MAI LOKO MAI O KE KUMU MAOLI Throughout the pae ʻāina our lāhui and kaiāulu are all advocating for protection of our kumu maoli. One of the the kumu maoli that Manokalanipō wanted to bring to the forefront with our theme and logo is our wai resources that we are protecting in every moku of Kauaʻi. It is important for each of us to continue to remind our policy makers that they have a duty under the public trust doctrine to both preserve the rights of present and future generations in our water resources. As Native Hawaiian cultural practitioners, we also need to be concerned about how diversions interrupt ma uka to ma kai stream flow and results in reduced discharge of freshwater into the near shore marine areas, which negatively impacts our ability to continue Native Hawaiian traditional and customary practices that feeds our ʻohana. 3

A Message from the President Aloha, we have spent so much time getting to this point….and what is the point? Okay, here is where we are….we have created a 501 c 3 organization….a receptacle for the greater work of our organization….we have a remarkable man, Ron Jarrett, our Econ. Dev. Chair and a successful businessman, who is willing to create a pathway for us….recipient of millions of dollars for the benefit of social welfare issues…. Here is the challenge….no longer are we talking about scholarships, education….rather we are talking about those issues that impact the deepest, most important parts of our lives….our community who are homeless, who are starving, who are impoverished…..those members we don’t want to talk about….. I am so sick of the silence…..I am so tired of it….here is the message of the President of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs…..let us reach out to people in need…the Hawaiian poor, the Hawaiian homeless, the Hawaiian underemployed, yes, I get it….they are not members…but they are Hawaiians and they are in need…and we are able to help them…..we can create a program for the welfare of Native Hawaiians! Here is my message….let us stop being insular….let us stop giving money to the easy stuff….educational scholarships….gifted kids……let us talk about Hawaiians in need…..and let us talk about how we can help them…..there it is….the President’s message…..let us expand our work and have some powerful effect on the day to day lives of Hawaiians in need…..no trumpets, no drums sounding our triumph…..just careful, calm, thoughtful solutions for our people in need….what say you? Can we just reach out to those people that need our help….who won’t bring us accolades…but who’s comfort will give us a good night’s rest knowing we did something good. A President’s message? My message is that we must lift ourselves outside of our comfort level and move into the area of discomfort….the area of need, pain, daily danger…….can we expand our reach to the untouchables…. At the end of the day, we can do more….let us take the first, most important step to help Hawaiians in need…..and let us see where it leads us….here is the President’s message…..such as it is….mahalo for listening….sorry it has taken so long.

Aloha mai Kakou! Moku o Keawe extends its congratulations and best wishes to Moku o Manokalanipo. Mahalo nui loa for hosting this year’s convention! Moku o Keawe continued to engage its member clubs in a facilitated process of Strategic Planning at itʻs retreats and quarterly meetings. At the end of 2017 and into the beginning of 2018 the Council voted on and refined itʻs Ala Nuʻukia, or strategic vision: E Piʻi ma ke Kuamoʻo i Mana ka Lāhui a Ola ka ʻĀina. Ascending on the backbone of our ancestors, leads to an empowered nation and thriving lands. BUILDING ON THE INNOVATIONS AND FOUNDATION OF THE PAST TO ENSURE A HEALTHY ʻĀINA AND A THRIVING LĀHUI FOR THE FUTURE. This is the vision that has been adopted for the next 25 -100 years, or in a different framing, the next 1-4 generations. This vision statement will guide the actions, projects, goals, and undertakings of the Council. A 5-10 year strategic plan has yet to be developed to define the work that will guide us through the incremental steps to attaining our goals of an empowered nation and thriving lands for our people. Alignment to the strategic vision will ensure that we are engaging in a pono fashion on a trajectory to attaining our goals. As I come to the end of my term as Council pelekikena, I mahalo the Executive Board, pelekikena, alaka’i and clubs for their dedication to the Council and Association.They have all made positive impacts in their communities by keeping engaged and focused on our purposes and objectives Their leadership is unrivaled!

Hawaiian Civic Club of Hilo engaged in a series of ʻOlelo Hawaiʻi lessons, taught by member, Dr. Kū Kahakalau. Members learned and practiced ways of introducing ourselves, identifying our birthplace, current home, rivers, valleys, seas, villages and communities and reciting our moʻokūʻauhau in a very simple format. Several members of the club volunteered in key positions for the recent Ka ʻAha Hula ʻO Hālauaola World Hula Conference which was held in June in Hilo. Host to over 1,000 participants from Hawaiʻi, the U.S. Continent and several countries around the world, this was a 10-day event which provided workshops, seminars, huakaʻi and performances for attendees and the island community. Members also engaged in fund-raising activities during the Hula Conference and are currently seeking applicants for an educational scholarship which will be awarded to a student attending Hawaiʻi Community College or University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo in Spring 2019. The club members continue to work closely with the Hilo and Hawaiʻi Island community to foster civic engagement and open and respectful discussion on the myriad of political and community issues that affect our island.

