Hui Makaainana o Makana and fishing rights, 2014.

Check out this story from one of the Hui Makaainana of today on Kauai! It is awesome to see we are thinking of not only today, but of yesterday and tomorrow as well!

Here is the link to coverage of the story found in the Garden Island¹ of today.

¹We have posted much older stories from this Kauai newspaper which began a hundred and ten years ago (1904); it was nice to link to a story from today!

Hui Makaainana Hawaii and the farming of kalo, 1939.

Planting Taro

THE ORGANIZATION HAS STARTED THIS EFFORT

The Hui Makaainana Hawaii has Begun to Work on Land at Kapiolani

The idea of farming of kalo thought up by the Hui Makaainana Hawaii is now being carried out, according to Johnson Kahili, the chairman of the managing committee [komite hoohana].

The organization received approval to do this on government land near Kapiolani School [ke Kula o Kapiolani], and should the work go well, then perhaps some twenty acres of undeveloped land, nearly four acres, will be farmed, according to him. Continue reading

Wallace Kuakapu Naope passes away, 1939.

GREW WEARY

Wallace K. Naope

In the evening of this past Friday, Wallace Kuakapu Naope grew weary of this world after being taken to the Hilo Memorial Hospital [Halemai Hoomanao o Hilo] after contracting Pneumonia [Numonia]. It was but a few hours after he was taken to the hospital that he passed away.

With his passing, lost is one of the icons in politics. He ran for the position of senator in the Democratic party a number of times, but he lost and the victory of the other candidates for senator was difficult and only by a slim margin.

Wallace Kuakapu Naope was born in South Kona, and was educated at Lahainaluna School. After leaving the school, he came to live in Hilo nei with his older brother Harry K. Naope who died earlier a little over a year ago, who was the great one amongst the choir leaders of all the choirs across the Archipelago. Continue reading

3 years… 2014.

It has been three years since the first post on this blog. I never imagined that I would be still on here after three years…  Has anyone made any connections as a result of one of these posts? Have you had any eureka moments?

In the online stats, I see hits from all over the world, but I am assuming that most are just bots. Is anyone outside of Hawaii nei really reading this blog?

And lastly for now, do you have any comments/suggestions?

On the Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital, 1914.

ASSISTANCE WANTED FOR THE HOSPITAL.

Because of a shortage of funds at the Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital, everyone living in this town is asked to give their assistance, as they are able, as per a flyer composed by the trustees of the hospital by way of W. O. Smith, the treasurer, and E. A. Mott-Smith, the chairman of the house committee.

From the inception of this children’s hospital until this past September, the number of patients hospitalized there reached about 1812, and most of them were in great difficulty.

The number of patients at the hospital in 1911 reached about 261; in 1912 there were 272; in 1913 there were 420; and this year, up until the 13th of October, there were 503.

With the proceeds, the expenses to run this hospital can be paid off until the end of the year; there is no way that there would be enough other than through receiving contributions from the public.

Aloha Niumalu i ka Uluwehi

No ka U-i i maalo i ke Kupulau.
