Aloha mai kakou! On behalf of the Hawai‘i Council and the nine island clubs welcome to Moku O Keawe and the 55th Annual Convention. “From the fiery pit of Tutu Pele…..” to the majestic Mauna a Wakea, we send our aloha to all. This year’s theme “Ua hele au me ka mana’o pa’a, ua paio au me ka mana’o koa, ua lanakila au me ka mana’o pono, ua mākaukau au me ka mana’o wiwo’ole...” (I went forward with determination, I fought with courage, I achieved victory for the benefit of the people for whom I humbly serve, and I prepared fearlessly for the tasks that lay before me…) were words spoken by Joseph Kaho‘oluhi Nāwahīokalaniōpu’u, a Hawaiian patriot and Renaissance man. A teacher, surveyor, lawyer, cabinet minister, newspaper editor, and artist he was born in Kaimū, Puna, Hawai’i on January 13, 1842. Elected to the legislature of the Kingdom in 1872, he represented Hilo intermittently for the next 20 years. He served briefly as the minister of foreign affairs, and became a trusted advisor of Lili’uokalani during the last months of the Monarchy. With his wife, Emma, they worked tirelessly and selflessly to stop annexation and to restore Hawai’i’s independence as a nation. Nāwahī’s editorials and speeches of this period were some of the most passionate and articulate expressions of faith in the Hawaiian people and their ability and right to govern themselves. He was seen as a serious threat to the Republic of Hawai’i and was arrested and imprisoned for acts deemed “treasonous” to the government. (Islandbreath.org) Fast forward to 2014. A hundred plus years later we are still in the throes of Nation building and self-determination. We are a resilient and steadfast people, though, which best describes the logo. The design focuses on rebirth symbolized by the kupukupu fern which is first to emerge after a lava flow.  It represents Joseph Nawahi’s and our peoples’ resilience and growth in the quest for Nationhood.  Incorporated in the design is molten lava moving up under the pohaku representing the energy and unwavering spirit of our kupuna. This spirit flows within all of us in the pursuit of our highest good.  The pohaku symbolizes strength and staying grounded. Mahalo nui loa to my board, na Pelekikena and member clubs for their support throughout my term of office. Work hard, play hard and enjoy your Convention. Mahalo palena ‘ole,

Bucky Leslie

Our club has been consistent in holding our general membership meetings throughout the year on the third Sunday of very odd numbered month, alternating venues between Hilo and Laupahoehoe. On September 25 & 26, 2013, and again on April 8 & 15, 2014 The Office of Hawaiian Affairs secured our club to provide food for their meetings held in Hilo. Ten members attended convention on Kauai in November, 2013, and found the meetings intense and the plenary sessions informative. The members were especially touched by Senator Clayton Hee’s presentation and plea for the people of Ni‘ihau and the presence of the Ni‘ihau people. On January 16th, 17th and 18th, 2014, our president participated in the presentation of “He Lei, He Aloha. This is a Lei of Love – The Legacies of Queen Lili`uokalani” narrated by Meleana Aluli Meyer coupled with audience participation in reading excerpts from Hawaii’s Story by Hawaii’s Queen at the Honoka‘a, Laupahoehoe and Hilo Public Libraries in celebration of the State’s Libraries 100th anniversary. The Laupahoehoe Music Festival was held on April 5th and we again had the beverage booth for exposure in the community and raise money for our club. We were involved with other community volunteers, Hawaii CCC inmates, Laupahoehoe Community Public Charter School (LCPCS) students and staff, in the planning, set up, implementation and take down of another successful event. April was Tsunami Awareness Month for the island of Hawai‘i and our president was invited to participate in the planning and implementation of several community activities, including an opening ceremony at the Shinmachi Memorial in Hilo on 4/1; the annual LCPCS Memorial Service at Laupahoehoe Point on 4/2; and the Tsunami Talk Story event held at Sangha Hall in Hilo on 4/6. On 6/8 six members traveled to Kona to pick crown flowers. On 6/9 we gathered with staff from the Queen Lili`uokalani Children’s Center (QLCC), Hilo Unit, to sew ten 24 ft. long lei – 5 for QLCC and 5 for our club. On 6/10 three of our members participated in the Hilo King Kamehameha Statue lei draping ceremony. We assisted the LCPCS in collaboration with QLCC staff to hold a Girls’ Group for six weeks for six girls and a Boys’ Group for five days

for eight boys. Both sessions were well-received. We hope to expand on these programs next summer. On 8/4 our members assisted the Hamakua Drug-Free Committee and QLCC, along with Community Policing Police Officers, County Department of Parks & Recreation, schools and other community members, prepare 300 packets of school supplies. On 8/6 we assisted with the distribution of these supplies at the annual “Celebrating Families” pool bash at the Laupahoehoe Swimming Pool. Approximately 150 people attended this event where games, poster contests, lucky name drawing and dinner was enjoyed by all in attendance. On 8/16 we prepared kalua/cabbage and rice for the “Plantation Days Festival” pot luck dinner held in Honoka‘a to commemorate the 20th anniversary since the closing of Hamakua Sugar Company. It was a full day of sharing cultures and foods in Honoka‘a town with a showing of privately-owned videos at the People’s Theater of the last harvest and other plantation scenes that most viewers found very emotional. The event ended with the community potluck at the Honoka‘a High School Cafeteria. Not used kalua/cabbage was donated to the Nanawale Community Association for disaster relief efforts as the result of Hurricane Iselle.

Aloha mai kakou, Mahalo to the Hawai’i Council for all of your work in hosting the 55th annual convention! Receiving our charter at the 54th annual convention on our island of Kaua’i was a very special and important event for our ‘ahahui. We feel blessed to be able to form a new club that welcomes members from around the island. Since our club was chartered we’ve been learning the chant of Mo’ikeha – Na Kamahualele no Mo’ikeha. We hit the ground running as the ‘ahahui activities began a month after our organization date with a lei selling booth at a hula halau ho’ike, with the net proceeds starting our scholarship fund. In January we partnered with Hale Halawai ‘Ohana O Hanalei to present the 1st annual Ka Moku O Manokalanipō Pa’ani Makahiki at Waiʹoli Beach Park at Hanalei Bay. This was a day of ancient Hawaiian games, ono food and awards. Next year’s Makahiki will be held at Kapa’a Beach Park and will travel to the South Shore and West side in the following years completing the circle around the island. During the month of March we participated in the annual Prince Kūhiō Commemorative Services at his birthplace and cultural preserve in Hoai, Kualu, Koloa hosted by the Royal Order of Kamehameha I, Chapter No. 3 “Kaumualiʹi” and Na Wahine Hui O Kamehameha. On the birth date of Prince Kūhiō we presented a musical biography of the Prince at the Kauaʹi Museum. It was such a hit with the malihini, kama’aina and staff that we’ve been asked to hana hou next year. On a Saturday in April we partnered with Hale Halawai ‘Ohana O Hanalei to present 2 workshops that were well attended: Kūpuna Technology with Elena Farden and ʹĀina Akamu, and Hawaiian Name Giving with Hailama Farden in Hanalei. May was a busy month as we partnered once again with Hale Halawai ‘Ohana O Hanalei to present the annual May Day by the Bay community event at Wai’oli Beach Park at Hanalei Bay. This was a day dedicated to “Keeping the Culture Alive” featuring Hawaiian entertainment, hula, ono food, cultural demonstrations, Kauaʹi made products and community displays. We also held a lau lau sale to raise funds to attend this convention. On June 14 we joined 2 other civic clubs in the annual Kamehameha Day Parade in Lihu’e with a walking unit and two car entries. For ten days in July, members volunteered their services at the Ka ‘Aha Hula ‘O Halauaola 4th World Conference on Hula in the Moku of Puna.

