Kū Hiō! Kū Kānaka! Kū I Ke Aka O Nā kūpuna! November 14, 2019 ‘Auhea ‘oukou e ka ‘ohana o ka Hui Sīwila Hawai`i! ‘Oiai, ua piha ho‘okahi haneri makahiki i ka Hui Sīwila Hawai‘i mua loa, ‘o ia ho‘i ka Hui Sīwila Hawai`i ‘O Honolulu; A, ‘Oiai, ua piha ho‘i i Ka ‘Ahahui Sīwila Hawai‘i he 60 makahiki i kēia ‘Apelila i hala iho nei, he leo aloha kēia maia‘u mai, kā ‘oukou Pelekikena nei. ‘O wau ho‘i kēia ‘o Hailama Farden. Ua ho‘ohiki la‘a loa e ho‘okō i ka‘u hana no ke alaka`i ‘ana i ko kākou ‘Ahahui e kaulana nei. As Pelekikena of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, I welcome all delegates, alternates, members and guests to the 60th convention and anniversary of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. Legacy has truly defined the essence of the Association; whether connecting us to the ‘Ahahui Pu‘uhonua no nā Hawai`i or to our mother club – the Hawaiian Civic Club of Honolulu. Perhaps this same legacy is defined well by remembering the 83 delegates who first assembled at the Princess Ka‘iulani Hotel on April 18th, 1959 – One of whom was my paternal grandmother, Harriet Kahelemō‘ala‘ala (Sylva) Farden (delegate of Wai‘anae Hawaiian Civic Club). Personally, what motivates me is the kuleana that we ‘auamo (carry). I believe the reputation of the Association is held in a positive light, mainly because of the way that our Association synergistically and respectfully strives to address issues brought before us. The 2019 convention theme, “Kū hiō! Kū Kānaka! Kū I Ke Aka O Nā Kūpuna” is a powerful charge, causing us to “Stand with foresight! Stand as Kānaka! Stand in the presence (or reflection) of our kūpuna! There are times when some of us get “caught up” in the process and work (seeming to enjoy being right or triumphant over someone else) and forget the importance of empathy and pilina, that will direct us to mālama each other. Work does not make us who we are, but it is the pilina-building (relationship-building) and care for one another that does. If we are to stand in the reflection of our kūpuna, it is imperative that we approach challenges, disagreements and conflicts with empathetic aloha; placing others’ needs before our own. E nā Hawai‘i mai Wakinekona, D.C. a i Hanalei, Kaua‘i; kipa aloha to Maui Nui A Kama and mahalo to the Maui Council of Hawaiian Civic Clubs for the hospitality and hard work in preparation for this year’s convention. As you may know, Lahaina is the ancestral home of a few lines of my genealogy, and as a fourth generation member of the Lahaina Hawaiian Civic Club (formerly known as the West Maui Hawaiian Civic Club), I welcome you to my ho‘oilina! Let us ‘auamo pono our kuleana at this convention. Take care of the work but, take care of each other and always stand in the reflection of our kūpuna! Me Ke Aloha! Hailama V.K.K. Farden, Pekekikena

The first convention was held in 1959 and every year since then, the convention serves as a hub of valuable resources for various organizations and government agencies and a center of discussion and collaboration on community issues important to Native Hawaiians. This year’s convention theme— d in the reflection of our ancestors )—echoes the dedication and with pride and hope and listening to past generations to build a better tomorrow for future generations will help everyone to move forward together.

OFFICE OF THE MAYOR County of Maui 200 South High Street Wailuku, Maui, Hawaii 96793

A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR MICHAEL P. VICTORINO On behalf of the people of Maui County, I welcome delegates, alternates and guests to the annual convention of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. Thank you for convening your important gathering on Maui this year, and I hope you’ll have time to enjoy our spectacular scenery, island hospitality and visit important sites like Honokowai Valley, historic Lahaina town and `aina of Princess Pauahi. Congratulations on celebrating the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Hawaiian Civic Club of Honolulu in December 1918. You have a rich history, spanning back to your founders, U.S. Representative and Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana`ole and other prominent kanaka leaders of that time. These are the kanaka who’ve made it possible for our protectors and others to have a voice in our communities today. During your convention, you’ll explore the theme of “Ku Hio! Ku Kanaka! Ku I Ke Aka O Na Kupuna!” (Stand with foresight! Stand as kanaka! Stand in the likeness of our kupuna!) Your theme will no doubt advance your work on resolutions considered by the association’s committee and plenary meetings. I wish you all the very best for a successful convention. Lastly, I would like to offer my deep appreciation for all the hard work of the convention organizers, planners and volunteers who’ve made this great event possible.

