I ke kulanui o Hawaiʻi ma Mānoa nei, he mau kānaka e hōʻiole nei i nā pono o ke kula a me nā haumāna. He aha ia mea ʻo ka hōʻiole ʻana? ʻO ka hōʻiole ʻana, ʻo ia nō ka ʻaihue ʻana o ke kanaka i nā mea pono waiwai a kekahi kanaka ʻē aʻe. Ma ke kulanui o Mānoa, ke hōʻiole ʻia nei nā ʻano mea like ʻole, ʻo ka mopeka kekahi, ʻo ka paikikala kekahi, ʻo ke kaʻa kekahi, ʻo ke ʻeke kula kekahi, a pēlā wale aku. ʻO nā mea a pau i ʻike ʻia, ʻo ia kekahi o nā pono a ka ʻiole i ʻai ai. Pehea lā ke ʻano o nā kānaka i ʻaihue i nā pono a kekahi? Pehea lā ka naʻau o ke kanaka nāna ia waiwai i ʻaihue ʻia? Minamina hoʻi kēia hanaʻino a kekahi i kekahi. Ma muli o ka nahu ʻana o nā ʻiole i ka ʻai a haʻi, aia ka pono ʻo ke akahele o nā haumāna o ke kulanui me ke kiaʻi pono i kā lākou mau waiwai i ʻole e ʻaihue ʻia e nā ʻiole. Wahi a kekahi haumāna o ka hale noho haumāna ʻo Laulima, ʻaʻole loa ʻo ia e waiho wale i kāna ʻeke me ka nānā ʻole ʻana i ka palekana o kona wahi. Eia hoʻi, he mau hana hou aku e hoʻomākaukau ai i mea e palekana ai nā pono.


ʻO ka DPS (Department of Public Safety) ke keʻena ma ke kulanui nāna e pale a e mālama i nā lālā o ke kulanui. Wahi a lākou, eia kekahi mau hana e hana ai no ka pale ʻana i nā mea āu e minamina ai. ʻO ka mua, mai waiho i nā pono waiwai ma kahi ʻē aku. Inā pono e haʻalele, e lawe i nā mea a pau me ʻoe. ʻO ke ʻeke, ʻo ke kelepona, ʻo ke ʻeke kālā, a pēlā wale aku. Inā waiho ʻia kēia mau waiwai i kahi ʻē, e piʻi ana ka manawa e ʻai ai ka ʻiole a māʻona ka ʻōpū. Eia nō ka ʻoiaʻiʻo, i kekahi manawa he pono ka hele ʻana i ka lua a i ʻole ʻike paha i kekahi hoa, a ulu aʻe ka noʻonoʻo “He ʻelua minuke wale nō!” Akā nō naʻe, pono nō e makaʻala i ka hana. Mai waiho i nā pono waiwai ma kahi ʻē.


Pēlā pū me ke kaʻa, ka mopeka, a me nā mea huila ʻē aʻe. Manaʻo paha kākou ua palekana ke kaʻa ʻoiai kiaʻi ʻia e nā mākaʻi o ke kulanui. ʻAʻole kā! Hiki nō ke ʻapakau ʻia e kēia poʻe ʻiole, he wini hoʻi kau! No laila, e ʻimi kākou i haʻina. ʻO ka mua, a ʻo ke koʻikoʻi loa, mai waiho i ke kaʻa me ke kī i loko a ʻā mau ka ʻenekini. He alahula kēia o nā ʻiole e lawe ai a lilo ke kaʻa me ka maʻalahi loa. Auē no hoʻi ē! Inā paha he mopeka, e aho paha ke kūʻai ʻana i laka no ka mopeka. Aia he mau wahi ma ke kula nuie laka ai i ka mopeka , a no ka lilo ʻana o ka mopeka he punahele a nā haumāna e kūʻai ai, nui nā mopeka i ʻaihue ʻia i kēia makahiki. No laila, ʻumia ka hanu a e hoʻopaʻa i ke kaʻa i ka laka ʻia, i mea e mālama pono ʻia ai.


Eia nō, ʻo kekahi mea kaulana o ka hōʻiole ʻana, he mau mea huila. ʻO ka papa huila a me ka paikikala kekahi o nā mea i kaulana loa i ka ʻaihue. Ma ka hale noho haumāna ʻo Gateway, ʻike ʻia kekahi o nā paikikala i ʻaihue ʻia. Waiho wale ʻia kekahi huila a i ʻole lawe ʻia ka huila a waiho wale ka iwi o ka paikikala. ʻOki kekahi i ka laka o ka paikikala i mea e lawe ʻia ai. Pehea lā e mālama ai i ka paikikala a me ka papa huila? ʻO ka papa huila, maʻalahi ka lawe ʻana i ka papa a kālele ma ka paia i kahi kokoke. ʻO ka paikikala, ʻo ka mea a kēia mea kākau i ʻike ai, ʻo ia ka lawe ʻana i ka paikikala i kahi kokoke loa i ka papa a me ka laka ʻana i kekahi mea e ʻoni ʻole. Inā hiki ʻole ke lawe i kahi kokoke loa, e aho paha ka laka ʻana i wahi i hiki ai i ka nui lehulehu ke ʻike i mea e hōʻole ai i ka ʻiʻini o ka ʻiole e ʻai.


Minamina nō kākou i ka waiwai ponoʻī. Aia ka pono ʻo ka mālama a me ka pale ʻana i ua mau mea lā o pau i ka ʻiole. Eia nō ka haʻina, e ka mea heluhelu: e mālama pono i kāu mau mea, a he ʻole ka hopohopo ʻana.