The Hanalei Hawaiian Civic Club has done many things to further and continue our vision and mission. We have a free Hawaiian language class every thursday for the community in order to increase the amount of speakers of Hawaiian. On January 28th we took 30 children from the Make-a-Wish foundation paddling and taught them about some of the cultural significance of the wa‘a. During this time we also awarded our scholarship to Tiele Doudt, a student at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, seeking her double major degree in Marine Sciences and Hawaiian Studies. In March 5 some of our canoe club members went to Hanalei elementary school to share the canoe culture during their Hawaiian Days celebration. We are also assisted in the world wide sail of Hōkūle‘a by hosting a team of educators that will be a part of it. We shared our knowledge of how we relate to the ocean as well as some protocols that we observe at our canoe club. Our canoe club, The Hanalei Hawaiian Civic Canoe Club, through much fundraising efforts was able to take the children of our youth paddling program to the HCRA State Championship where our girls 13 and under crew won a bronze medal. This year has been full of challenges and triumphs on our island but we look forward to spreading the vision of our ali‘i for many more years to come. Na‘u nō me ka ha‘aha‘a na Devin

This past spring Kaumuali'i Hawaiian Civic Club participated in the Prince Kühiö Celebration hosted by the Royal Order of Kamehamea 1st Chapter 3 and Na Wahine Hui O Kamehamea and held at Prince Kuhio Park in Poipu, Kauai. In addition to this celebration, Kaumuali'i also had the opportunity to present the life of Prince Kuhio through songs and stories at Kaua'i Museum's Prince Kühiö Birth Date celebration. Together with Hanalei, Queen Deborah Kapule, and Mo'ikeha we celebrated King Kamehameha at the annual Kamehameha Day Parade in Lihue. We had the privilege of running a food booth at the Ho'olaulea that was held following the parade. Kaumuali'i is also in the planning stages of a couple of events. One event we hope to host is a King Kaumuali'i Celebration fun-filled day with Hawaiian traditions, crafts, and games sometime during the summer. The second event that we are planning is a health fair, teaming up with various health care businesses focusing on a number of growing health issues within the Hawaiian community on our islands, Kaua'i and Ni'ihau. We want to take this opportunity to convey a hearty Congratulations! to Hawai‘i Council for co-hosting this year's convention! Mahalo Nui Loa for your hard work!

The Maui Council clubs are actively working to promote and assist in their communities. I want to thank all of our clubs for keeping our council a strong working council. Our last Maui Council meeting was held in July on Maui. It was a wonderful meeting with all clubs represented. I was not able to attend because of getting bumped on my return flight. I am very appreciative of Hailama for taking the lead at the meeting that worked out to be a full day meeting. There was a lot of discussion as to the kuleana of each club for the upcoming 2015 Convention. I am thrilled that the report showed such enthusiasm from each of our clubs. I know we all look forward to an awesome convention at sea! Also, a big mahalo to Lahaina Hawaiian Civc Club for the mea ‘ai.

Since Convention 2013, Kuini Pi‘olani HCC participated in many events, including the annual birthday Celebration for Queen Kapi‘olani on December 31st. This celebration coincided with the Birthday Celebration of Princess Abigail Wahīika‘ahu‘ula Campbell Kawānanakoa (Whose birthday is January 1st.) KPHCC continues to serve as a Hawaiian Language and Culture resource for the Association and for other organizations. On January 2nd, 2014, Kuini Pi'olani HCC sadly lost its eldest members, Tūtū Helen Lady Kamanā at age 105. Although Tūtū Kamana had not attended any conventions, she was a very active member of our club and even rode in the Prince Kūhō Parade at age 103 two years ago. Members of KPHCC were joined by Association Pelekikena Soulee Stroud in bidding "aloha" to Tūtū Kamanā. Kuini Pi‘olani HCC proudly attended the Living Treasures Of Hawai‘i banquet on February 8th, 2014. Among this year’s Living Treasure designees was KPHCC member, Rev. Ida Keli‘iokalani (Hanapī) Chun, for whom Kuini Pi‘olani HCC submitted a resolution to the 2013 AHCC Convention. Sadly, Auntie Keli'i passed away less than one month later. Members, once again gathered to bid aloha to one of our treasured members. Finally, some additional information; KPHCC member 'Āina Akamu was named the Department Head of the Social Studies Department of the Kamehameha Schools (High School - Kapālama; KPHCC member, Julian Keikilani Ako has announced he will retire as the High School Principal (Kamehameha-Kapālama) at the end of this school year; and finally, Ho'omaika'i to KPHCC eldest member, Auntie Adelaide Sylva (Also member of Lahaina HCC) celebrates her 100th birthday this October!

Aloha mai kakou! We extend our aloha and mahalo to Moku O Keawe for hosting this year’s convention. We wish you much success. Since our last gathering at the AHCC quarterly meeting in July, the August Mainland Council board meeting was held in Lone Tree, Colorado. Pi’ilani HCC of Colorado was a wonderful host. After our board meeting, we enjoyed a fun-filled evening with their members at their Founder’s Picnic and Kanikapila. Ono food and terrific entertainment was served! Na Lei Makalapua, Mainland Council, has been very busy in organizing our Ho`ohanohano I ko Kūpuna Na`auao educational workshops. These events honor our kūpuna’s wisdom by providing an educational opportunity for our Hawaiian community to learn about the different perspectives of nation building. Mahalo to Lono Kollars, Aunty Sharon Paulo and Aunty Melissa Moniz for working many tireless hours to organize these events. Within weeks after our San Diego workshop in May, we learned of the scheduled DOI meetings to be held in Hawaii. After discussions with Soulee Stroud and representatives from the DOI, it was decided to schedule additional DOI meetings. These meetings were held in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 26th, Hayward, California on August 9th, and Tustin, California on August 10th. At these three meetings we were able to meet and work with Jennifer Romero, Senior Advocate for Native Hawaiian Affairs and Rhea Su, Assistant Secretary. Also, several of our Mainland Council civic clubs attended the originally scheduled DOI meetings that were held in Indian Country. A majority of these meetings were recorded and can be found on our Mainland Council Facebook page. As a result of planning these events, there has been a lot of interest expressed from our communities throughout the continent that would like the Mainland Council to help schedule and provide similar educational opportunities to kanaka maoli living away from Hawaii. We intend to continue to schedule and provide these educational workshops to interested communities. The Mainland Council strives to continue to improve its communication across the continent to keep our club members informed. We hope to accomplish this through our Facebook group, the Mainland Council website and through monthly conference calls.