With Aloha,

Michael P. Victorino Mayor, County of Maui

Welina mai kākou, Welcome to the 60th Annual Associa5on of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Conven5on – Kū Hiō! Kū Kanaka! Kū I Ke Aka o Nā Kūpuna: Stand with Foresight! Be as Kanaka! Stand in the Reflec5on of Our Ancestors. Kamehameha Schools is deeply honored to aPend and par5cipate in this year’s conven5on, which brings together key community leaders through more than 60 clubs throughout the pae ‘āina. This is an important 5me in our history where, in recent months, we have all seen a shiT in our community’s interest and par5cipa5on in civic engagement. We have witnessed powerful demonstra5ons of courage from all segments of our popula5on. It is oTen during these moments of 5me that we learn about ourselves, sharpen our focus on what truly maPers, and decide if we will stand for what we believe in or choose to wait and watch what happens around us. It is our sincere hope that our haumāna of all ages will stand up, stand strong, and become engaged in their communi5es, con5nuously working to improve their lives and that of their neighbors and taking an ac5ve role in all aspects of advocacy and representa5on. One day, we may even see our ‘ōpio start their own civic clubs, and collec5vely, we will rejoice and support their efforts. As our beloved founder, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, challenged her people to stand up and lead, so too do we encourage all of Hawai‘i’s youth to educate themselves on the issues, learn to lead with their hearts, and to be servant leaders with the same brilliance and compassion as our Princess. We join you and the hundreds of par5cipants during this year’s conven5on to mahalo the efforts of those who made this week possible and who keep the pulse of the civic clubs alive. With every new rela5onship forged and old friendships reignited, we are excited to bear witness to the successes and opportuni5es this 5me together will bring. E hui pū kākou, i mua!

Eo e na hono a Pi'ilani, aloha mai kaua! Moku o Keawe extends our appreciation and congratulations to the Maui Council for hosting the 60th annual convention. This year started off with an investiture for the new officers held at Keʻeku and Hapaialiʻi heiau in Keauhou. Moku o Keawe had a busy year starting off with Legislation tracking. We supported the Prince Kūhiō Festivities on Oʻahu and Hawaiʻi Islands, and participated with planning and protocol for the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the passing of King Kamehameha ʻekahi. Moku o Keawe took pride in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the restoration of Hale o Keawe, an occasion that was initialized and fully participated by the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs in 1969 as shown on their convention agenda. Members from different clubs around Moku o Keawe participated in the 50th anniversary of the Hawaiian Civic Club of Kaʻu, who also along with Laupāhoehoe Hawaiian Club was contracted to provide the food for the community meetings hosted by the trustees of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs. This year’s Moku o Keawe retreat was held at the Mauna Kea State Park. It included a visit to the paepae kūpuna and participated in the morning protocols and ceremony. We worked on our logistics for next year’s convention hosted by our council as well as support for resolution drafting and great fellowship conversations that included topics of membership development, technology in the Civic Clubs, and ʻono food.

The club put up a booth at the annual Cherry Blossom Festival in February to get information out to the community about the clubs, its purpose and activities. The club awarded education scholarship funds to Punana Leo O Waimea to assist families unable to afford tuition. The club awarded another scholarship to fund students graduating from Kanu O Ka Aina to assist with college expenses. The award of the scholarships was discretionary to both Punana Leo o Waimea and Kanu O Ka Aina New Century Charter School. The club has been working to revise its scholarship application and to create a policy and guidelines for the Scholarship committee. The drafting has been involved and takes some time but will be ready for the final vote shortly. In July, the club did the catering for the Hale O Na Ali`i annual convention which was held in Waimea. It was a successful fundraising effort and a very special opportunity to provide good food for long-time friends. During the preparation for and the event of the Hale O Na Ali`i convention, our kupuna member, Puggie Yim, took sick and passed after a three-week battle with pneumonia. Her stalwart presence was always a loving support to all. She is deeply missed. The club, as a partner of the Puu Kohola Heiau at Kawaihae, prepared and donated food for participants at the annual cultural festival this August. The members were key in the efforts to build up the heiau as a cultural center and also, eventually, to have it become a national park. The club held a huge estate liquidation sale of vintage items over the Labor Day week. Another sale will be held this fall. If anyone is interested in antiques, let us know!! The club is slated to hold its very first annual golf tournament in November as the final fundraiser/membership builder for 2019! We’re looking to work hard to provide golfers with a very Waimea Hawaiian Civic Club experience!! We look forward to doing our part as the Moku O Keawe hosts the 2020 convention on our AINA!! Our aloha goes out to all clubs and members of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. Until 2020….!! Me ke aloha mehana no! `O wau iho nō,