Aloha a me ka Ano'ai, mai Moku O Keawe mai o Kohala... March 2018 - our club fed the Kamehameha Schools 4th graders as they visited our area of our Moku. These 85 keiki came from Kapalama Campus on O'ahu. While at Kohala they journey to the birthplace of our Ali'i Nui; and they see Mo'okini Heiau; as they travel through our town they learn how Kohala' got its place names and the story of the Ali'i' journey towards the valleys to the safety of Awini, where he was raised from infancy. This visit became our clubs fundraiser. KamehamehaStatue, the oldest public sculpture in the State, needed help again. Every year, twice, the statue is cleaned; but every ten years the statue needs to have the paint stripped, thorough cleaning, repairs, and repainted to the cost estimate of $40K. Sharon Hayden got help from Christine at the KRC and monies raise went past to what was needed. Once again the Kamehameha Statue at Kohala gets the "love" from the community, and Sharon and her many Kokua.

We continue to expand and improve our program honoring the life and legacy of Prince Jonah Kūhiō through ʻolelo, mele and hula. We had performances throughout the month of March at the Kauaʻi Museum, the Princeville Library and The Cliffs at Princeville. In March we also attended the Commemorative Services at Prince Kūhiō’s birthplace and cultural preserve in Hoai, Kualu, Kōloa, Kauaʻi. In April many parts of Kauaʻi experienced historic, devastating flooding. Many of our members from Hanalei to Hāʻena are still recovering from the damage. We canceled May Day by the Bay and instead organized the Aloha Haleleʻa Flood Relief Concert in September, with the proceeds benefiting Kauaʻi Habitat for Humanity, who will be assisting with the rebuilding efforts. May Day by the Bay will be back strong in 2019. Our other cultural event Ka Moku O Manokalanipō Pāʻani Makahiki will be held in February 2019. We took the event around the island and will now settle in a permanent location in Līhuʻe.

This year we were inundated by flood waters. Even thought we experienced this challenge, we attempted to keep things running as usual. We gave one of our scholarships to William Kinney who is completing his B.A. in English at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. We are very proud of his accomplishments. Even with the community in a state of rebuilding we continued to fulfill our mission through our canoe club. We were able to send one ʻōpio crew to the Stat Canoe Race at Keʻehi where they took third place. We are still rebuilding and we hope that the coming year will bring back stability. We would also like to give our deepest thanks to all the people and canoe clubs that helped us in our rebuilding efforts.

This year we also partnered with the West Kauaʻi Business & Professional Association to put on the King Kaumualiʻi Celebration. Once again we were asked to provide the Hawaiian food for the event and we were honored to do so for an event that raises awareness about and honors King Kaumualiʻi. Kaumualiʻi HCC also participated in the Prince Kūhiō Commemorative Services hosted by the Royal Order of Kamehameha 1st Chapter 3, Kaumuali'i and Nā Wahine Hui O Kamehameha. Kaumualiʻi HCC club members participate in monthly meetings that involve State of Hawaiʻi Parks representatives and numerous representatives from the westside community including Russian representatives that live in Hawaiʻi. One of the outcomes of this new partnership was to co-sponsor a presentation on Pā'ula'ula or more commonly known as Russian Fort Elizabeth with speaker Dr. Peter Mills with the Friends of King Kaumualiʻi and the Waimea Theatre. It was well attended and was very informative. In addition we have been assisting with the building of and maintenance of a new website for this project- http://paulaula.org

AOKHCC continues to diligently adhere to its administrative duties such as holding board and general membership meetings each month, maintaining an annual budget, and executing programing projects through standing committees like scholarship, website, health education, and community outreach. AOKHCC also partners with local community organizations for joint events for health and education with Hawaiian cultural focus. In March, `Āinahau once again hosted a lunch for Kapa`a Middle School Ukulele Band and Choir. On that same day, we also presented a Native Hawaiian Game booth at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific’s International Children’s Day, and again in September at the E Hula Mau competition also in Long Beach. Once in the Spring and again for Christmas, we brought mele and hula to the elderly at St. Francis Home and Catered Manor. We participated in another successful fundraising weekend celebrating with HICCSC at their 40th annual Ho`olaulea at Alondra Park in Lawndale. This year at our 36th annual Scholarship Aha`aina, we honored Kumu (all of which were Civic Club members) by bringing back the hula they have shared with us over the past 20 years. Our theme was “Ma ka hana ka `ike” - in working, one learns, of which there could be no more fitting of a theme to describe what we do as an organization. This event continues to be the culmination of our year, and we are proud to say, that everything that goes on this evening; the food prep, serving, hula, music, decoration, is all done by AOKHCC members. We have made great strides on our website (aokhcc.org) this year and look forward to using this site as a powerful tool allowing to reach more and more Hawaiians and Hawaiians-at-Heart, spreading the Aloha Spirit and the values and vision of Prince Kuhio, as well as honoring the Kupua that have formed the foundation on which our club is built on.

