'Auhea 'oukou e nā hoa heluhelu o ka 'ōlelo 'ōiwi o nēia pae mokupuni. He mea maopopo iā kākou ke 'ano o ia mea 'o ke au 'ana o ka manawa. 'A'ohe mea nāna ia e ho'okū. Eia na'e, ua hiki mai nō nā mea hou o ka 'āina nāna e kōkua iā kākou i ka mālama 'ana i nā 'ike kahiko i loa'a wale ai i nā keiki o kēia au ke lālau aku. 'O ka pa'i wikiō 'ana kekahi ala e ho'oili ai i nā 'ike i pa'a i ko kākou po'e mai kekahi hanauna a i kekahi hanauna aku, a he ala ho'i ia e hiki ai iā kākou ke 'ike maka i ko lākou lā helehelena a lohe pepeiao i ko lākou mau mana'o. Eia hou ho'i, i ala nō ia e pa'a ai ka 'ike o ko kēia wā a mālama no nā hanauna e hiki mai ana.

I ka pō Pō'ahā nei, 'o ko'u hele ia i ka Hālau o Haumea, kahi e nānā ai i ka 'umi o ke ki'i'oni'oni i ho'opuka 'ia e Eddie lāua 'o Myrna Kamae i kapa 'ia Those Who Came Before, a i ho'opuka 'ia ma lalo o ka Hawaiian Legacy Series. Ma mua na'e o ka hō'ike 'ia mai o ke ki'i'oni'oni, ua mālama 'ia he pānela no kahi po'e hana ki'i'oni'oni e hō'ike ai i ko lākou mau mana'o no ka waiwai o ia hana. Nui ko'u mahalo i ka 'ike hou 'ana iā Puhipau lāua me Joan, ka po'e nona 'o Nā Maka o ka 'Āina a nāna i pa'i aku he kanaiwa a 'oi ki'i e pili ana i nā 'ano paio like 'ole o nā Hawai'i no ka pono. E kala loa ko'u 'ike 'ana iā lāua a i ka lohe 'ana i ka 'ōlelo a Puhipau, hāli'a ka mana'o i ka wā i māhanahana ai ka paio 'ana. Aloha nō ia mau lā.

Ma mua o ka hō'ike 'ia mai o Those Who Came Before, ua hānai 'ia mai ke anaina i kekahi mau 'īna'i e nā ai ka 'ono a ka pu'u. 'O ia nō kekahi mau ki'i pōkole i haku 'ia a pa'i 'ia e nā haumāna o ka papa HWST 362 i a'o 'ia e Kimo Armitage, a i kapa 'ia 'o He Aha ka Waiwai a 'o Ho'okalakupua, a me kekahi ki'i Kāmoa i hana 'ia e Robert lāua me Daniel Poleki i kapa 'ia 'o Malaga. He keu ka hau'oli i ka 'ike 'ana i ke kālena o ka po'e 'ōpio e 'a'a nei i ia hana.

No ke ki'i a Eddie me Myrna Kamae, ua hō'ike 'ia ka po'e kūpuna nānā i waiho mai i ko lākou 'ike a me ko lākou mana'o no nā mele Hawai'i a nāna ho'i i kōkua iā Eddie ma loko o kāna hana a me kona huaka'i ho'ona'auao no ke mele Hawai'i. Ua hoihoi kona mo'olelo, no ka mea, ma kona ho'omaka 'ana i ka ho'okani pila, 'a'ole 'o ia i ho'okani i nā mele Hawai'i, a 'o kona makuakāne kai koikoi iā ia e huli aku a nānā i kona ho'oilina. A no laila, ua 'imi akula 'o ia i ka 'ike e pono ai ka haku 'ana i kāna mau mele Hawai'i. 'O Mrs. Pukui, 'o Pilahi Paki, 'o Iolani Luahine, a 'o Sam Li'a kekahi o kāna mau kumu nāna i alaka'i iā ia ma kēia huaka'i.

Ma loko o kona a'o 'ia e kēia po'e kaulana i ka haku mele, ua kupu mai kekahi ha'awina nui. 'O ka 'ike nui ia a lākou i waiho maila. 'O ia ho'i, he mea nui ka hīmeni 'ana no nā kamali'i. He mana'o maika'i nō ia, no ka mea, i hoihoi nā kamali'i 'o ia nō ka mea e mau ai ia 'ike, a pēia nō ho'i nā 'ike Hawai'i he manomano a lehulehu.