`Āinahau O Kaleponi Hawaiian Civic Club extends a Warm Aloha to all of you at our 55th Annual Convention on the island of Hawai`i. On August 16th, we celebrated our 32nd Annual Scholarship `Aha`aina with over 300 guests. Our theme this year was “Mahalo Ia `Oe e Ke Ali`i…..Thanks goes to you,Chief,” in honor of our founder, Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana`ole Pi`ikoi. We featured his life, his favorite places, his favorite songs and all the great things he did for the Hawaiian people. We continue to encourage and support higher education and this year granted over $8,000 in educational and cultural scholarships. It was a very special evening. We participated in the Aloha Festival in Northridge on May 31st and June 1st and the Alondra Park Ho`olaule`a on July 19th and 20th and both were a Big Success. The lines for our food booth (lau lau, lomi salmon, poi, rice, loco moco and watermelon) and game booth were long and steady all weekend and our hard workers kept up with the demand. We always enjoy seeing all of our friends at the Festivals and Ho`olaule`a. Our annual community service performances at convalescent and senior homes were held in December and April. In November, we visited Lunalilo Home in Honolulu and brought hula and mele to the residents. Some of the kupuna participated with us dancing and singing. We so enjoy sharing our culture with them and look forward to visiting them again this year. We have been very active in the Hawai`i Nation Building effort. We have attended townhall meetings in San Diego and Tustin, responded to the Department of Interior’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rule Making and continue to read and view information available to us so that we can be well informed about what is happening in Hawai`i and throughout the continent. We continue to partner with Pacific Islander Health Partnership (PIHP) and have worked on Malama Pu`uwaiDiabetes Management and Heart Disease, the Cancer Survivor Luncheon, Aquarium of the Pacific Keiki International Weekend and Pacific Islander Festival, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and various health workshops, events and outreach activities. We submitted a grant proposal for the Pili `Ohana Weight Loss and Maintenance and Diabetes Management Programs and hope that we will be funded and will partner with PIHP to bring the Program to the community. We have had several Movie Night fundraisers to help defray the costs for this year’s Convention which we hope enables more members to attend. We continue to enjoy working in our community, sharing our aloha and rich culture.

Hui Hawai`i O Tenesi Hawaiian Civic Club continues it's mission to perpetuate the Hawaiian Culture and Aloha Spirit in and around Clarksville, TN. as well as throughout middle Tennessee. Our membership has grown as a result of our involvement within these communities. We are thrilled to meet members of the military at these events who recently transferred from Hawai`i to Fort Campbell in Tennessee and see their reaction when they realize that other Hawaiians are living in the immediate area. Since last convention, our members continue to grow in the practice of hula, mele, and oli each week as our hula group continues to grow. We do club fundraiser events, such as, kalua pig sales, Nä Mea Hawai`i and plumeria, ti plants all grown in TN. at Clarksville’s Downtown Marketplace during the spring and summer months. We also participate in Clarksville’s Rivers and Spires Festival, Clarksville/Montgomery County’s Warrior Week – a tribute to our military members and their families, Clarksville’s largest summer event of the year, Riverfest held in September. We annually participate in the City of Clarksville’s Christmas Parade with our, now readily recognizable, smoking volcano! We are also blessed by the mana`o and teaching of Kumu Hula Aunty Sissy Kaio of Hula Halau O Lilinoe in Carson, Ca. One of our club’s primary functions is to support the cultural needs of our military members and families of the Fort Campbell Community and as such we concentrate on activities that are scheduled near the border of Tennessee and Kentucky where our military members reside. Through this effort, we hope to add to our membership where we may continue to spread the Aloha Spirit to new areas. Hui Hawai`i O Tenesi Hawaiian Civic Club is doing its part to further the vision of Prince Jonah Kühiö in preserving and perpetuating the Hawaiian Culture. Please keep our military members and their `ohana in your thoughts and prayers as they serve in the military and are deployed around the globe. We send to you our fondest Aloha Ya’all.

Ke welina mai nei, This year has been a busy one for us. We have many activities and initiatives in the works, and continue to work on our 'Ohana Day Care program, aimed at not only ensuring that we are self-sustaining but more importantly, that we’re able to positively impact our children starting at that young age. We’ve had workshops and events. Once again, we participated in Salt Lake City’s annual Living Traditions festival which was a success. Mahalo piha to the families and many young volunteers who help to make it not just profitable, but fun! Our Nation Building workshop was hosted by Utah Valley University and we had about 40 kanaka maoli in attendance. There were several people present who we had never meet before the event. It was a great way to let everyone know about the civic clubs. We want to mahalo the Utah Department of Health Disparities for working with us to support our events as we provide health screening clinics. Two of our major events were tied to our partnership with them. One of the events was our annual POKE CHALLENGE 2014 which we held in June. What was even more amazing was having our younger generation participate! We had 4 family teams competing to make the best poke of 2014. This year, ka ‘ohana Gaui took home the honors of first place, and while they were nervous to participate, they‘re now looking forward to the next one. Another event occurred on August 16th where we held a free screening of the film Haumāna. It was so amazing to be able to share this film with our community, especially kūpuna who have been away from home for a long time, and also to those who were born and raised outside of ka pae ‘āina. For many of us present it was a reminder for us to hold on to what is true. So many times we can get caught up in other people‘s expectations, or their perspectives of our culture. Our silence on the matter gets taken as acceptance of these expectations and perspectives as true. Then what becomes opinion slowly becomes fact, for the following generations. We always enjoy engaging with our community, and seeing everyone, from kūpuna to kamali’i enjoying being in each others presence. The Haumāna is a wonderful film worth sharing with the family and the community. For more information on our club, please feel free to follow us on Facebook. Come check us out on Fridays when we share “Flashback Fridays”. Sometimes it may be a photo, a mele, oli, or quote. Many times it‘s a recollection. We are humbled that we can continue to be not just engaged, but effectively and culturally empowering in our community.

