Yesterday, the smell of ink and paper, and the echo of the printing press, 1913.

With the death of David Kaukaha Kanewanui, the rest of the fishing descriptions are now lost. 1902.

Because of the amount of new items, some regular columns were put aside and the new things were put in their place.

[With the new editor of the Kuokoa, the paper’s focus changed. This short paragraph is all there was that i could find to explain the abrupt ending to the column. David Kanewanui, i am sure, would have completed the priceless fishing descriptions and would have gone on to do so much more. Don’t play with guns…]

Bound years of the Kuokoa for sale, 1865.

BOUND KUOKOA.

THREE BOOKS—VOLUMES 1, 2 AND 3.

Ten Dollars

is the price for the three books. For one book is $3.50. Inquire at the Book store of H. M. WHITNEY [H. M. WINI].

[For a fee, you could take your year of newspapers to be bound at the end of the year, or they would be sold bound like these Kuokoa. Thanks the this binding, we are left with many full sets of newspapers! However, when they microfilmed the bound newspapers years ago, many were so tightly sewn that the bound side of the pages are illegible because they fall in a shadow. Hopefully funding can be found to have these newspapers unbound by an expert so the pages can be photographed clearly!]

Hawaiians abroad and the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers, 1867.

“Let’s subscribe to the Newspaper

Kuokoa, the Greatest Prize of the
Hawaiian Nation.”

VALLECITO, CALAVERAS COUNTY,

CALIFORNIA, March 25, 1867.

O My friends of the forests of California, “Let’s subscribe to the Newspaper Kuokoa, the Greatest Prize of the Hawaiian Nation,” that is the ongoing Volume VI of the year 1867, being that Volume V of this past year, is over, with the last week of December; we are grateful for its patient work done for us; it was not uncertain or hesitant of all the parcels sent upon it, but it persevered upon the surging billows of the Pacific Ocean until reaching this towering lands upon which we live. And thus we see the news of this sort and that, and the history of Kamehameha I., that is being published by the famed S. M. Kamakau in the Kuokoa. Therefore, don’t hold back, don’t scrimp, don’t be greedy, don’t be covetous, don’t surly, don’t scowl, don’t look to the side, don’t look away, don’t turn you back; lest these lines by the enlightened by applied to us. (Dark Africa, ignorant Asia), and so, let’s act quickly so that we can see the news of the world. I am done, aloha to you all. With thanks.

MOSES NAEHOLA.

[For more on the serial by S. M. Kamakau, see: Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii, Tales and Traditions of the People of Old, Ka Po’e Kahiko: The People of Old, The Works of the People of Old, Ke Kumu Aupuni, and Ke Aupuni Mō‘ī.

As for Moses Naehola, does anyone know if this is the same person as Moses Nahora, who is also living in California during the same period?

One more thing… This article has an awesome listing of negative attributes (which by no means are adequately translated here). ]
