David Malo and a prediction, 1894.

The prediction of David Malo.

Nearly 50 years ago, after the sunday service was let out from the Wainee Church in Lahaina, while it was Davida Malo who gave the prayer that sunday, Kaahumanu said to Davida Malo, “Our missionaries are good.” Davida Malo then replied to Kaahumanu, “The missionaries of ours will conspire against us [kipi].

“Tsa! How will they revolt, being that it was they who brought the word of God?” To which Davida Malo answered, “Perhaps they will not revolt, but the children after them, and the grandchildren after them; they will be the rebels.

“And the Alii who is ruling as Monarch at the time, that Alii will stand bare. And the Nation built then, that is the Nation that will stand securely.”

How astonishing is this great foresight of David Malo! and everything he predicted [wanana] has come true, except one remains, and then everything will have come true.

And we believe that all of this will come true.

A mele by David Malo.

O Nupepa Kuokoa; Aloha oe:—Some subscribers of your newspaper have asked me to send in to you a mele by David Malo written for his wife, Pahia. And should it please you to print it once more, being that it is not offensive, and it is fine thing for the youth to read with aloha. Therefore. Here below is the mele:

Oia aloha kiai ka ula hailiaka,
I ke ohana lau opua haili aloha,
He-ae he aka,
He aka he haili aloha no kuu wahine eia e,
Kuu wahine mai ka ua lili lehua hee-koko,
Makau pili heekoko ula i ke kula,
Ula kana wai ula i Kanaha e,
Naha kaawale ka pili me ka wahine,
Me kuu wahine aloha i nalo aku la,
I hele hookahi aku nei aole,
Aole kuu hoa eia e,
Kuu hoa pili i ka ua ulalena,
He ua ulalena no Lilikoi,
Kuu wahine hoapili o ke anuanu,
Kuu hoa pupuuanu oia uka,
Oia aina koekoe ke noho,
E loku ana iloko o ka io ka hoi,
Ka li anu, haukeke a ka ua kiu,
I kahi a maua e noho ai,
Me kuu wahine i ka ua hamakualoa e, he loa e,
Loa wale hoi ka noho ana a ke aloha,
E kau ana ke aloha i kuu maka,
E haka loa nei no aole i pau,
Ke aloha o kuu wahine aole i nalo e eia e.

Kuakini, and Hawaiian tradition, 1845.

BIOGRAPHY OF KUAKINI.

Kuakini was the son of Keeaumoku, the son of Kalanikauleleiaiwi, the sister of Keawe. They are the royal ancestors of Hawaii Island’s high chiefs, Kuakini was befitting the class of high chiefs amongst Hawaii’s alii nui.

Kuakini was the son of Namahana who was born from Kalanikuihonoikamoku, and they are Maui’s royal ancestors, and therefore, Kuakini is amongst Maui’s…

…class of high chiefs; Kuakini was born as an alii.

Kuakini was born in the year 1792 perhaps; he was born in the year of [battle of] Kepuwahaulaula; at Keauhou in Kona in Hawaii was where he was born.

His caretaker [kahu hanai] was Kameheaiku, and Kuakini grew up at Keauhou, and he was made by his father, Keeaumoku, to pray to the wooden gods; this was Kuakini’s duties in his youth, the worship of the wooden gods.

He was the one who cared for all the temples in Kona, along with the Loulu temples, and in regard to his worshiping, one of the names Kuakini was called was Kiipalaoku, for Ku was the god for whom he would fetch pala fern.

Kuakini was a thinker from when he was small; he was meticulous; he often would sail boats with the other children in his youth, and when he grew up, he went with his parents to Maui, and thereafter he lived with Kamehameha I.

He became an aikane of Kamehameha I, because Kuakini possessed a fine body, he was skilled in English, he thought much about the way a body functions, he was sullen, and was a man of few words.

When Kamehameha I died, Liholiho them went to Oahu, and Kuakini was appointed Governor of Hawaii, and it was he that was to care for Hawaii until his recent death.

When Kuakini was assisting intently with the kingdom of God, it was he who built the great churches here on Hawaii Island.

O Armstrong [Limaikaika], please ask of Thurston [Tatina] or Bishop [Bihopa], for they know what he was like for both of them lived with him.

O Father Armstrong, I am living here on Hawaii these months, and will then return to Maui, or perhaps not. D. MALO.

[As mentioned by Kuamoolelo, here is the earliest published appearance of Malo’s famous kanikau for Kaahumanu. Unfortunately the image is not so legible, i had to go back to the original to check it. Hopefully one day soon, some entity will understand how important clear images of the newspapers are, and they will fund this priceless undertaking!!]

A DIRGE FOR KAAHUMANU.

In the Document by the Governor [George Robert Carter] to the current Legislature, he spoke of in the Document about David Malo, the single Hawaiian who had a excellent talent for writing. Britain is famed to this day for the high talent of Shakespeare; America is made famous because of the talent of Samuel Clemens [Mark Twain], and Hawaii was proud indeed in the year 1834, because of the great talent of D. Malo. After your writer searched for things written by D. Malo, this kanikau was found, composed by him for the queen, Kaahumanu, in 1834; and for the benefit of the new generations, we are reprinting that mele.