The year saw a very busy time for us at Panoa (as we lovingly refer to ourselves). Our biggest effort was once again hosting the annual Inland Empire Ho’olaule’a in the city of Beaumont, California. This year we partnered with the City who was our major sponsor; the outcome of which saved us thousands of dollars in costs. We are now officially part of the Summer Series Program of the City of Beaumont. In May, Lono Kollars who serves as the Hope Pelekikena Mua of our club and of the Mainland Council was able to coordinate the first of a string of community meetings, in response to the recent Department of the Interior hearings that happened in Hawaii relative to reestablishing a government to government relationship between the Hawaiian people and the United States. The presenters at this meeting were Dr. Keanu Sai and OHA staff Kehau Abad and Kühiö Lewis. The meeting was well attended by civic club members and non-members alike. Since that first meeting, Lono has been able to coordinate a community meeting in Las Vegas hosted by the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club; a meeting in San Francisco hosted by Kumu Kau’i Peralto who is not a civic club member but very influential in the northern California Hawaiian community and a fourth meeting in southern California in the city of Tustin. All of the meetings drew audiences interested in restoring the Hawaiian nation versus federal recognition of the Native Hawaiian people. The meetings have been very informative thanks to Dr. Keanu Sai and the Department of the interior. The community meetings have been sponsored by the Mainland Council and civic clubs in California who have absorbed costs, donated time, talents and facilities and provided refreshments for all meetings. Mahalo to the ‘Ahahui Kiwila of San Diego, the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club, ‘Ainahau o Kaleponi Hawaiian Civic Club, ‘Ahahui o Lili’uokalani Hawaiian Civic Club and Kaha I Ka Panoa Kaleponi Hawaiian Civic Club. It is the hope of Lono and the Governance Committee of the Mainland Council chaired by Auntie Melissa Moniz of Kai Ula Pono’i Hawaiian Civic Club in San Antonio, Texas that the community meetings continue throughout the continent so that Hawaiians living off the ‘aina are better informed with the process being expressed by the Department of the Interior and are aware that there is an option other than federal recognition. The meetings do not promote a choice in nation building but rather informs the audience that there is also the option of restoring the Hawaiian nation that was illegally annexed to the United States without the consent of the people and therefore still exists. We anxiously look forward to this year’s convention. E Holomua Kākou………

Aloha kakou to the Associations’ Executive Board members, Councils, and Native Hawaiian Delegation with a special e ho`omaika`i to the Hawai`i Council for hosting this years Convention. As I prepare for this year’s activities of duty and fellowship, I am reminded that I am returning to the birthplace of our Club where we received our Charter, and my Mother, Joelladean Hinano Keliikoa Lee, became the Pelekikena of the the Ke Ali`i Victoria Ka`iulani Hawaiian Civic Club-Chicago. Centered on celebrating and honoring our Beloved Princes Ka`iulani as a symbol of people from two worlds, and her ability to embrace all peoples with dignity, grace and aloha. On behalf of our members we extend a mahalo nui loa to this body for receiving us on this our 9th anniversary at this year’s 2014 Annual Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Convention. Our year began upholding the motto of our Club, “Mai po`ina`ole” as we entered the year honoring the passing of a Life Member, Bernard “Uncle Bernie” Navarro. We will miss him deeply but rejoice in our continuing to embrace his surviving `ohana and the two greatest joy of Uncle Bernie’s life, his nephew AJ and niece Jasmine. In light of Nation Building related issues and surrounding specific efforts that would lead up to this year’s convention, KVK-Chicago redirected our attention from our regularly scheduled Club Initiatives of Health & Hawaiian Language to Capacity Building. In July I attended a Nation Building Workshop held in Orlando, Florida that focused greatly on engaging and educating patrons on the process of election voting procedures and requirements sensitive to citizenship and status. Facilitated open discussions, breakout sessions and an effective campaign development tool empowering us to be more focused in our thought process as we create campaigns that assists in our achieving goals that serves a clearly stated purpose, proved to be invaluable.

Upon my return to Chicago we gave our undivided attention to the final thirty days of being proactive at reaching out to the constituents of our serving communities to submit testimony by August 19th. Kupuna were priority in documenting their mana`o from their own residence, assisted in dictation, and established an Open House Testimonial Writing session to anyone interested in submitting lead by one of our members. Though gallant efforts were made to kokua, what I learned from attending the Nation Building Workshop, is that it is still dependent on one’s ability to completely follow the process through to the end. In closing, I wish to acknowledge Members William Richmond (Life), Sara Joan Bales (Kupuna), and Amy Harvey (newest member) and including Midwest Kupuna for sharing their most personal thoughts that contributed to the composing of our Club’s Testimony. Your patience and willingness to educate myself, and our members will forever remain invaluable to our Club. On behalf of the Ke Ali`i Victoria Ka`iulani Hawaiian Civic Club of Chicago, we humbly submit this year’s Club report to the Native Hawaiian Delegation of the 2014 Annual Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Convention, Kona, Hawai`i.

We do this once or twice a month or more, depending on the job we are working on at the time. The experience is very rewarding because these patients are always looking forward to seeing new faces and enjoy having a friendly conversation. After having several meetings to discuss the Club’s two-year strategic plan, a unanimous decision was made to organize an extensive plan to hold an annual “Hula Seminar,” here in Indianapolis, as a major way of building our Scholarship Program to assist potential students in need. Although the document needs to be critiqued somewhat, the preliminary plans are in place; and, we will now move forward reaching out to foundations for financial assistance and guidance to fund this project. We are so thrilled, excited and scared all in the same breath. So please send your pule to us. We will certainly need it. I must also share with you that about six years ago, The Indiana School of Polynesian Arts d/b/a Indy Hula was formed; or, indyhula.org (in case you’d like to see our website). We have been blessed with a wonderful teacher, who is a Punahou Alumna. And, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how very proud and so humbled I am with my Indy Hula sisters and brothers because they will play a major role doing all the work required to get our project off the ground with the understanding that all proceeds will go

directly to The Ke Ali`i William Charles Lunalilo Hawaiian Civic Club. And yes, they will be able to participate in the Hula Seminar free of charge; but, I indicated that they must become members of our Club first. I hope it will interest you to know that an individual lady, who admired, respected and loved our Hawaiian history and culture so much, started the Hula Seminar 20 years ago. It was a biannual event having the first session in the spring around May and the fall session during September or October. It was a very successful business, but because of Medical reasons, she had to give it up. Therefore, I hope we are given the blessing of success as well. During the Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration in May, I was approached by Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, to give a talk about the Waimea/Kamuela Paniolo and Vaquero. Mahalo to my cousin, Sweetheart, on the Big Island, who helped me with the research…and I proudly introduced and shared a DVD about my great uncle, Ikua Purdy. “Our Dream Continues…” Aloha no, Lavalliere

We also have been getting involved in local summer fests in our area. We took part in the Itasca MARKET, that took place on June 14,2014. There were over 40 vendors & a few hundred attendees. Our club had a booth,which sold Hawaiian goods &(with the help of our club members...) we also taught free hula lessons, konane, and had Hawaiian music playing throughout the day We are also going to be in the Renegade Craft Fair, which will take place September 6-7.

Participation in Arizona Aloha Festival, Phoenix Dragon Boat festival, Ka Leo O Ke Kai Regatta. Our Ukulele club is in it's 7th year. We manned and performed at the Musical Instrument Museum's Experience Polynesia. In August we joined forces with the Northern Arizona Hawaiian community in Cottonwood for a cultural workshop on making various tools, cordage, kapa, etc. Also, workshops in making hula implements. We had about 50 people at the DOI meeting here in Phoenix on August 5. Compared to Hawaii, our meeting was somewhat sedate. Everyone who spoke, were allowed to say their piece with out any interruptions. Those who attend thought that it was very informative. In attendance was Oswald Stender and a team from OHA. November 1 is our 32nd annual scholarship luau. So while you are reading this on Saturday, we are whooping it up in Phoenix. Aloha ke Akua - Kaonoi Kim

2014 has been a busy year for Na Keiki O Hawai'i Hawaiian Civic Club. We started with Hawaiian School every Thursday in a room donated by Tabouhna Foundation of Tyonek (some of their tribal members are part Hawaiian and/or married to Native Hawaiians. In February we participated in the Fur Rondy event, Meet the World at the Anchorage Museum. We paraded with a flag (on a Native Hawaiian quilt), displayed hula implements and gave Hawaiian names. In March we volunteered for the Tabouhna Foundation to present a basketball tournament and Native Gathering for thousands of people including Sammie Pedro and her hula dancers. In April we raised $425.00 for the Tabouhna Foundation and the villagers of Tyonek who were evacuated from their homes because of a wildfire. In May we held a concert with Mailani and Kau'i Dalire and helped to raise funds for scholarships. The list goes on. In June Na Keiki volunteered for the Mayor's Marathon and the Polynesian Flag Day. In July Na Keiki held it's first ever Na Keiki Camp Out at Centennial Campground with plenty kolohe time and ono mea ai. In August Na Keiki held the annual Pikiniki with more ono mea ai and kolohe time and received an award from Bridge Builders at their annual community gala.

