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 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.