In our club, weʻve created our Huliau Series, the purpose of which is to reintroduce traditional practices and knowledge systems to our people outside of ka pae ʻāina, emphasizing how these can and should be implemented here in Utah, and on the continent and elsewhere. Itʻs been extremely well received, and watching understanding and what weʻve termed “Hiʻiaka Moments” happen right in front of our eyes has been the biggest measurement of success for us. We look forward to continuing the series in the winter months. We have also created what is intended to be yearly events, a Kūpuna Luncheon, a Pō Mākua, and Lā ʻOhana. These were created so we can make sure we mālama our relationships with each generation and continue to seek out ways to meet the needs of our community. We are humbled to serve and excited to bring this to our community. Mahalo nui, Tina Cabiles-Carden Pelekikena, Hui Hawai'i O Utah Hawaiian Civic Club

Panoa has had a pretty quiet (business) year due to illnesses and hospital stays however, when we meet (on a quarterly basis), the meetings are lively and discussions certainly informative. We have been planning our very first lu'au for about a year now and it looks like it's finally going happen as we celebrate the birthday of Prince Kuhio in 2019. The menu has been decided and volunteers recruited; the location, still pending, will be in Moreno Valley. Board members have been busy with kuleana related to the Mainland Council as the Hope Pelekikena 'Ekahi of the Council is also the Pelekikena of Panoa. The Pu'uku of the Council is also the Vice President of Panoa and the President Iho Nei of the Council is also the Treasurer of Panoa; so many hats; so much kuleana. Panoa has joined the Moreno Valley Chamber of Commerce and continue to network with local businesses; unlike a civic club but definitely with a purpose to do community outreach. We are making new connections and creating visibility in a community where Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders are few and far between; not surprising since we are located at the rim of the eastern most deserts in Southern California. We are in the trenches planning the celebration of the 40th year of the annual ho'olaule'a in the city of Lawndale. The Pelekikena of the Hawaiian Inter club Council of Southern California, host of this amazing community event, is also the Vice President of Panoa. This year the ho'olaule'a will play host to Ka 'Ohana o Kalaupapa; they will bring to the ho'olaule'a their award wining exhibition "A Source of Light, Constant and Never Ending" about the strong relationship between the Royal family and the people of Kalaupapa. Mahalo Ke Akua for the blessings.......

We started our new year and leadership with the question "He 'aha ka manao o Aloha?" to engage our club members to malama our hui. We watch with concern as an ever so busy world tries to usurp our place of importance in the lives and time of everyone around us. Our 'ohana faces a changing world that we need one another to get through, yet we see the calendar say, "no time for this". In spite of it, we carry on, however small, to live and share aloha. We continued with our "Na Waiwai 'o Hawai'i" series, with each ohana sharing their thoughts and stories about how these values have evolved in their lives and how they will commit themselves going forward. We are also seeking out our Utah Kupuna, especially those who may be here alone, so that we can malama them and learn from their wisdom and experience. We have combined with Hui o Hawai'i O Utah for the Huliau Series starting with "Kaulana Mahina" and "E Pele E" and learned from Auntie Tina Cabiles-Carden. She also attended one of our meetings and taught us to chant Our participation at Iosepa was a special year as we committed our dear Andrea Iona Sheehan to her resting place there in the cemetery, our choir singing a medley of songs she loved. As her marker said "Pure Aloha." Uncle David Kaleikini, the father of one of our members, was also buried there that day. Our group performed again this year sharing the stage with past haumana of Bill Kelly, one of this club's founders, joining us. We humbly seek kokua from our Kupuna and alaka'i of this association as we go forward, learn, and strengthen our hui. Mahalo ‘oukou!

Ke Ali’i David La’amea Kalakaua Hawaiian Civic Club of Wisconsin was chartered at the 2012 AOHCC Convention in Washington DC. Our small but committed membership has enjoyed sponsoring educational / cultural and social events over the years. We initially alternated an annual Hula & Ukulele Workshop with a May Day / Lei Day celebration. More recently, the May Day / Lei Day celebration has become our major fund raising event. We established a library of Hawaiian books, music, and games for member access, including a variety of cultural, historical, and biographical information. The library consists of items donated by members, books from Kamehameha Press, and items donated from the personal libraries of our kupuna. Members can borrow from the 100+ resources and are encouraged to share learnings during member meetings. We continue to focus on expanding club membership, and have added a few new members in 2018. Ne‘epapa I Mua Me Ke Aloha - we are “moving forward with strength and aloha”!

February 27 - Breakfast with Hawai`i Governor David Ige. Nine members of the Native Hawaiian Washington, D.C. metropolitan community met with Governor David Ige. They represented Ke Ali`i Maka`ainana Hawaiian Civic Club, Hawai`i State Society, Kamehameha Schools Alumni-East Coast Chapter, University of Hawai`i Alumni Association-National Capital Region and Halau Nohona Hawai`i. Our first question was posed by Leila Marie Keaunui-Kuali`i Butts, youth leader of KAMHCC. How are you keeping students of Hawai`i safe from gun violence? In just 50 minutes, topics ranged from gun violence/gun control, Hawai`i's Civil Defense system, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs revenue stream from ceded land income, DHHL's capacity to place qualified Native Hawaiians back on the `aina, homelessness, the building of Tiny Homes along the Waianae coast, care and programming for Veterans, education programs in High School - pre-college credits and enrollment, college enrollment incentives to attract continent applicants returning home and college programs that target an "almost pau" population of adult learners. Our goal in this meeting was to more fully understand "what is" so that we might better appreciate how Hawaiians on the continent can assist in "what can be". Our work is ahead!

