pili,
I pili ia e ka mauu nene me ke kupukupu.

Lei aku i na hala o Kekele,
Na hala moe ipo o Malailua,
Ua maewa wale i ke oho o ke Kawelu,
Ka lei Kamakahala a ka ua i Waahila.
