ʻAuhea ʻoukou e nā mamo aloha o kēia ʻāina hoʻoheno, nā mamo a ka ʻĪ, ka Mahi, ka Palena, me ka Palalaui mai ka hikina a ka lā i Kumukahi a i ke kau ʻana i ka mole ʻolu o Lehua, he welina aloha hoʻi kēia i nā manu ʻōiwi o Hawaiʻi nei. ʻO ke poʻomanaʻo i kau aʻela ma luna aʻe nei, ua lohea nō ma ke mele ʻo "Kāhuli Aku, Kāhuli Mai" nō nā pūpū hinuhinu o uka, akā, he manaʻo ʻokoʻa kaʻu e hoʻopaneʻe aku ai i mua o ʻoukou poʻe mamo no ka ʻaihue ʻia ʻana o ko kākou wai a lilo i ka manu o Kahiki!


Ma ka ʻōwili nui ʻana o ka wēlau manamana lima ma luna o ke kelepona, kau ka maka i nā mea like ʻole mai ʻō a ʻō o ka honua. I nā pule i hala aku nei, nui ʻino nā wikiō e hōʻike mai ana i ke kiʻi ʻana o ka manu kōlea i ka waiwai o ka Hawaiʻi a lele i kahi mamao loa aku. ʻO ka wai ʻono i kāʻili ʻia, ʻo ia nō ke mele a me ka hula. Ua pūʻāʻā ka maka o ke kanaka Hawaiʻi i ka hoʻolaha hewa ʻana o ka manu kolea i ka ʻike Hawaiʻi, ʻoiai, ʻaʻohe pūnana o ke kōlea ma Hawaiʻi. Ua kapa ʻia hoʻi kēia ʻano manu he Culture Vulture no kona ʻaihue ʻana i nā momi o kekahi lāhui a hoʻolaha no ka pono o kona nohona ponoʻī.


ʻO kekahi ʻāuna kōlea, ua huihui ā kōlea lākou ma ka ʻāina ma waho aku o Hawaiʻi, ma Sedona, ʻAlikona a hanehane kekahi mele penei:


Nā ʻAumākua

Nā Akua

E nā kūpuna

Nā Kapua

Aloha mai

Hiki mai, hele mai

E hoʻomaikaʻi

I kēnā i kēia i ke aloha


ʻO kekahi mea ʻāpiki o ia mele, ʻo nā ʻaumakua hea kai hea ʻia? ʻO nā kūpuna hea kai hea ʻia? ʻO nā Akua hea kai hea ʻia? ʻO kēia ʻāuna kōlea, he hui lākou i kapa ʻia ʻo empowerment retreats ma ke kiʻiwawe. Uku ʻia ke kumu e nā lālā o ka hui! No kekahi hanana e uku ʻia ana, mālama ʻia ma Kauaʻi, a uku ʻia he $3,350 a i ka $5,000 no ke komo ʻana i ia hanana. ʻO ka mea ma ʻAlikona, he $2,550 no ‘ehā lā. ʻO nā mea e loaʻa ana ke uku, he yoga a he “personalizedmeditation i kēlā me kēia lā, he huakaʻi, a he ʻaha kapu loa. Ke kuhi nei au, ʻo ka breathwork ka mea i hana ʻia ma ka ʻano he mele a oli paha. Pehea lā ka pono o nā haʻawina “Hawaiʻi” i nā lālā ma kēia hui? Ma hea ke kumu o ka pūnana e loaʻa ai kēia mau hua e aʻo ʻia ana? ʻOiai, wahi a kona kahua pūnaewele, ua aʻo ʻē ʻia he 7,000 haumāna ma kēia polokalamu.