We have been blessed throughout the year with Papa Ola Lokahi sharing their mana'o and allowing us to be creative with the tools they have shared. Our community learned and experienced lei po'o making, lomilomi, cordage, laulau with sweet potato and we also learned about diabetes, wellness, high blood pressure and more. We are humbled by the warms and knowledge of Papa Ola Lokahi and we thank them for always keeping us connected to our history. Our Club is still projecting a strong Strategic Plan that has not come into effect yet but by the end of 2018 we should have all our planning in place. NKOH Hawaiian Civic Club looks forward for our annual Christmas Pa'ina at the end of 2018 and we are excited for 2019 starting in January with Aloha Days, Papa Ola Lokahi and a concert by Kaumaka'iwa Kanaka'ole.

Founded by Prince Kalanianaʻole on December 6, 1918, The Hawaiian Civic Club of Honolulu continues to celebrate our 1918-2018 centennial with aloha and pride for all those who guided this ʻahahui over the past 100 years. In January, our officers and directors were ceremonially installed by Kahu David Kaupu at Helumoa Hale at Royal Hawaiian Center. Our first-ever Kūpuna Kūkākūkā oral history gathering in March brought five long-time civic club members together to share lifetimes of moʻolelo: Bobbie Mills Dias, Gladys Rodenhurst, Ann Nathaniel, Jalna Keala and Albert Silva. Mahalo nui to the Office and Hawaiian Affairs and Kamehameha Schools for their generous support. The Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana‘ole Commemoration at Maunaʻala on March 26 brought together Royal Societies, civic club members, community leaders and ‘ohana for a service led by Kahu Kaupu. A poignant presentation of mele and ʻōlelo by haumāna from Kūhiō Elementary School in Mōʻiliʻili was enjoyed by the more than 100 in attendance. Holokū Ball – our HCCH Scholarhip Fund Benefit Gala – was held in Iwilei at the Pōmaikaʻi Ballroom. ʻOno cuisine, beautiful decorations, a holokū parade and nahenahe music by Keauhou and Aaron Salā were among the highlights. Mahalo nui to our coroporate sponsors, donors, volunteersw and all who attended. This year, HCCH was able to provide more than $25,000 in post-secondary scholarships to haumāna Hawaiʻi. Also in March, the moʻolelo of our cenetennial was artfully shared in song and dance at the Kamehameha Schools Kapālama Song Contest. In June, HCCH participated in the King Kamehameha Celebration Parade as Grand Marshall. Additional activities throughout the year include general fund and convention fundraisers, membership meetings, board meetings and Aliʻi Sundays at Kawaiahaʻo Church, AHCC Convention, Maunaʻala chapel maintenance and more.

 Aloha kākou e nā ʻohana: The King Kamehameha Hawaiian Civic Club celebrated its 50th year in 2017 with a sold out dinner held at the Saint Louis Club House with the energy of a “family reunion”. It was a great event that brought Kupuna and club members from other areas to McCully to celebrate. It was a moment to reflect on the hard work done by all in the past and present to build and sustain our club. Honorees acknowledged; Kupuna Gladys Rodenhurst (an original founder of KKHC), Ike Kaaihue for his invaluable guidance and Malia Kaaihue (non-member) as an emerging Native Hawaiian leader. Though blessed with a rainy day, the Prince Kūhiō Festival and the hōʻikeʻike event was held at Kapiolani Park. Many people said it was a blessing and we continued to hoʻomau! KKHCC sold out of fried opelu plates anyway. Next KKHCC participated in a community Charity Walk held at Ala Moana Beach Park, feeding volunteers and participants. At the King Kamehameha Hoʻolauleʻa in June, the club sold ʻono fish plates and it was a success! In June, the club participated at Mauna’ala in cleaning the chapel, crypt, graves and grounds. It is always an honor to continue to serve our kūpuna aliʻi at their final resting place in Nu’uanu. Our scholarship recipient Matthew Hirayama is attending Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ; majoring in analytical business. KKHCC plans to close this year once more assisting with a charitable event for keiki in Waianae. This will be our 10th annual community service partnership with the Boys & Girls Club. We provide music, games, gifts, toys and plenty of food for the youth to enjoy for the holidays. Members diligently continue to make this happen. Finally, we would like to honor our nā ʻōpio, Aaron, Kamuela, Krystal, Makani and Makenaokelani for their support and respect to their parents and to the members of the KKHCC. IMUA E NĀ KEIKI!!!

