Merrie Monarch, 2014.

It is heartening to hear the number of kumu that are saying that they or their haumana look at the historic Hawaiian-Language Newspapers! Hopefully in the near future, it will be something that need not be stated, because it will be something that is expected.

Charles Auld, Hula, and Hawaiian Civic Club of Hilo, 1941.

Hawaiian Civic Club


Charles H. (Moa) Auld has been chosen as the new president of the Hawaiian Civic Club [hui Kiwila Hawaii] of Hilo nei, one of the important youths here in Hilo of Hawaiian ancestry.

He was born in Honolulu, and was employed as an inspector of insects in the insects division of the department of agriculture and forestry [papa mahiai ame ululaau], in which he was employed for 10 years. He was educated at the Kamehameha Schools and at Punahou, and he graduated from Punahou in 1926. Thereafter he attended the University of Hawaii. In each of these schools he played football [kinipopo peku wawae].

He is a brother also of Aggie Auld, and expert in Hawaiian hula, and Mr. Auld himself is adept at it as well.