Welina e nā hoa aloha ʻāina! 2019 is an exciting transitional year for Moku o Manokalanipō because our membership is ecstatic about our new leadership and working on new activities for 2020. In July 2019, our clubs met for our quarterly meeting in the moku of Haleleʻa at the Waioli Huiia Church Hall.  We were greeted by the beautiful ua of Hanalei and upon our departure we witnessed the wailele that flow into the many streams of this moku.  Haleleʻa continues to be resilient and it was great for those of us that live in the other moku to return to Haleleʻa and be hosted by ʻAhahui Kīwila Hawaiʻi o Moʻikeha and Hanalei Hawaiian Civic Club. In August 2019, our Pelekikena and Alakaʻi also attended and participated in the AHCC retreat that was held on Moku o Keawe at the Kilauea Military Camp and enjoyed meeting with the other AHCC leadership and getting to know everyone better. In September 2019, Moku o Manokalanipō met at the birthplace of Prince Kūhiō in Kōloa and we were hosted by the Royal Order of Kamehameha- Kaumualiʻi Chapter and Queen Deborah Kapule Hawaiian Civic Club.  Mahalo nui to Sabra Kauka for assisting with the installation of our new leadership that ended with all of us collectively chanting Kū Haʻaheo together. Moku o Manokalanipō has also launched a new website-  http://manokalanipo.org and we continue to build it's resources and providing support to each of our Kauaʻi clubs to have an online presence. In 2020, we will begin planning for the next convention that will be held on Kauaʻi in a few years. me ka haʻahaʻa, Malia Nobrega-Olivera

M OKU O M ANOKALANIPŌ After a year of rebuilding after the flood of 2018, we are back to meeting monthly. We didn’t apply for a grant in 2018 so our Makahiki event was not held this year. We’ll be back in 2020 at the Vidinha Stadium Soccer Field on Saturday, February 8. In March we presented 3 performances on the Life and Legacy of Prince Kūhiō through ʻōlelo, mele and hula at the Kauaʻi Museum, the Princeville Library, as part of their monthly speaker program, and The Cliffs at Princeville. We’ve been invited back next year to the same venues. Using the same format we will be working towards presenting other programs on notable Kānaka throughout the year. On May 14 we sponsored May Day by the Bay. In spite of the landslide at the beginning of May that blocked one lane of traffic going in to Hanalei we had great attendance. Our next May Day will be on May 9, 2020. The theme of May Day by the Bay is “Keeping the Culture Alive” as we honor our culture, and celebrate those that are committed to its perpetuation. We have been awarded 2 grants from Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority for our community events in 2020, Ka Moku O Manokalanipō Pāʻani Makahiki and May Day by the Bay. We welcome participation from our sister clubs. In November we’ve been invited to the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa in Poʻipū to to teach pāʻani Makahiki to their guests and employees as part of their Na Lima Hana festival. We look forward to this opportunity to share the reason for the season.

We celebrated together with our community by hosting an Aloha ʻĀina Concert at our beautiful Historic Waimea Theatre featuring Kauaʻi's own Kainani Kahaunaele and Friends.  Our celebration also included ʻono pupu that were prepared by our members and our ʻai pono menu included- kālua pig sliders, kalo poke, hōʻiʻo salad, and ʻuala.  We are blessed to have members that make imu on a regular basis for our kālua pig and our kalo paʻa was sourced from Waipā, Kauaʻi. Mahalo nui to the community engagement division of Hawaiʻinuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa for co-sponsoring our event and by having a mele workshop with two very talented haku mele, Kainani Kahaunaele and Ānuenue Punua.  They both shared mele that were recently featured in an online compilation called Kūhaʻo Maunakea.  Many of our club and community members loved attending our Aloha ʻĀina Concert and workshop because they walked away with more ʻike about all of the mele that were shared by the haku mele herself. All of our proceeds from the concert will go towards scholarships to support our ʻōpio here on Kauaʻi to continue their educational endeavors.

