[This appears on the very first issue of the paper, on the first column of the first page.
I am posting this in response to a question from Meleanna Aluli Meyer, which is in turn responding to one of my first posts. You would imagine that Ke Aloha Aina was based in Hilo, but we can see here that it was indeed based out of Honolulu nei.]
(Aloha Aina, 5/25/1895, p. 1)
Nawahi wrote, spoke, painted and published yet a collection of his work I can not find. Does anyone know where I might find such a collection? I’m sure a complete editorial or article or speech must be preserved somewhere.
A good place maybe to start is with the biography of Joseph Nawahiokalaniopuu written by Kahikina Kelekona. “Ka Buke Moolelo o Hon. Joseph K. Nawahi,” was first printed partially in the Hawaiian-Language Newspaper, Ke Aloha Aina, in 1906, and then later on as a book in 1908. It has since been reset and reprinted and put in modern orthography by Hale Kuamoo in 1996.
Other than the book would you have any other idea where we could find more of his articles in the ke aloha aina nupepa?