This past year we helped some members cleanup after the floods in Boulder, provided Thanksgiving baskets for members who needed support and finished the year with a Mele Kalikimaka pa'ina. In the new year we installed new board members and had a maika'i prince Kühiö celebration lunch and kanikapila. Our general membership meetings included learning from researchers of Hawaiian language newspapers and learning about the impact of voyaging canoes on traditional learning styles. We also assisted the university of Colorado at Boulder's Aloha club with their first luau in many years. This spring we were honored to present a college scholarship award to Daniellelyn Kaunaloa Kama a student at Colorado State University in Pueblo. In the summer we hosted 27 or so members and delegates of the Mainland Council, and finished the weekend together with our members at or annual Founders Picnic and Kanikapila. It was a fun evening of mele, hula, mea ai, and aloha, for all 70 plus in attendance. In September we will hold our biannual luau fundraiser with traditional local food, entertainment and finishing with a Polynesian review show.

CIVIC CLUB REPORTS Ke One O Kakuhihewa O‘ahu Council of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Aloha, For 2014 the Council continued its theme: “… a he leo wale no” – only the voice. This theme emphasized that the voice is very important to the Hawaiian; therefore communication and communication skills are important to the success of the Civic Clubs. The president also emphasized that clubs should looks towards building membership and embracing technology in 2014. “Pūpūkahi i holomua – unite to move forward.” 2014 marks a milestone for a few of our long standing clubs: Ko‘olauloa (90 years), Pearl Harbor (50 years), Prince Kūhiō (50 years) Queen Emma (50 years), and Waikīkī (50 years). The Council conducted its first quarter general meeting of 2014 at Hale Ponoi, Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, Kapolei, Oahu. The Council passed a resolution to support of the intent of the OHA legislative package. The Council also held a workshop on the Legislative process. The Council conducted its second quarterly general membership meeting of 2014 at Kualoa Ranch, Ko‘olaupoko, O‘ahu. The members were commended for their participation in the Prince Kūhiō Festival activities occurring on O‘ahu: Parade, Ho‘ike‘ike, Ho‘olaule‘a, Essay Contest, Kapolei Prince Kūhiō Ho‘olaule‘a, Prince Kūhiō Choral Concert, Ali‘i Sunday, Statue Lei Draping, and Mauna ‘Ala ceremony. We successfully held all the regular O‘ahu activities even though the Parade and Ho‘ike‘ike were held on two different days at two different venues. During the 2014 Legislature members of the O‘ahu Council were kept busy responding to calls to action in support of OHA’s Kaka‘ako Ma Kai development. Members also responded to multiple calls to support the OHA Legislative Package. At the 2nd Quarterly meeting the Council discussed with OHA Chief Advocate Kawika Riley and OHA Trustee Peter Apo on the next steps of nation building after Kana’iolowalu. The Council also heard from Alex Santiago on how the clubs could be involved in No Vote No Grumble. The Council conducted its Third Quarter general membership meeting again at Hale Ponoi. The Oahu Council has completed its Ahupuaa Boundary Marker project. All marker locations have been identified through out the island. We now await a few more signs to be erected. With the guidance of Evern Williams, president of Ka Lei Maile Alii, each club will also be creating a short video to be aired on ‘Oleo Oahu Public Television. At that meeting the Council heard from 1st Vice President Annelle Amaral on the Association’s position for the Department of Interior Advance Notice of Proposed Rule Making. Each club was then given an opportunity to express their own observations of the hearings, any planned activities, viewpoints, or submitted testimony. Through July and August the Council worked to encourage many clubs and individuals to submit testimony. The 2016 Convention Planning Committee has received three prospective hotels proposals in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP) to prospective hotels through Meet Hawai‘i. The Committee will be meeting with these hotels as well as meeting with the Hawaii Convention Center to further develop a 2016 Convention recommendation. The Council will meet in October for the final meeting of 2014 and hold its elections. Starting in 2015 we will increase to six Moku Directors to represent the six traditional moku of O‘ahu.

Ali`i Pauahi's inspiration for the 2014 year was, "E noho iho i ke opu weuweu, mai ho`oki`eki`e." "Remain among the clumps of grass and do not elevate yourself." Ever mindful of inhabiting a space of strength in mind, body and spirit, 2014 was a year of self-reflection and correction, led by Ke Akua, in aloha, humility, and gratitude; quietly, intentionally, and with no expectation of personal return. Ali`i Pauahi actively fed, clothed and embraced our brethren who live on the streets, in their cars, or wherever they can safely lay their heads. We honored our Ali`i, in regalia and in the simple and loving cleaning of their sacred space. We testified at the Legislature for recognition of our traditional healing and cultural practices in measures addressing the health and well-being of our people, and asked that we and OHA be allowed to build innovative housing for our nation. We deepened our practice of cultivating maile and restoring a native forest at Mahi`ai `Ihi in the most sacred way. We gifted ulu trees to families seeking to return to our traditional diets. We offered youth the avenues to overcome challenges that lay at the root of their actions and to realize their own kuleana as valuable and gifted members of our communities. We advocated for the creation of affordable housing for our kupuna in Kawaiakaokamanu. We restored our Ahupua`a wisdom in the marking of traditional boundaries. We worked to ensure the opening of a new library in `Aiea, after 17 years of waiting. We are working with community caregivers to design culturally appropriate modalities of healing for Hawaiians who suffer from domestic violence. We are supporting our Polynesian voyaging canoes, Hōkūle‘a and Hikianalia, as they sail across Earth’s oceans to join and grow the global movement toward a more sustainable world. We are nurturing healing practices steeped in indigenous knowledge. We are creating `aina-based sanctuaries for our wounded warriors to find peace, forgiveness and well-being. We are striving for Pono practice. “Ua hele au me ka mana‘o pa‘a Ua paio au me ka mana‘o koa Ua lanakila au me ka mana‘o pono Ua makaukau au me ka mana‘o wiwo‘ole” We are advocating for peace and Aloha in a relationship with America and each other that will keep our Queen's vision alive and the future of our Hawaiian Nation intact...Ho`omanawanui. With deep reverence and gratitude to our founders for the legacy of abundance which we are experiencing on these beautiful shores, we send each and every one of you our deepest aloha and mahalo.