The Ko`olauloa Hawaiian Civic Club was founded on June 14, 1924 by William Isaac Kanakanui, a highly respected leader of the Hau`ula community, and was chartered on April 16, 1966. We are a charitable non-profit organization and currently the second oldest club with in the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs organization. Our mission is to preserve and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture, its music, language and arts. We protect, respect and steward sacred sites and places in our community while supporting our Native Hawaiian students in pursuing a higher education. Our partnership with HILT and Hui o Hau'ula to malama Maunawila Heiau has been a big on-going project for several years and dependent on other organization and groups in our community with experiences and expertise that helps us to accomplish our mission of protecting the lands that sustain us. We know that protecting Hawaii's precious places such as Maunawila is big work, so much of our appreciation goes out to Rebekah Walker & Tevita Kaili, Associate Professor of Anthropology from BYU-Hawaii and all the college students, who were a tremendous help in clearing the land and completing various projects. We took part in many of events though out the year including Makahiki at the Royal Hawaiian Court Yard, the Waimanalo HCC fundraiser, the Ko'olaupoko Ku I Ke Kamaaina Awards & Benefit Luncheon, the Prince Kuhio Ho`olaule`a and Ho`ike`ike at Kapi`olani Park and entered a decorated vehicle in the Aloha Week Floral Parade. The Aloha Ko`olauloa, North Shore Ocean Fest, Hau`ula Ho`olaule`a, and the Homeless Retreat at Hau`ula Beach Park are some of the events that our club members support to share and support our heritage. We also hold monthly Board and General Membership meeting and attended the quarterly Oahu Council meetings. Mahalo to Kauai Council for hosting this years’ convention.

During 2018, the Ko`olaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club remained an active force for the nine ahupua`a around Kane`ohe Bay. Among its first initiatives was the implementation of their legislative priorities program through outreach to the State Legislature from its opening days. Of seven major priorities the club listed, five found success through legislative actions taken. Among their priorities was funding a cultural resource staff for the He`eia NERRS, elimination of coral-damaging suntan lotions, and support for the Aha Moku and the Haiku Valley Cultural Preserve. The club also voted to host an OHA candidates forum and worked with the Waimanalo, Kailua and Ko`olauloa Hawaiian Civic Clubs to hold the forum in June. Members of the club serve on the Kane`ohe and Kahaluu Neighborhood Boards; four members - Sen.-elect Jarrett Keohokalole, Sen. Gil Riviere, Rep.-elect Scot Matayoshi and Rep.-elect Lisa Kitagawa - won their respective races in the Primary Elections; and three members serve on state or other city boards and commissions. The club engaged in numerous consultations throughout the year with public and private entities, including working with landowners regarding Kawa`ewa`e Heiau and Haiku Valley to establish cultural preserves, and serves as cultural advisor to the Hawai`i Institute of Marine Biology on Moku o Lo`e (Coconut Island). The club honored its 2018 Distinguished Kama`aina, Chancellor Douglas Dykstra of Windward Community College, at its annual Ku i ke Kama`aina Recognition and Scholarship Benefit luncheon held Sept. 3 at Haleiwa Joe's Restaurant. Also recognized were Helen C. Kane honorees Aiden and Brian Lopes, and scholarship recipients Celeste Akana, Kristal Brown and Ian Jenss. In February, member Mahealani Cypher was recognized by Ke One o Kakuhihewa (O`ahu Council) at its fundraiser luncheon as the Ko`olaupoko moku honoree. The club was saddened by the passing of two members this year: Haleaka Martin and John Jenss.

celebration/fundraiser will honor our board members who have kept the club grounded to reach this milestone, both past and present. General/Cultural Meetings are held the first Thursday of the month at the Ohana Kakoo Building, 85-888 Farrington Hwy., Waianae starting at 6:00 P.M. (Meetings are potluck). Club members' involvement in Stopping Domestic Violence, Ohana Kakoo, Kuilioloa Heiau conservation, Shoebox Ministry and furnishing school supplies for Leihoku and Maili Elementary exhibit a diversity of interests within our community. Continued collaboration within the Waianae Moku proves integral in engaging as a team to meet the needs of our community. Examples are supporting attendance at public forums and A Vote to Rise Initiative. Annual Lei Making to honor our Alii remains a tradition that May Holokai, also a member of Ahahui Kaahumanu, leads by organizing flower gathering, transportation and sewing. Several members are also involved with Waianae Economic Development and Made on the Waianae Coast, two organizations that foster sustainable living, vital for our community growth, health and wellness. Recruitment of 6 new members this year, shows the dedication and commitment of the Dung Ohana. Three members joined as part of the membership drive held at Sunset on the Beach in August 2018 while the other three joined while participating at Kupuna Kanikapila held at the Waianae Burger King. Thank you to former Club Presidents Richard Landford and Kawika Nahoopii for all of their contributions that helped make our club what it is today. We welcome Shirline Ho, newly elected Club President, for the 2018-2020 term. A prosperous future for all Hawaiian Civic Club en devours!

