Synopsis: Indigenous peoples meet in Montana to “make medicine” for us to heal. And a part of a poem by Jennifer Greene sums up that experience beautifully. (The poem was translated into Hawaiian.)

Welina e nā makamaka heluhelu. Ua pōmaika'i ko 'oukou mau mea kākau i ka hele 'ana aku nei i Monakana i kēlā pule aku nei me kekahi mau hoa hana no ka launa pū 'ana me kekahi mau Kānaka 'Ōiwi o 'Ailana Honu e alu like nei ma ka hana 'ana i “lā'au” e ola ai kākou a me nā pua a kākou o kēia hope aku.

'O käkou ke hui pū, he u'i me ka ikaika.

Pehea lä käkou i känalua ai i ko käkou ikaika, 'oiai, ua 'oi aku ka ikaika o ka hau a me ke au o ke kai ma mua o ke kanaka aloha 'ole iā käkou?

Ke lohe käkou i ka leo honehone o ka makani ma nä kumu lä'au

'O käkou këia wai. 'O käkou këia 'äina. He oia mau nō käkou. Ua hui pū. Ma nä hökü o ka lani kkou i pili pū ai. A ma ke aloha kākou i pili pū ai.
