Welina mai e nā makamaka heluhelu, ua lohe aku nei paha 'oukou i ka nūhou e pili ana i ka pilikia o ka 'ahamele o Stevie Wonder. Ha'i mai nei kekahi hoa, “Kainō 'o Stevie Wonder ka mea makapō, a he mau maka 'ike ko Jim Donovan, eia kā, he mau hoa makapō nō paha lāua 'elua.” 'Ae, pololei, ua 'āpuka mai kekahi kanaka iā Donovan ma ka 'ōlelo 'ana mai, e mālama 'ia ana ka 'ahamele o Stevie Wonder i mea e ho'oulu kālā ai no ka pono o nā 'ālapa o ke Kulanui o Hawai'i, 'a'ole na'e i hiki i ua kanaka lā ke ho'okō. Wahi a kekahi, “I hewa nō iā Donovan, 'oiai, 'a'ole 'o ia i noi'i pono aku.” Akā, e ho'oponopono koke 'ia ia pilikia. Eia mai ka ha'ina, inā 'a'ole e ho'iho'i 'ia ke kālā a nā kānaka a pau i uku ai no ke kikiki, na Donovan e uku mai loko mai o kona uku makahiki pono'ī. A 'o ia ihola.

'O ka pilikia i pū'iwa ai ka no'ono'o o ko 'oukou mea kākau, a me ka nui paha o 'oukou, 'o ia ka hopu 'ia 'ana o ke kolu o nā mea pā'ani kinipōpō pekupeku o ke Kulanui o Hawai'i no ke kalaiwa 'ana ma lalo o ka malu o ka wai 'ona. 'Ae, 'o ke kolu ia. 'O Cayman Shutter ka mua ma ka mahina 'o Malaki o kēia makahiki nei. 'O kona ho'opa'i, 'o ia ho'i, ua ho'omalu 'ia 'o ia, 'a'ole e pā'ani ma nā ho'okūkū mua 'ehā o ke kau. Kainō, he ho'opa'i ia e pau ai ia 'ano hana hūpō, eia kā, ua kalaiwa i mua a i hope paha kekahi mau hoa pōpō peku o Shutter ma hope o ka inu 'ana i ka wai 'awa'awa. 'O ia mau hoa, 'o ia 'o Alema Tachibana lāua 'o Alex Dunnachie. 'O ka 'oia'i'o, 'a'ole maopopo ke kū 'ana o ka hewa iā lāua, a me ke kū 'ole 'ana paha, koe aku ia. E kū ana 'o Tachibana i mua o ka luna kānāwai i ka lā 16 o Iulai, a 'o Dunnachie, ma hope aku.

'Eā, 'a'ole au he ‘ālapa, akā, inā he 'ālapa nō au, a ua ho'opa'i 'ia kekahi o ko'u mau hoa pā'ani ma muli o kona kalaiwa 'ana aku ma lalo o ka malu o ka wai 'ona, 'a'ole nō au e inu hou i ka wai 'ona a pau ke kau pōpō peku. A inā he puni nō i ka inu wai 'ona a i ka wai pipi'i ho'i, 'a'ole loa au e kalaiwa aku i ke ka'a. 'A'ole paha au e kau iki ma luna o ke ka'a ma ia kau holo'oko'a, 'o ke ko'ele wāwae ka mea e hiki pono aku ai i nā wahi a pau.

'O kekahi mea i pū'iwa ai ka no'ono'o o ko 'oukou mea kākau, 'a'ole wale nō ia he kānāwai no ka hui pōpō peku o ke Kulanui o Hawai'i, he kānāwai ia no nā kānaka a pau ma Hawai'i nei, 'o ia ho'i, 'a'ole e kalaiwa ke kanaka ke pulu ‘o ia i ka wai a ka nāulu ('ona). No laila, 'a'ole ia he kānāwai hou a Norm Chow e ho'okō aku nei, he kānāwai ia no nā makahiki he nui.

I mua, e nā pōki'i, a inā e inu 'oe i ka wai 'awa'awa, i ka wai lohi, a i ka wai pipi'i paha, ma luna wale nō o nā wa'a kaulua he 'umi ihu e hele aku ai.

Mahalo iā 'oukou no ka heluhelu 'ana mai. Ke ho'i aku nei ko Mānoa keiki, ua ahiahi.

Wow! It never occurred to me that "ka wai 'awa'awa" might be a metaphorical name for beer. So, does this mean that at the Battle Kepaniwai, when Kamehameha The Great shouted "I mua, e nā pōki'i, e inu i ka wai 'awa'awa", he was actually telling his warriors to go forward and drink beer? Gosh, I never knew about that! Or maybe he was revving them up for battle by telling them that after they win the battle then they can go out drinking.

But there's another part to what Kamehameha said -- the next sentence he spoke serves as warning today to all who go out and drink too much booz: "'A'ohe hope e ho'i mai ai" which means -- afterward there's no turning back. So, metaphorically, you won't be coming back.

Putting both parts of Kamehameha's exhortation together, and using the metaphorical interpretation, Kamehameha's famous two-sentence battle cry is sending an important message to his "little brothers" in modern times: Hey guys, if you go out and drink too much booz, you might never come back. So thanks to Kekeha Solis for giving us this history lesson today -- a new piece of historical revisionism explaining the true meaning of Kamehameha's famous Kepaniwai battle cry.

Ken-boyo is a stalker when it comes to Hawaiians. I remember how he used to do it with Dr. Watson too. Pathetic.