The study looks to cross validate traditional fishery knowledge with scientific underwater observations over an extended period of time. A known ko'a, Big Rock, selected as study site and surveyed monthly based on the lunar phase and weather conditions. Traditional fishermen predict what species they anticipate seeing at the koa based on season. Fishermen take visual survey of the ko'a identifying species and estimating the poundage. Underwater video cameras deployed to randomly selected grid sites for an hour. The footage analyzed for species diversity and abundance. Thirteen months of surveys were conducted between the years 2014 to 2015. In 2018, additional surveys are being conducted to evaluate changes in fish assemblages and abundance between years. 2) Mark Mitsuyasu, Maunalua HCC vice president, and Chris Kramer, president of the Maunalua Bay Fishpond Heritage Center, hosted 16 high school students participating in the 2018 Marine Science Course on Fishery and Resource Management hosted by the Western Pacific Fishery Management Council and Moanalua High School to day of learning about non-fishing impacts and its effect on Maunalua Bay. . 3) Club established contact with Hawaii Green Infrastructure Authority, GEMS Financing Program Gwen Yamamoto-Lau and Valerie Kubota for State financing of solar water heaters for club members.

The only one of its kind in the United States, and restored from the 9th century by John Kaimikawa, the Aha Moku was brought to life by kupuna and expert lawaia (ocean practitioners) and mahiai (agriculture practitioners) through a series of state-wide puwalu from 2004 through 2006. In 2007, through the efforts of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, the Aha Moku Bill authored by 200+ Native Hawaiians from all eight main Hawaiian Islands (many of whom were Hawaiian Civic Club members) was taken to the Legislature. Governor Lingle signed the Aha Moku Bill into law when it became Act 212. In 2012, again with the strong support of the civic clubs, Governor Abercrombie passed Act 288, SLH 2012. Act 288 is the Aha Moku in its current format. The mandate of the Aha Moku is to bring forth the voices of the people of site-specific ahupua'a in regards to natural and cultural resources of that place; be guided by the

generational wisdom of kupuna and expert resource practitioners who have traditional knowledge of how to sustain their ecosystem and environment; and to advise the Chairperson of the Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), its divisions and the Legislature on natural and cultural resources in Hawaii. The Aha Moku is only one of the many successful results of the perseverance and strength of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. PKHCC members have worked in 2018 to educate, and collaborate with others such as the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Hawaii County Councils, Papa Ola Lokahi and other Native Hawaiian organizations. Aha Moku is a child of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. Mahalo Ke Akua!

K UKUI L AMA K Ū From Legacy to History The Kukui Lama Kū Recognition Award was founded and initiated in 1989 by then Association of Hawaiian Civic Club President Jalna Keala. She strongly believed in giving recognition to our Nā Kupuna who are civic club members that have led the way for us and who have not received any kind of an Association award. The following Association President Bruss Keppeler, loved the idea and imbedded the Kukui Lama Kū Recognition Award into the convention agenda. The Kukui Lama Kū Recognition Award is a heartfelt recognition of a few people by their ʻAhahui Pelekikena. It is not a competitive award. The kūpuna are the ones who enlighten us with the FLAME or KUKUI over the years in their quiet humble, supportive way without being in the limelight over a period of time . . . not this year, or last year, but sustained services they have provided throughout their unique lifetime. It was Aunty Betty Jenkins a member of Aliʻi Pauahi Hawaiian Civic Club, who came up with the idea and the name for this prestigious award. “It is a good one” she said “very descriptive with the kaona”. When you think about it, we can think of many kūpuna, we all know of them, we know of someone and their lives have expressed the finest and the very best of our Hawaiian values. ‘Ahahui o Nā Lei Makalapua Henry Kaonoipuanani Kim Lau Kanaka No Hawai‘i Hawaiian Civic Club of Arizona The Mainland Council of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs is proud to recognize Henry Kaonoipuanani Kim as their 2018 Kukui Lama Ku recipient. Henry was born on August 7,1945 in Waiʻanae HI and is a 1963 graduate of Waiʻanae High School. He is the grandson of Abigail Pililaʻau, an accomplished Hawaiian song writer. He married Elizabeth (Dusty) Schnider and had two daughters, Lisa Keolalaninaninohea and Mia Kaulanakaleonalani. After a career playing Hawaiian music and running a catering business Henry and Dusty moved to Chandler, Arizona in 2005 to be near his daughters. In 2007 Henry and Dusty joined Lau Kanaka No Hawaii (LKNH) Hawaiian Civic Club. Due to his extensive catering experience Henry eagerly accepted the kuleana of Lu`au Chairperson. That success quickly led to other leadership opportunities; elected (LKNH) Treasurer in 2008; elected club Pelekikena in 2009 serving until 2012. A talented musician, band leader and field-tested organizer Henry established the Sandwich Isle Ukulele Band in 2010. Under his leadership, the Sandwich Isle Ukulele Band provided Hawaiian entertainment for the Arizona Aloha Festival, Lau Kanaka No Hawaii (LKNH) Hawaiian Civic Club’s Annual fundraiser Lūʻau and numerous cultural performances within the community to include the Basha’s Public Library, Adult Community Centers, the Music Instrument Museum, and special performances for annual celebrations and club meetings. From 2010 to May 2018, Henry taught ukulele to novice and experienced players; offering kanikapila sessions at a local restaurant once a week for 2 hours between the months of September-May each year. These kanikapila sessions drew a following of more than 72 regulars; locals and “snowbirds” to Arizona. In August 2013, Lau Kanaka No Hawaii Hawaiian Civic Club of Arizona hosted the Mainland Council of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs meeting. Henry Kaonoipuanani Kim served a project manager. He masterfully coordinated a visit to the Saguaro Medium Correctional Center in Eloy, Arizona where over 1800 native Hawaiian inmates remain incarcerated. The purpose of the visit was to provide mālama and aloha to the inmates. With Warden Thomas’ help, an emotional time of listening, learning, and understanding of their experiences, challenges and needs was accomplished. The kanikapila spirit prevailed as ukulele, mele and hula permeated the gathering. A repeat visit in May 2017 resulted in an equally emotional experience. Inmate family & guests were invited to join the delegation. The Council, Club and `ohana delivered a message of hope for incarcerated Hawaiians in Eloy, AZ. Henry Kaonoipuanani Kim is the Mainland Council’s Kukui Lama Ku nominee because of his unselfish and unwavering service to his family, his community and to Lau Kanaka No Hawaii (LKNH) Hawaiian Civic Club – leaving a legacy of aloha. Henry Kaonoipuanani Kim passed away on May 28, 2018.

