Death of Abner Kuhooheiheipahu Paki, 1855.

The death of A. Paki, on the 13th of this June.

The chief A. Paki. He appears in the genealogy of the Chiefs of this Nation, from ancient times, and he is a high Chief of this land descended from Haloa, that being the one father of the children living in this world, and the father of our people.

Part of his genealogy is taken from the High Chiefs of the land, and he is part of Kamehameha’s, and he is part of Kiwalao’s, and he is a hereditary chief of a single line from ancient times; and he was a father who rescued from trouble his people of this nation from Hawaii to Kauai.

His accomplishments during his life. When he promised to stop drinking and to become a Christian, from that time on he did not drink alcohol again until the day he died.

He was a Chief who was steadfast in his work for the nation, and he was an Alii who would be furious when he heard his deceased child being spoken ill of, as well as of his children who survive him.

From what I have seen of this Alii while he was alive. In the year 1837, he began his governmental work, and at one point he was appointed Chief Justice [L. K. Kiekie] of the country, and at another point he served as Governor, and another time he was included in the Privy Council, and still another time he was the steward for his child, this during his lifetime.

Konia’s kanikau for Paki, 1855.

HE KANIKAU NO A. PAKI.

Kuu kane kaikunane ke aloha,
Mai ko maua wa uuku ka noho ana a hiki i keia manawa,
Aole hoi a’u kane, aole ana wahine,
Oia ko kaua noho ana a hele aku la oe,
Ke kanikau nei au me na keiki a kaua i ko aloha,
He aloha ia oe, e Kuhooheiheipahu,
Auwe no hoi kuu kaikunane mai ka makani o Lele he Maaa,
Mai na ale hulilua o Pailolo,
Ua hele o Kalanihelemailuna i ka hora eha i ka wanaao,
Ua haalele mai nei i ka pili a maua,
Kuu hoa no hoi o ka aina pilikia a kakou i ike ai,
Oia hoi ke Kaona nui ma Honolulu nei,
Ua hele hoi oe me ka makaukau,
Noho au me ka hemahema,
He kaumaha he luuluu he pilikia keia e noho nei,
Noho aku la oe i ka nani mau loa,
A kaua i huli ai me na keiki a kaua,
Uwe helu mai kana kaikamahine o Kalohelani,
Auwe no hoi kuu Makuakane leo ole—a,
Na’u ka olelo malaila wale mai no ia,
Aole no e pau ko’u kanikau ana ia oe no ko makou makua ole—a,
Ua paumako makou i ke aloha ia oe e ka Makua,
I ka make koke ana’ku nei—a,—
Aka o ka ne a ke Keiki Makua, aole ia L.

Funeral of Konia, 1857.

The Funeral of Konia.

The obsequies of the late chiefess Konia were performed on Tuesday, and notwithstanding the sickness which has been so general prevented numbers of persons from attending, the aggregate of those collected to show their respect on the occasion was very large, whilst the crowd that thronged both sides of the streets, as the procession moved along, was so great as to require a strong force to preserve the line of march from the late residence of the deceased lady to the Royal cemetery, in which the coffin was placed. The religious services were performed by the Rev. Mr. Clark, and the ceremony was conducted throughout with a decorum and feeling which was remarked by all present.

Death of Laura Kanaholo Konia, 1857.

On this past 2nd, L. Konia, the widow of A. Paki, died at 50 years of age. She was an alii nui, and was a child of Kaoleioku, and Kalaniopuu was the father of Kaoleioku, an actual cousin of the father of Kamehameha I. Konia was a loving chiefess, and her friends and all the people of this archipelago are very saddened for there is no high chiefess in this land remaining; they have all gone. Her friends weep with greatly pained hearts.

On the moving of the Na-ha Stone to Hilo Library 100 years ago, and its history (4 of 6), 1915.

As soon as Ululani heard these words of her children, she exited the house, and soon saw Kamehameha approaching, and that is when Ululani began a wailing call of love [uwe helu] and then she also called out the name song for Kamehameha with these words:

Au—we hoi—e, he mai hoi paha,
O oe ka ia e Kalaninuilanimehameha—a,
E hea aku ana i ka Iwa kiloulou moku la,
E komo e kuu Laninui hoi—a,
Ao i wehewehena ao i waihona—e,

Auau i ke kiowai kapu o Ponahakeone,
Ae inu hoi i ka awa a Kane i kanu ai i Hawaii,
A ola hoi ke kini o ke akua ia oe,
He mai hoi e kuu Laninuimehameha—a.

[Ah indeed, do come,
Might it be you, O Kalaninuilanimehameha?
I call out to the island-hooking Frigate bird,
Come in, my Heavenly Chief,
The day opens, the day closes,
In his night, this is the companion,
My lei of the Haao rains,
Soaring in the uplands of Auaulele,
Entering the home of Kealohalani,
Bathing in the sacred pool of Ponahakeone,
Drinking the awa which Kane planted in Hawaii,
The multitudes of the gods will live through you,
Come, my dear Laninuimehameha.] Continue reading