ʻO ka poʻe Hawaiʻi kahiko, he poʻe kilo lākou. Ua maopopo ʻia ke ʻano o ka manu o Kahiki. Ua kākau ʻia ma ka nūpepa kahiko ʻo Hawaii Holomua i ka makahiki 1893, “Aia i kekahi kau o ka makahiki, e haalele aku ana lakou i ko lakou mau home a lele auna mai la no na Paemoku o Hawaii nei, a o ka manawa ia ua hoolawa ia ko lakou ola ma na kula a me na kualono o ko kakou aina hanau. Ianei lakou, e noho hoonuu ai, a e hiolani ai a uliuli ko lakou umauma i ka momona.” ʻO kēia laʻana, he manu maoli nō, akā, like nō a like me kēia poʻe kōlea aʻu e walaʻau aku nei ma ke kiʻiwawae, ʻo ia hoʻi ka noho hoʻonuʻu me ka hiʻolani ʻana ā loaʻa ka waiwai iā lākou.


ʻO kekahi mea hilahila loa naʻe, ʻaʻole no Kahiki wale nō kekahi kōlea. Ke hana lapuwale nei kekahi mau kānaka, he Hawaiʻi a he Polenekia paha. ʻIke ʻia nā hula like ʻole ma nā ʻaha mele, ʻo ka reggae paha ke ʻano, a ʻaʻole i kū i ka Hawaiʻi. ʻAʻole au e hōʻahewa nei i ka hulahula ma ka ʻaha reggae, akā, ʻo ka hula hea ia e hula ʻia ana?


No laila eia ka nīnau aʻu e hāpai aʻe ana i mua o ʻoukou, pehea kākou e hoʻonaʻauao ai i ka poʻe lehulehu ke hana kāpulu ʻia kekahi hana noʻeau a ka Hawaiʻi? Pehea kākou e ʻike ai i ka mākaukau i loko o kākou iho e hoʻoponopono aku ai i ka hemahema a haʻi? Eia nō au ke hāpai nei i kuʻu leo mahalo i ka poʻe hoʻopāpā wiwo ʻole ma kiʻiwawe a me Tik Tok paha e kuhi pololei ana i ka mea hewa, koni aku i ka lae, a hoʻākaaka i ka ʻoiaʻiʻo. Pēlā nō e hoʻolaha koke ai i ka ʻoiaʻio. ʻO ka ʻike ʻana i ko kākou mākaukau, e hoʻomanaʻo kākou i kekahi ʻike waiwai a ke kūpuna, ʻo ia hoʻi ka moʻokūʻauhau. Ma kekahi ʻano, he mea ka moʻokūʻauhau e ʻike ai i ka paʻa o kou ʻike, me kou pilina i kekahi ʻohana a ʻāina paha. Ma ka moʻolelo o Hiʻiakaikapoliopele, kainō, he malihini ʻo Pele no Kauaʻi, eia nō naʻe, ua hea ʻia nā mākani he nui loa no Kauaʻi, a pēlā i ʻike ai ʻo ia he kamaʻāina. No laila, e noʻonoʻo: he aha ka moʻo o kou ʻike? E hoʻopaʻa i ke kahua a ma hope ke kūkulu. Eia hoʻi, ʻo ka mea nui a kākou, e nihi ka helena i uka o Puna o ʻike auaneʻi i ke aliʻi nui o Oʻahu iā Kakuhihewa. Inā ʻaʻole i paʻa ka ʻike iā ʻoe e ʻimi aku i kekahi ala e hoʻākaaka ai a hoʻomaopopo ai i ka ʻike. ʻAʻole i pau ka ʻike o ka Hawaiʻi ma ke au i hala, ʻo ia mau nō ka ʻike Hawaiʻi e ola ana ma muli o nā kūpuna, nā mānaleo, nā kumu hula, nā kumu ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, nā kānaka paʻa mele, nā kānaka paʻa moʻolelo, ka pūʻulu nūpepa kahiko, a ia mea like. E hāpai mai i ka nīnau. E hana kākou i ka mea i hiki me ka naʻauao, ʻo ia ka mea nui.