‘Ahahui o Moku o Keawe Cynthia Soonhee Keana’aina Nazara Kona Hawaiian Civic Club Cynthia Soonhee Keana’aina Nazara, a lifelong member of the Kona Hawaiian Civic Club (KHCC) and its current pelekikena, is Moku O Keawe’s 2018 Kukui Lama Kū recipient. Born on Oʻahu and raised on Hawaiʻi Island in Kailua-Kona, Cynthia is a graduate of McKinley High School. She attended Leeward College and graduated from Rhema Bible College in Oklahoma. Her genealogy stems from a long line of master weavers (tutu Malaea Haau, Emily Keana’aina, Amy Freitas (former Pelekikena of KHCC), Adele Bates and her mother, Malaea Keana’aina Tolentino. Cynthia is a lineal descendent of the ahupua’a of Kaloko, Honokohau, O’oma, and Kalaoa. Cynthia is very active in her community and is involved with numerous organizations such as the West Hawaii Fisheries, Kona Historical Society, Ka’upulehu Marine and Land Association, the Hawai’i Island Burial Council, the Cultural Sites Association advisory board at Hokulia, Ka Ulu Lauhala, and Chair of the County of Hawaii’s Public Open Space Natural Commission. Her involvement with KHCC came at a time when her aunt, Amy Freitas, was the Pelekikena and her mom and other aunties were members. Cynthia was always volunteering until she had to join the club. This was the start of a journey she has not regretted. Being a member of KHCC has opened opportunities for her to learn so much as far as being involved with her community and so many other educational lessons. Being a club member has opened up numerous doors to a better understanding of how our government works and how we as citizens have the opportunity to be involved in effecting changes for the individuals as a whole. Particularly during the period she served as the Historian for the club it gave her a brighter outlook on the history of the AOHCC. There was a time when her community was being inundated with malihini. Instead of being nuha about the situation, Cynthia wrote a grant to help educate these individuals on how things are done on Hawai’i Island. It was very successful. “ I will teach you all, for example, of why you should take your shoes off when you come into my house.” This opened the doors to employment in the community. Cynthia was employed as a Cultural Manager at the Four Seasons Hualalai. During those years the learning was tremendous as far as working with our kupuna and the knowledge that they shared, especially the many values which have been lost in this generation. She is presently a Cultural Monitor for the Queen Kaahumanu Highway construction project, keeping our cultural sites safe by working with other native Hawaiian organizations and the Kona community. She is also the Makai Watch Coordinator for Kalaemano to Kikaua Pt., to bring about the project “Try Wait.” Her belief is in education for generations to come, not only in school but learning how to hear their voices. This generation will become our future leaders and if we don’t educate them in the simple things, how can we teach them the right way to lead? There are more valuable lessons then in our books. We as a people use our words loosely and will not be able to pass these values on if we don’t live it. There is so much more lessons to learn in becoming a healthier and better people that will make a difference in this world. Her ultimate goal is bring an awareness to our younger generation by being involved in the civic club movement. ‘Ahahui o Nā Hono A‘o Pi‘ilani Edwin and Puanani Linsey Central Maui Hawaiian Civic Club Edwin Lindsey Jr. and Puanani Lindsey joined Lahaina Hawaiian Civic Club in 2002 at the request of long time family friends Peter and Luana McKinney. Ed’s kuleana was to keep members up to speed with current events and legislation. Ed was a retired teacher who became involved in all things Hawaiian. Including sovereignty, access rights, water, development, voyaging, education, government, and more. Ed’s parents, Kupuna Aunty Pua and Uncle Ned, were treasures of West Maui Community. They were often consulted to help maintain the integrity of Lahaina. The Kuleana was passed down, Ed accepted and perpetuated his family’s legacy. Puanani retired from the Police Department as a Radio/Telephone Operator (Emergency calls) in 1999, and was determined to spend as much time with Ed during their retirement years. Puanani supported Ed quietly throughout every

