Speaking of Prendergast… 2013.

It is good to know if you are doing research on this name that the Hawaiianized version of Prendergast is Penikalaka. I am looking for a site that will host a database that will give alternate names for historical people, like Armstrong is Limaikaika, or Lincoln McCandless is Lina or Linekona Eliwai, and so forth. It would also be ideal if people could add to this list with a citation of where they found the alternate name. This would make for better/easier research in Hawaiian-language material, not just in newspapers.

Look Here at This Mele

MELE ALOHA AINA AI-POHAKU
[PATRIOTIC ROCK-EATING SONG]

1. Kaulana na pua o Hawaii
Kupaa mahope o ka aina,
Hiki mai ka elele a ka lokoino
Palapala alunu me ka pakaha

2. Pane mai Hawaii-Nui o Keawe
Kokua na Hono-a-Piilani
Kakoo mai Kauai o Mano
Pau pu me ke one o Kakuhihewa

3. Aole e kau e ka pulima
Maluna o ka pepa a ka enemi
Aole makou a e minamina
I ka puu dala a ke Aupuni

4. Ua lawa makou i ka pohaku
I ka ai kamahao o ka aina
Hoohuiaina kuai hewa
I ka pono kivila o ke kanaka

5. Mahope makou o Liliulani
A kau hou la i ke Kalaunu
Haina ia mai ana ka puana
Na pua i aloha i ka aina