Our most memorable club activity was the annual scholarship fundraiser this past May. Highlights of the event were a royal reception, sumptuous fare, silent auction and top island entertainment including Weldon Kekauoha highlighted the event. Kaleo Trinidad, Tracie & Keawe Lopes, Napua Greig, Kawika Trask and Manu Boyd all paid tribute to our honorees through mele and hula. What a fabulous night. The theme for the ball was “Ka Nani Mau Loa o ke Kulaiwi” (The Everlasting Beauty of Hawai’i, Our Home). We honored three outstanding community leaders who contributed significantly to the well-being of our community: Debbie Nakanelua-Richards, Senior Manager, Government & Community Relations, Hawaiian Airlines. Retired Kahu David Kauweloa Kaupu (Chaplain) of Kamehameha Schools.  Dr. Randie Kamuela Fong, Vice President, Ho'okahua Cultural Vibrancy Division, Kamehameha Schools. The Holoku Ball is one of Hawaii’s oldest traditions. The Hawaiian Civic Club of Honolulu has sponsored it for more than 80 years as an annual scholarship fundraiser. The proceeds generated from this event has assisted over 2,000 talented and deserving Hawaiian students in pursuing their educational endeavors at colleges and universities in Hawai’i and throughout the Mainland. Over $75,000 in scholarship funds was awarded last year to 56 recipients. Another aspect of the Holoku Ball is that it provides opportunities to mentor club members, the students and scholarship recipients in leadership skills. Being involved with the planning and implementation of the ball helps everyone in developing hands on experience in leadership, teamwork, fellowship and celebrate the success of the ball. - Our Clubs 95th Birthday Celebration was held in December 2013. - Club members attended Ali’i Sundays. - Club members also participated in various legislative hearings regarding Hawaiian entitlements and rights that were challenged throughout the year and held a DOI information meeting for its members. -25 members served as delegates at the AOHCC Convention on Kauai this past October. All members actively participated in the convention activities. -The kupuna and senior members participated in the annual Bake sale fundraiser at Nake’u Awai Christmas Faire. Everyone had a great time. - Beautiful afternoon spent with the kupuna of Lunalilo Home as the members’ kanikapila, hula and talk story. -The annual Christmas Party was held at Hee Hing Chop Suey and included elections for new officers and board members. –Our club was responsible for the 143rd birthday commemoration of Prince Jonah Kühiö Kalanianaole Services at Mauna’ala the Royal Mausoleum this year. -Big Mahalo to HCCH member Manu Boyd for his support as the MC for the Kühiö Day Parade in March and the three vehicles entered by the club as they participated with their ohana. -In July a HCCH Cultural Day gathering for club members and family was held at Kualoa Park.

In 54 years HCCW has continued our mission – to inspire, educate, and encourage all things Hawaiian, seen and unseen and together: “e kūka‘awe i nā kapu o Kūkaniloko no ka mea aloha nō ho‘i kākou ia lākou i nā kau a kau…” “to guard the kapu of Kukaniloko because we love them for all time...” To protect, preserve and perpetuate our ‘āina (family), iwikupuna, kupuna ma, and na ‘ōpio are foremost on our agenda. Second, third and fourth generation descendants of the original founding members continue to support their forefathers as HCCW members. We honor Kupuna Roselia Poepoe and Kupuna Rose Kauhane who are our last living Founding and Charter Members of 54 years in 2014. E ola no! The Friends of Kūkaniloko and Na Wahine Kunia ‘o Līhu‘e are rooted in the Hawaiian Civic Club of Wahiawā. Established to guard our traditional comprehension of the 36,000 acres of kalana Kūkaniloko, members work diligently, individually and collectively, as Kūkaniloko is revealed. Her face is known and can be seen. Her story is told, again and again. The intensity of those who care for her is instilled in those whom come to listen so they can see; and they come from around the world. They come to see her majesty and embrace her noble history of which we, the Hawaiian Civic Club of Wahiawā, are proud descendants; family of the lands of kalana Kūkaniloko...eō E pule kākou: “When the life force of an Ali‘i was to enter this earthly realm, this our paradise, all work ceased. This, a most solemn of occasion, released from the people the energy factor or mana that transcends from the ‘āina. Prayer emanated throughout the land. What was welling up in the hearts and minds of Hawai‘i nei was that the gods,

HCCW started 2014 with the O‘ahu Council meeting in January, two Ali'i Sundays in February and numerous fundraisers throughout the year serving onolicious plate lunches and our now acclaimed specialty, Malasadas. Hats off to our opio for participating with us in the Kuhio and Kamehameha Day parades. We were blessed to have Miss Waikiki, Ka’iulani Carr, march with us for Kamehameha Day. HCCW looks forward to the Aloha Festivals and Waimanalo Christmas parades. In between fundraisers and parades, April brought our club and community together in various ways: Canvasing for the Hawaiian Roll; Mourning the loss of our beloved and long time member and community leader, Aunty Niki Hines; and representation at the O‘ahu Council meeting. Spotlight in May goes to our Hope Pelekikena 'Elua, Kui Mahoe, for welcoming our community to the cinema with HCCW's Eddie Aikau "Free" Movie Night at Blanche Pope Elementary School. Free hotdogs and popcorn accompanied an educational movie documentary on one of Hawaii's most respected legends. Our special guest, Mr. Clyde Aikau, Eddie's brother, amused the crowd with Eddie Aikau trivia and Eddie Aikau apparel and memorabilia for prizes. Mahalo to our Hope Pelekikena Mua, Faith Ka'iama, for spearheading our biggest event this year so far, Lau Le'a. On May 16th we honored our Kupuna, Aunty Pansy "Ku'ulei" Aila, for her dedication, love and hard work from inception of our club in 1966 and still serving as a Director with her mana'o today. Lots of love and aloha permeated the air at this convention fundraiser. This all Hawaiian luau was a huge success! A fun filled night under the guava moon for our communities from all over who came to enjoy, rest and relax with ohana and hoaaloha.

The Officers, Board of Directors, and members of the Lualualei Hawaiian Civic Club (LHCC) have been active not only within the ahupua‘a of Lualualei, but throughout the entire Wai‘anae coast. LHCC members continue to keep actively involved in civic and community issues along the Wai’anae coast and continue to form partnerships with other groups in the area of education, environment, health, land, culture, and all levels of government, while still engaging in other Civic Club endeavors. Through combining LHCC membership with our church, professional, and various other community organization and group affiliations, we strive to make the entire Wai’anae coast community a better place to live, work and raise a vibrant ‘ohana. According to the traditional land map of Oahu, Lualualei is the largest ahupua‘a in the Wai‘anae Moku. As such, we feel a sense of responsibility to do outreach and recruit for membership of more Native Hawaiians living in our ahupua‘a. It is our sincere hope that our club’s mission of service and outreach will inspire more Hawaiians to join

As a new club, this year we were excited to kick off our first program which brought live Hawaiian music in to nursing homes around the island of O'ahu. The project was very well received, and we are looking forward to growing and expanding it in 2015. We also have been working hard on "The Gabby and Emily Pahinui Scholarship Fund", which may begin to be administered as early as late 2014.