facet of life. She provided the strength and partnership that only love can develop. She always felt that there only needs to be one visionary and talker, and Ed was good at it. Ed was called to Akua and passed peacefully in the early morning of June 2009 at his childhood home in Lahaina, Puanani at his side. During Ed’s last months, he worked tirelessly inspiring many people to carry on the work. Puanani, assumed the kuleana and works quietly and simply preserving cultural sites and native plants throughout West Maui. Cultivating seeds of Aloha and Malama along the way to all who are fortunate to cross paths with her. To quote Ed Lindsey, “People who help the land and the culture, who give unselfishly for the sake of the land, they are the heroes, the real warriors.” Ed & Puanani, you are the Hero’s! Mahalo for all of your dedication, mana, and inspiration.

A champion of the Hawaiian culture, she loved ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi and it gave her great joy to share her knowledge with the community. She was an ʻāina warrior, and helped many people learn how to truly live and practice aloha ʻāina. As a founding member of ‘Ahahui Kīwila Hawaiʻi O Moʻikeha she helped to shape the club from its organization and charter in 2013. As a beneficiary of Hawaiian Homes it was especially important to her to perpetuate Prince Kūhiō’s legacy. She left us way too soon, her passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts. We are grateful for the opportunity to honor her this way, mahalo nui loa. He Wahi Mahalo! ʻAuhea ʻoukou e nā lālā o nā ʻAhahui Siwila Hawaiʻi! Mai ka ʻāina huʻihuʻi ʻo Amelia a hiki i ka pae moku ʻo Hawaiʻi, ka ʻāina o ko kākou mau kūpuna kilakila. Aloha pumehana kākou! On behalf of the Kukui Lama Kū Committee, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your dedication and service to the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. Our work here is very important as we continue to advance our lāhui forward. Congratulations also to this year’s Kukui Lama Kū honorees. Your service and dedication to our civic club movement continues to serve as an inspiration to many. Mahalo for all that you do to perpetuate the legacy of Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniʻanaʻole. I would like to acknowledge the many individuals that have helped me in my first full year as committee chair. First, I would like to mahalo my predecessor, ʻAnakala ʻIke Kaʻaihue for his many years of service to the Association and to this committee. ʻAnakala ʻIke asked me to join the committee in 2016 as the co-chair to serve under his tutelage and guidance. He taught me the duties and responsibilities of this prestigious committee as well as the enormous kuleana that comes with it. Mahalo e ʻAnakala ʻIke for serving as my lama kukui in this new journey as chairman of this committee. I would like to personally acknowledge others who were vital to the operation and success of this committee. They are Roth Puahala, Kūhiō Lewis, Shelly Haʻo-Tamoan, Wayne Waiolama Tanaka, Jocelyn Doane, Letani Peltier, Kona Kaʻaihue and Lorna Akima. These individuals have supported this committee throughout the year and I am grateful for their service and dedication. Lastly, a big mahalo to Uncle Clifford and Aunty Teri Loo for their many years of support, dedication and hard work in the gathering of the pōhaku that was presented to each honoree. No laila, mahalo hou iā ʻoukou pākahi a pau no kā ʻoukou kūpaʻa ʻana e hoʻomau ai ka hoʻoilina o ia mau hulu kūpuna nei. Na lākou he mau lama kukui no kākou a pau ma ke ala pono e loaʻa ai ka lei o ka lanakila. E ola mau nā ʻAhahui Siwila Hawaiʻi! E ola mau ka lāhui!

S ONGS Star Spangled Banner

Hawaiʻi Ponoʻī

O! say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming:

Hawaiʻi ponoʻī, Nānā i kou mōʻī Ka lani Aliʻi, ke Aliʻi Makua lani ē, Kamehameha ē, Nā kaua e pale, Me ka ihe

Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming,

Hawaiʻi ponoʻī, Nānā i nā aliʻi Nā pua muli kou, Nā pōkiʻi Makua lani ē, Kamehameha ē, Nā kaua e pale, Me ka ihe

And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;

Hawaiʻi ponoʻī, E ka lāhui e ʻO kāu hana nui, E uʻi ē Makua lani ē, Kamehameha ē, Nā kaua e pale, Me ka ihe

O! say, does that Star-spangled Banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave

He Hawaiʻi Au I Kēia pō, eia au me ʻoe Kēia pō, ua hoʻi mai au He loa ka helena ma ke ala hele E huli i wahi ma kēia au

To You, Sweetheart, Aloha. To you, sweetheart, Aloha. Aloha, from the bottom of my heart. Keep the smile on your lips. Brush the tear from your eye. One more Aloha, then it's time for goodbye.

Maopopo a ua ʻike hoʻi Ka home i loko o ku'u puʻuwai Ua hoʻi mai au, ke ʻike nei au

To you, sweetheart, Aloha. In dreams I'll be with you, dear, tonight. And I'll pray for that day When we two will meet again, Until then, sweetheart, Aloha

ʻAʻole au e ʻauana hou Ke maopopo he Hawaiʻi au
