Calendar 2022

It has been a while since I made a calendar. The new year is almost here and I wanted to once again send you a new alemanaka following the original one put out by the Aloha Aina newspaper in 1906. Feel free to print it out for yourself or to share it with friends. To download the PDF file from which you can print, simply click on the image below.

Keaomelemele, 2021!

Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke XXIII, Helu 36, Aoao 1. Sepatemaba 6, 1884.

It has been 137 years since the famous Composer of  Stories Moses Manu first published the story of Keaomelemele in Ka Nupepa Kuokoa. The story was translated by Mary Kawena Pukui many years ago and was first published in Hawaiian and English in 2002. It has been out of print for years.

I just heard that Bishop Museum Press has finally received reprints of the book and it is now available for purchase! Click the image below to be taken to the Bishop Museum Press page where you can order a copy today.

Haleakala Hale, residence of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, 1866.

Pertaining to Haleakala Hale—The roof of the house Haleakala at Aigupita, the town home of one of our young chiefs, B. Pauahi Bishop, is being redone. The wooden shingles have been pried off and slate shingles are being laid. This house was built by the late A. Paki, with the thought that a second story would be built like the Palace, but this was not fulfilled until this era.
