Aloha mai e nā hoa puni kinipōpō pekupeku a me nā hoa kāko'o i nā Koa Ānuenue.

Ua pau ihola ka ho'okūkū mua o ke kau o nā Koa Ānuenue, a 'a'ole i kō ka makemake. Ua hā'ule ihola lākou iā Kaleponi Hema ma ka helu 'ai he 30 i ka 13. A 'o ka mea ma'a mau paha, e lohe 'ia nā leo e namunamu ana, “Inā i komo kekahi 'alihikūlele o nā Ānuenue, inā ua lanakila lākou.” “Inā i mea 'o mea, inā ua lanakila lākou.” A pēlā aku. Ua maopopo i nā kūpuna o kākou, he i'a laka wale nō lā ho'i ka 'ina, 'o ia ho'i, he ma'alahi ka 'ōlelo 'ana ma hope o ka hana, “Inā i mea, inā ua 'oko'a ka hopena.”

E kāpae 'ia aku ia 'ano 'ōlelo, a e kāko'o kākou i nā Koa Ānuenue a me kā lākou kumu a'o 'o Norm Chow. 'Eā, 'o ka hui helu 24 'o USC a 'o Hawai'i, 'o ka hui helu 111 ia, a e 'oi aku ana 'o Hawai'i iā Kaleponi Hema no kekahi wā o ka hapahā 'elua, he 5 i ka 3. A i ke kani 'ana aku o ka pū, he 30 wale nō 'ai a Kaleponi Hema. 'O ka 'ao'ao kūpale o Hawai'i, he pā pōhaku pa'a loa ia, 'a'ole e hiolo i ke ōla'i ikaika loa. He mau mea nō kā kākou e mahalo ai i loko nō o ka hā'ule 'ana.

Ua nui paha ka leo o kekahi ma hope o ka 'apo 'ana aku o Kaleponi Hema i ka pōpō a Taylor Graham i ka lua a me ke kolu paha o ka manawa, “E ha'alele 'o Graham, a e komo ka lua o ka 'alihikūlele.”

A i ka hā o ka 'apo 'ana aku o Kaleponi Hema i ka pōpō a Graham, ua hā ihola paha ka leo i ka 'uā 'ana a'e, “E kuapo 'ia aku ka 'alihikūlele.” Akā, e mahalo 'ia ke kūpa'a 'ana aku o Chow ma hope o Graham, ua holo kona mana'o, 'o Graham ka 'alihikūlele, a e hā'awi 'ia ana ka manawa e hele ai 'o ia a ma'a.

'O ka mea maopopo paha, inā 'o kāu keiki ke 'alihikūlele, a huki 'ia a'e 'o ia ma hope o ka 'apo 'ia 'ana aku o kāna pōpō e ka hoa paio ma hope o ka lua a me ke kolu paha o ka manawa, e 'uā lua 'ole ana ka leo, “No ke aha 'o ia i huki 'ino 'ia ai?” “E hā'awi i manawa nona e ma'a ai i ka pā'ani 'ana!” “E hilina'i aku 'oe i kāu mea i koho ai!”

'Eā, ua ho'omanawanui 'o Chow, a i nā kekona hope loa, ua 'ike 'ia ka hua o ia ho'omanawanui 'ana ma ka nou 'ana aku o Graham iā Keith Kirkwood i ka pōpō, he 60 'īā ka lō'ihi, a loa'a ai ka 'ai holo. Ke kuhi nei ko 'oukou mea kākau, e nui ana nā 'ai holo e like me ia ma kēia kau pōpō peku nei. A ke hui pū ia 'ao'ao kūlele me ka hana ikaika wale a ka 'ao'ao kūpale, e luku wale 'ia aku nō nā hoa paio o Hawai'i, 'a'ohe mea nāna e pa'i kona po'o.

Hau'oli loa ko 'oukou mea kākau i ka hai 'ia 'ana o Chow, 'o ia ke kumu a'o o nā Koa Ānuenue. He pono ke hana like ma ka hai 'ia 'ana o ka pelekikena hou o ke Kula Nui o Hawai'i. 'A'ole e koho wale 'ia ke kanaka o ka 'āina 'ē. E koho 'ia ke kupa o kēia 'āina, a 'oi loa aku paha ke Kanaka Maoli.

Ua nui loa nā makahiki o ka ho'okele 'ia 'ana iho o ke Kula Nui o Hawai'i ma lalo o ka haole o ka 'āina 'ē, a 'a'ole i holo pono loa. He au hou kēia a no laila, 'a'ole e hala ka 'ulu i ke alo.
