“I Welo Mau Ku‘u Hae Hawai‘i – May my beloved Hawaiian flag fly evermore”

In 1893, Kaulana Nā Pua, the most recognized Mele ‘Ai Pōhaku, or stone eating song was penned by Ellen Wright Prendergast. It became the epitome of resistance expression amongst the Lāhui Kanaka of our pae ‘āina. It spoke of the loyalty of our people to our beloved Queen Lili‘uokalani and our love for our land that would supersede any desire for money. In the 21st century, we the Lāhui Kanaka continue in our political and socio-economic struggles to maintain the dignity, honor and rightful place of our kanaka in Hawai‘i. We continue to sing our honored Mele ‘Ai Pōhaku and we now sing other songs of love and loyalty to land and culture, and most of all the respect and love we have for our Hawaiian flag.

Dinner, child care and college/higher education resources will be available.
Bring the whole ‘ohana!

Hulikoʻa Kaiāulu was developed through a partnership between Kamehameha Schools, INPEACE, MAʻO Organic Farms and UH Hawaiʻinuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge.