The Mainland Council sends our congratulations, best wishes and aloha to na Hono Aʻo Pi`ilani for hosting the 2019 AHCC convention in Kaʻanapali, Maui! The Mainland Council honors and celebrates our leadership, membership and ʻohana for allowing us time and resources to do the work of the Council. We mahalo our community partners and native sources. In February 2019, the MCAHCC was fortunate to receive manaʻo from our most profound kupuna source Aunty Toni Lee, past AHCC Pelekikena (2005-2006), sharing stories of triumph, challenges, lessons learned and the benefits of family and beloved relationships. Keola Chan, the prominent face of Aha Kane tested our self-identity, encouraged cultural growth and presented an assertive schedule of continental program expansion. John Aeto of The Kalaimoku Group brought relevance to the power of being counted through Census 2020 and to a community of Census champions who can and will do that work; and Christine Chen of APIAVote surveyed voter registration and the application of that kuleana. During our August Council meeting, Kūhiō Lewis of CNHA inscribed the value and linkages between cultural development and political power. These points of intervention continue a path of building and securing a learned pipeline of leaders and supporters to fulfill Prince Kuhio’s vision. The Mainland Council welcomes to that pipeline, the newly chartered Na ʻOʻiwi O Hawaiʻi Northern Nevada Hawaiian Civic Club under the leadership of Pelekikena Mohalapua Deguilmo-Banner. Welina! Mahalo nui to our Board, Club Pelekikena, Alakaʻi and respective members. Onipaʻa 2020! Me Ke Aloha, Darlene Kehaulani Butts, Pelekikena, Nā Lei Makalapua

AOKHCC sends its warmest aloha to the Association on its 60th annual convention, and mahalo to the Maui council for their hospitality. 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 programming projects through standing committees like scholarship, website, health education, and community outreach. In March, ʻĀinahau once again hosted a lunch for Kapaʻa 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. Another busy Summer; in July we participated in another successful fundraising weekend celebrating with HICCSC at their 41st annual Hoʻolaulea at Alondra Park in Lawndale. This year at our 37th annual Scholarship Ahaʻaina in August, we honored Maui through oli, mele, and hula (all performed by our members) that celebrates the beauty of this year's host island. In September, we were pleased to have completed our 3rd annual `Ohana Bingo Night, which was not only a successful and fun event, but more importantly was planned by a committee comprised primarily of members who have been with the club for less than 5 years (two 1st year members, one of which was the co-chair). AOKHCC will continue to partner with local/national community organizations for joint events covering health and education with Hawaiian cultural focus. Papa Ola Lokahi sponsored workshop in October, visit to Lunalilio Home on our way back home after convention, and visits to Senior Living Care Homes in December, sharing Christmas hula and mele, Hawaiian Style. It is our honor to be here at convention and look forward to actively participating in serving and honoring our people in this forum.

N Ā L EI M AKALAPUA Hui Hawai`i O Tenesi Hawaiian Civic Club continues its mission to perpetuate the Hawaiian Culture and Aloha Spirit. Our primary functions is to support the cultural needs of our military members and families of Fort Campbell Army Post, many of which have been transferred from Hawai`i or are Native Hawaiians serving in the military. We continue to celebrate Lei Day at the TN State Veterans Home with a maile and orchid lei draping ceremony to the Doughboy Statue in front of the facility and provide entertainment to the veteran residents and staff. Asian-American Pacific Islander Month and Military Appreciation Month in May was highlighted with a hula performance at Fort Campbell Army Post. Our hui continues to share the culture at the Clarksville Downtown Marketplace each Saturday during the summer with our hula performances, ono kalua pork sales and TN grown Hawaiian plant sales. The summer activities ended with our annual lu’au. Monthly participation at Manna Café continues all year long where we assist in feeding the homeless. Our hula dancers are always performing around the community as invited. In 2019 we had a visit and workshop from Papa Ola Lokahi where they taught our members how to make hula adornments from fresh flowers and plants and soothed the tired muscles with lomi lomi massages. Since that visit, our hula dancers have participated in two additional workshops conducted by our club’s plant grower where they learned how to plant and malama Ti plants and fern plants to be used as adornments in the future.