QEHCC wrote a letter to President Barack Obama with a “Request to Reinstate and Honor 1893 Executive Agreements between Queen Liliu‘okalani and President Grover Cleveland that Promised to Restore the Hawaiian Kingdom”. QEHCC submitted a legal brief that supports the fact that the Kingdom of Hawaii still exist citing unique and compelling legal arguments which clarifies this claim. The legal brief contains exhibits, the international law and constitutional sites, applicable case law, provisions of the Hague and Geneva Convention, UN Charter Provision and other legal authorities.

We are very excited this year to be able to support three ‘ōpio in their educational journey in seeking higher education. These ‘ōpio are attending UH Hilo and UH Mānoa and are seeking degrees in the fields of Psychology, Accounting, and Linguistics/Japanese Studies. Waikīkī HCC and ‘Ahahui Siwila Hawai‘i o Kapolei continue to partner on a variety of traditional knowledge projects that honor our culture. In March, we provided our second annual imu workshop for the Kapolei community that utilizes the imu that is available on the ‘āina near the Hawai‘i Maoli office. At our workshop we also made kūlolo and we were so amazed that even though the ua blessed us throughout the night that upon opening the imu in the morning that all of the food in the imu were fully cooked and ono as ever. In September, our traditional knowledge project was hosted at Ka Papa Lo‘i ‘o Kānewai and we were blessed to have cultural practitioners that shared the art of making inamona, constructing traditional lamakū torches, and hīpu‘u style lei making. We look forward to continuing these traditions and sharing them with our ‘ōpio. Waikīkī HCC would like to also highlight our 2013 traditional project that was called “Ka Wai o ka Niu Haohao”. Our niu project shared the various uses of the coconut tree, leaves, and fruit to make things like coconut milk, coconut woven baskets, bowls, hats, coconut oil, haupia, and a he‘e dish that incorporated freshly squeezed coconut milk, lime, cucumber, and pa‘akai. Hū ka ‘ono! This year we also bid our fond aloha to one of our kupuna members, Gilbert Stanley Nobrega Jr. who resided in Hanapēpē, Kaua‘i. He and his ‘ohana have always shared the art of making pa‘akai with Waikīkī HCC and we are thankful for the aloha that he shared.

Alika K. Maunakea Ph.D. Assistant Professor, University of Hawaii, Manoa, JABSOM Evaluating the Impact of a Community-based Diabetes Intervention on Disease Management and the Epigenomes of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Peoples. Alika is the great-grandson of the late Kupuna Katherine Maunakea of Nanakuli who immersed him in traditional Hawaiian medicine, language, culture, and history. From integrating these experiences with that of biomedical research, Alika has come to view that the traditional native Hawaiian concept of health is compatible with the epigenetic basis for development of disease. He graduated from Kamehameha Schools in 1997, and earned his B.S. in biology and Ph.D. in biomedical sciences from Creighton University and the University of San Francisco, California, respectively. After working at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, Alika has joined the faculty of the University of Hawaii, Manoa conducting biomedical research in the Department of Native Hawaiian Health at the John A. Burns School of Medicine. Alika’s research focuses on understanding the molecular interactions of environmental and epigenetic processes that collectively may underlie elevated risk to cardiometabolic and neurodevelopmental diseases observed in indigenous populations, results of which would enable preventative care. Presentation: Native Hawaiians bear a disproportionate burden of type 2 diabetes than other populations. To address this growing disparity, we are examining how a culturally-tailored, evidence-based intervention designed to improve glycemic control modifies inflammation and glucose homeostasis in diabetic individuals. Results of this study offer significant implications towards reversing diabetes disparities.

I’m the eldest of 3 children, have 3 children and am married to Eddie Akau, Jr of Pearl City, O‘ahu. Following in the foot steps of my late grandmother Elaine Flores as well as my parents Willy and Lorna Akima, I am a 3rd generation member of the Waimea Hawaiian Civic Club, as well as a former president and former board member of the club. The last few years I have been a delegate at the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Convention under Hui Hawai‘i o Tenesi. For the last 5 or more years I have been the Associations Sergeant of Arms under the presidency of Aunty Toni Lee, Aunty Leimomi Kahn and Soulee Stroud. I also served as co-chair on the Associations Education Committee. I went to elementary school in Kahalu‘u, O‘ahu, then and a semester at Samuel Wilder King Intermediate School before moving to Hawai‘i Island where I attended Waimea Intermediate and later graduated from Parker School. I received my Associates and Bachelors degree in Business Administration from American Intercontinental University in 2006. In 1993, along with other community members of Waimea it was our desire to bring the ‘ōlelo makuahine to our community. In 1995, Pūnana Leo o Waimea became a reality for Waimea and its nearby communities. A kumu position opened at the school, I took a leap of faith and in 1995 my career as an educator began. In 2000, I left Pūnana Leo and joined Kanu o Ka ‘Āina New Century Public Charter School where I taught for 13 years. Besides teaching in the classroom, for a few years I ran the afterschool and intersession cultural programs. As a kumu for Nā Pua No‘eau West Hawai‘i unit we have been able to provide cultural summer programs for the children of Ka‘ū and Waimea. The last three summers, I worked as a cultural advisor in the education center at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, teaching basic Hawaiian language class twice a month. School year 2014, Ua ho‘i wau i ka piko. I returned to the nest where my teaching career began except this time I am teaching elementary age students at ‘Alo Kēhau o Ka ‘Āina Mauna a satellite school of Nāwahīokalani‘opu‘u a kaiā ‘ōlelo school. Since 1991, I began dancing for Hālau Hula Kealaonāmaupua under Kumu Pua Case and a few years ago completed the kuleana to become a kumu alaka‘i. At 5 a.m. three times a week I attend cross fit where I am a member of Cross fit All-star in Waimea. As an educator I believe in “Pa‘a ka waha, nānā ka maka , ho‘olohe ka pepeiao a laila hana ka lima. My favorite and ongoing theme is ‘O wai lā ‘oe? (Who you?) Activities to help my students understand who they are take place in and out of the classroom. My passion is teaching and allowing my students to learn outside of the classroom.

FILMS Film - Ho‘oku‘ikahi: To Unify As One By Meleanna Aluli Meyer, Keola Lake, and Lisa Altieri Monday October 27, 2014 7:00pm - 8:00pm Paniolo III Tuesday October 28, 2014 7:00pm - 8:00pm Paniolo III Ho‘oku‘ikahi: To Unify as One documents not only commemorative events in 1991 that took place a Pu‘ukohola heiau, Kawaihae, Hawai‘i marking the 200 year anniversary of the building and consecration of Kamehameha the First’s temple of state, but ongoing cultural practices that Hawaiians from around the state participate in today. This documentary was created to honor our ancestors, to support the native language and traditional values of kanaka maoli and to encourage deep respect and care for the land and other natural resources, as well as nuture an ongoing commitment to the wellness of mind, body and spirit. This work also supports efforts aimed at developing vital links betwen Polynesian peoples of the Pacific. This too is a journey to rediscover what is necessary for the perpetuation of a people, to create opportunities for all in our community, to succeed as ‘ohana, family - as pili aloha, one to the other, bound by love.

