Chicken or egg? Did this come before the still popular mele, “Kukuna o ka La”? 1921.

HULA HA’I MEAHOU.

O ke anuenue ko’u papale,
Hokuwelowelo ko’u lipine.
Hae ka ilio ma Puuloa,
He alahula ia na Kaahupahau.
Nanea i ka holo a ke kaaahi,
Ua like me ka lio waha uaua.
Ka ihona au a o Kekele,
Ike i ka nani a o Kilohana.
Hele kuu hoa a maeele,
Aole wai e maalili ai. Continue reading

Let’s move forward, and not backward. 1897.

[Found under: “KE ALEALE NEI KA WAI.”]

All the while the circle of annexationists are reviling the Asians, they majority of them are employing those people as servants. How are you being deceived of the truth of their desires, O United States of America? What hypocrites!

(Makaainana, 2/8/1897, p. 4)

Aloha all,

I have been asked where donations for this blog should be sent. I am not asking for money. I am just doing this blog on the side when time permits. What would be worthwhile is if you think the posts are worth anything to anyone you know, to pass it on, whether by reposting them electronically on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, or by email; or printing them and handing them off; or the old-fashioned way, by talking about them.

However, if you indeed want to make donations, please consider making them to the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, Library and Archives! They hold much of the newspapers that I get my information from. They also are the caretakers of journals and letters and books containing historical information that cannot be found anywhere else. Do not forget to designate that your gift is to go to the Library and Archives.

Mahalo,

A set of mele including “E aha ia ana o Maunakea,” composed by Lioe Kaanaana of Waimea for Ane Bell, 1894.

[The title is illegible in the digital copy. Hopefully all of the newspapers can get clearly scanned one day before it is too late.]*

Hanohano Mana i ka uhiwai
Haaheo i ka liko o ka mamane
O ka noe a ka ua kikoni ili
Me he la o kuu aloha kekahi
Akahi ka manao a hoonioni
E uila ke aloha pili me au
Heaha nei hana a ka nui manu
Hauwalaau nei puni Waimea
Aohe hana a ka wai koiawe
Lana malie i ka poli o Malio
Ua like a like me ke Aniani
Ka alohi i ke alo a o Maukele
Haina ia mai ana ka puana
O Ane ka wahine no e ka lei.
