Alexander Minoaka Thoene has been elected kahuna nui of Hui Oiwi, the Hawaiian club, at the Kamehameha School for Boys. Minoaka, who is a senior, has been a member of the club since 1939. Norman Lunahooponopono Rosehill has been chosen kahuna, and William Kahuelani Stewart is now the club’s kakauolelo. Howard Kalani Benham has been chosen puuku and Edwin Mahiai Beamer has been re-elected alakai himeni.
Hui Oiwi o Kamehameha was founded in 1931 by Mr. Donald Kilolani Mitchell. The purpose of the Hui Oiwi is expressed in its motto, “E malama ia na pono o ka aina e na opio.” The traditions of the race are preserved by its young people. The club climaxed its eleventh successful year last spring with a luau on the school campus.