Film - Joseph Nāwahī A production of the Biographical Research Center Monday October 27, 2014 8:00pm - 9:00pm Paniolo III Tuesday October 28, 2014 8:00pm - 9:00pm Paniolo III A writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, newspaper editor, and artist, Joseph Nāwahī was a Hawaiian patriot and Renaissance man. Born in Puna, Hawai‘i in 1842, he was an outstanding pupil at the Hilo Boarding School, Lahainaluna on Maui, and the Royal School in Honolulu. Elected to the legislature of the Kingdom in 1872, he represented Hilo for nine terms over the next twenty years. A trusted advisor of Lili‘uokalani during the last months of the monarchy, Nāwahī played a leading role in Hawaiian nationalist politics. He and his wife, Emma, helped to found the Hui Aloha ‘Āina political party and its newspaper Ke Aloha Aina, as they worked tirelessly and selflessly to stop annexation, and to restore Hawai‘i’s independence as a nation. His editorials and speeches are some of the most passionate and articulate expressions of faith in the Hawaiian people. Imprisoned for acts deemed “treasonous” to the government that had overthrown the monarchy in 1893, his time in jail seriously affected his health, and he died in 1896. This documentary not only informs viewers about one of Hawai‘i’s most ardent patriots, but also opens a window on those events and times that dramatically changed our history. Nāwahī’s involvement in education, politics, and journalism naturally leads to the larger story of nineteenth-century Hawaiians and their struggle to remain independent. At the same time, because the story focuses on a single participant, it shows us the larger events of history through the eyes of one centrally situated man. His life story resonates especially for Hawaiians, and people throughout the Pacific, who struggle daily for recognition, pride, and justice for their cultures. In keeping with Nāwahī’s own devotion to Hawaiian language and culture, this hour-long documentary has two versions— English and Hawaiian. Both appear on this DVD.


WORKSHOPS HAWAIIAN NAME GIVING “Tigers die and leave their skins,” goes an ancient Japanese proverb, “people die and leave their names.” So much of who we are as individuals, the places our families live, and the hopes we wrap around our children can be found in the names we wear.  Along with identity, names can recount family mo‘olelo and preserve events for generations to come.  Join Hailama Farden for a cultural experience on name giving.  In this presentation, he will share some examples and personal stories of Hawaiian inoa – inoa kūpuna, inoa ho‘omana‘o, inoa kūamuamu, hō‘ailona and ‘ūlāleo.  The group will also sing some mele inoa and discuss haku mele techniques related to composing a mele inoa.    Hailama was raised in Wai‘anae, O‘ahu by his paternal grandparents, Rudolph and Harriet Farden.  Under the constant guidance and mentorship of kūpuna, many of whom were born during the era in which Hawaiian was still spoken; Hailama learned the importance of name giving.  He includes, among his kūpuna mentors, Elizabeth Kauahipaula, Emma Sharpe, Irmgard ‘Āluli, Sarah Nākoa, Violet Hughes, Sol. K. Bright and Nāpua Stevens-Piore.  Auntie Nāpua Stevens was respected as one of the last name givers (in the traditional sense).  She inherited this gift from her grandfather.  From the age of 15 to 20, Hailama spent many hours learning from Aunty Nāpua about name giving.

UTILIZING TECHNOLOGY: Convention Electronic Documents, Tips & Tricks How can Office and PDF's help? An introduction to computer applications and tools that Hawaiian Civic Clubs can utilize to help communicate, collaborate, share, and preserve historical documents effectively. Learn which applications are best for specific projects hear tips and tricks to help get the most out of them. Who should attend?

Presenter is Kaipo Granito.

PONO ECONOMICS This is a two-part workshop on pono economics for the Hawaiian Nation. Part I focuses on building cultural values into the economic foundation of the nation.  Part II provides opportunities for rethinking how these values are expressed in economic exchanges, with two examples of projects that are already underway.

THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE: Hawaiian Self-Determination - Perspectives of Civic Club Leaders This purpose of this workshop is to explore several models of self-governance and their impact on Native Hawaiians and the community at large so that civic club members will make informed decisions on Hawaiian self-governance. Featuring civic club members, Skippy Ioane, Hui Pū Laka Hawaiian Civic Club; Keoni Agard, Queen Emma Hawaiian Civic Club; and Michelle Kauhane, ‘Ahahui Sīwila Hawai'i O Kapolei, this promises to be a dynamic workshop.  We shall attempt to describe different political options, such as restoration, international recognition, state and federal recognition and the importance of recognizing who we are, spiritually and culturally, to enable us to make informed decisions in the future.   This workshop is in support of the AHCC resolution 13-33, Reaffirming the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Commitment to Conducting Nationhood Dialogues.

THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE: Hawaiian Self-Determination - Constitution 101 In a few months, Native Hawaiians will be called upon to elect delegates to a constitutional convention for the purpose of developing a constitution for self-governance. The purpose of this workshop is to educate civic club members on the importance of this work and the elements of a constitution, to motivate them to attend more indepth education on this subject in the months to come, and to encourage civic club members to become delegates to a constitutional convention.   We shall explore the Hawaiian Kingdom and State of Hawaii constitutions and we will learn about the opportunity we have to fashion a constitution that is reflective of the culture and values of our native people.  Speakers include Breann Swann Nuuhiwa, author, “Government of the People by the People, for the People:   Cultural Sovereignty, Civil Rights, and Good Native Hawaiian Governance”; and Alan Murakami, Litigation Director, Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation.  A must attend workshop, learning about the Hawaiian Kingdom constitutions is fascinating as we go back in time to review their provisions and the influences and conditions that helped shape the constitutions of the 1800 and 1900 centuries.

Kamanamaikalani Beamer, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Hui ‘Āina Momona program at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. He serves in the Hawai‘inuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge and in the William S. Richardson School of Law as part of Ka Huli Ao Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law.

Many Association members and clubs participated in community meetings over the past three years to help shape this strategic vision that looks ahead to the next 25 years and describes a thriving Lāhui where our learners achieve postsecondary educational success, enabling good life and career choices, and where learners are grounded in Christian and Hawaiian values and will be leaders who contribute to their communities, locally and globally!  Jack will also discuss the Strategic Plan for the first five years that charts five key goals to guide Kamehameha Schools to achieve the generational vision. Everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.

CARING FOR OUR KUPUNA - Ola Kane ame Ola Wahine No Ke Ola Pono o Na Kane, an initiative proposed and guided by Dr. Claire Hughes and others, kane hui were created in numerous communities on O‘ahu and several neighbor islands. These led to a large amount of data from the attendees, and a commitment to improving their own health.

Based on the success of this initiative, and sensitivity to gender-specific sharing, it is proposed that we have kukakuka at the Convention of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. There will be facilitators setting the stage for the mana‘o of the attendees, and then a general call to kukakuka. Wahine facilitator is Dee-Ann Carpenter, MD; Kane facilitator is Kalani Brady, MD.
