Welina e nā hoa makamaka. 'Akahi nō a ho'omaka nā Ho'okūkū ma Lādana i ka Pō'alua nei. A he nui nā kānaka o Hawai'i nei e noho pa'a ana i mua o ke kīwī me ka nānā 'ana i nā 'ālapa e ho'oikaika ana i mea e lilo ai ka makana kula iā lākou. 'O ke kanaka 'au kaulana o kēia au, ua lilo aku nei ka 'umikumamāiwa o ka mekala kula iā ia. 'O Kina a me 'Amelika Hui Pū 'Ia, 'o lāua ka 'oi ma nā mekala i kēia manawa.

He nui paha nā kānaka e ho'ōho ana me ka lana o ka mana'o, e lanakila nā 'ālapa 'Amelika. A maika'i kēlā, akā, 'o ko 'oukou mea kākau, 'a'ohe ulu o ka hoi ke nānā aku i nā Ho'okūkū 'Ālapa Honua. Inā 'o Hawai'i kekahi o nā lāhui kū'oko'a e ho'okūkū ana i ko lākou ikaika a mākaukau ma nā hana 'ālapa, inā ua ulu ka hoi o ko 'oukou mea kākau. 'A'ole ho'i e hihi, ua ho'olilo hewa 'ia 'o Hawai'i i moku'āina no 'Amelika Hui Pū. A no laila, he noho palaka wale iho nō ka hana i mua o ke kīwī ke nānā aku ka 'ohana i ia mau ho'okūkū.

Ho'okahi na'e mea i ulu ai ka hoi i ka Pō'akolu nei, 'o ia ke kāpae 'ia 'ana aku o kekahi mau mea pā'ani hilihili manu 'ewalu. Ua holo ka mana'o o ka 'Ahahui Honua Hilihili Manu, e kāpae 'ia aku 'elua hui Kōlea Hema, ho'okahi hui Kina, a ho'okahi hui 'Inonekia ma muli o ko lākou ku'upau 'ole 'ana e lanakila ai ma ka ho'okūkū a me ka hana 'ana ma ke 'ano e ho'oha'aha'a ai i ia hana 'ālapa. Eia mai ka hana a lākou, e ho'ā'o ana lākou e hā'ule ma kekahi ho'okūkū 'ana i mea e ma'alahi ai ke alahele i ka puni inoa moho. 'Ae, 'o ia wale nō. 'A'ole lākou i 'ai i ka lā'au pāpā 'ia, 'a'ole nō ho'i lākou i kikiki ma kekahi 'ano, ua kāpae 'ia lākou ma muli o ka 'i'ini e lilo ka makana kula iā lākou.

'Eā, wahi a kahiko, a'o i ke koa, e a'o nō i ka holo. A he mau 'ōlelo akamai nō ho'i ia.

A inā ma ke kaua, a e ho'ā'o ana e komo i loko o ka hale kaua o ka 'enemi, a he 'elua wahi e komo ai, 'o kekahi, he wahi ia e kūpale maika'i 'ia ana, a 'o kekahi, he nāwaliwali loa. Ma kahi hea lā e ho'ā'o ai e komo? He makehewa ka hele 'ana ma kahi maika'i o ke kūpale 'ia 'ana, 'o ka make mai koe.

A hō'ike mai nō ho'i 'o KūaPāka'a, 'o ke akamai kekahi mea e lanakila ai, 'a'ole wale nō 'o ka ikaika. Ma kona heihei 'ana me kekahi mau kānaka makua, 'o KūaPāka'a, 'o ia ho'okahi ma kona wa'a, a 'o nā kānaka makua, he 'ewalu lākou. A 'o KūaPāka'a kai lanakila. E nīnau mai paha kekahi, “Pehea lā i lanakila ai ke keiki ho'okahi ma luna o nā kānaka makua he 'ewalu?” Eia ka pane: 'A'ole ma ka ikaika.

'Eā, 'a'ole e kīpaku 'ia nā 'ālapa ma muli o ke akamai o ka no'ono'o. Inā he hiki i ka hui ke hā'ule a holo mua a ma ka puni inoa moho, he pono ke ho'ololi 'ia nā lula. 'O ia ihola.

He mea maika'i nā Ho'okūkū 'Ālapa Helene i wahi e 'ike ai i ka mākaukau a me ka ikaika o nā 'ālapa o nā lāhui like 'ole, akā, 'o ke akamai kekahi mea e ho'okūkū 'ia, a no laila, mai nō a ho'opa'i aku i ke kanaka akamai o ka no'ono'o.