This year we’ve enjoyed pop-up stores, and manapua making. In response to our communityʻs request for Hawaiian language classes, we’ve partnered with the City Library and were the first language classes offered through them, EVER. With the success of the class, there is now a Navajo language class, and a Tongan and Samoan class in the works. We’ve held a movie screening for Mauna Kea: Temple Under Siege, held a Hawaiian Language bingo night, had an Oli Moʻokuauhau workshop participated in the Pacific Health 5k by offering opening oli, and manning a water station and have been heavily engaged in increasing education and awareness for the issues regarding Mauna Kea. We are an active and integral part of the Utah Pacific Islander Health Network and through this partnership, weʻre able to positively impact Pacific Islanders facing health challenges. We renew ourselves by gathering with other civically engaged Hawaiians at our council meetings, and it is always a good time. We are currently working on creating a program for Kupuna and partnering once again with the City Library. Our

N Ā L EI M AKALAPUA In June, 14 dancers from Hula Halau O Kiakahi traveled to Hawaii Island to holo holo with Kuana Torres. One highlight of their trip was to perform hula in Waipio Valley to the his mele Waipiʻo Paeaea, and to work and sweat in the loʻi. Another, to learn Aloha No Kona on the grounds of Hulihee Palace in Kona. In July, Carol and Alex Johnson flew to Kansas City to help our hui with our ukulele performance for the upcomg Ethnic festival. Carol also shared her talents with the surrouncing area ukulele clubs. Those ukulele players were treated to both Hawaiian style and other popular music along with strumming techniques. A big mahalo to Carol to visit our hui and to also fellowship ukulele clubs in the area. Later in July, some members of our hui gathered for three Protect Mauna Kea events. The first two were in Kansas City parks and the final one at my home for the simultaneous broadcast. Mikiani Young came through our area for day 263 of her daily FB broadcasts across the continent. Mid-August was the annual Kansas City Ethnic festival. Our shave ice sales fund hui activities. About 20 players from local ukulele clubs participated as an ukulele flash mob for our show. Six of the uke flash mob players were from our new uke group which began classes last Spring. Most exciting is several of the incoming players were born in Missouri and will now have an opportunity to connect to their Hawaiian roots. Mahalo nui to our teacher Gail Shirley who was a part of the Washington D.C. ukulele group for many years before her recent move to Missouri. She couldnʻt find a Hawaiian uke group here to join, so gratefully she is willing to teach us. so maybe we can get good enough to be called The Hawaiian Uke Group O Kansas City.

HCC Email: Kakuhihewa.president@gmail.com HCC Website: www.kakuhihewa.org Our first council meeting took place on January 5th, 2019 during the Annual Makahiki Celebration at the historic Royal Hawaiian Hotel, near Helumoa. While the Council elected new officers at their October 2018 meeting, they were installed here, near the Waiīkī residence of our founder, Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole. The new officers for 2019-2020 are listed above. The Council participated in Aliʻi Sunday for William Charles Lunalilo (Jan 27), Queen Kaʻahumanu (March 17), Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole (March 24), and Kauikeaouli (Aug 4). We also participated in Queen Emmaʻs birthday at Maunaʻala on January 2nd., the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement Legislative Forum (January 8), the Native Hawaiian Hospitality Associationʻs Ka Huina – Tradition X Innovation (March 7) Prince Kūhiō events at Ka Makana Aliʻi (March 15), the Prince Kūhiō parade (March 30), and the Kamehameha lei draping (June 7). The Council and its clubs also participated in the Aloha Festivals Floral parade held on September 28th. At my first meeting in January, the Council established a Housing Committee which has been meeting regularly to come up with information on housing options for our native Hawaiian communities. The committee will be holding informational forums in the coming months to discuss important solutions to create a better living environment on Oʻahu for Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians. The Council was active at the Hawaiʻi Legislature in 2019. We participated in the Hawaiʻi Legislatureʻs Hawaiian Affairs Caucus, Hawaiian Caucus Day (Feb. 8) and Oʻahu clubs were quite active at the State Capitol. Kupuna ʻUlulani Bierne of Koʻolauloa HCC, was honored by the Hawaiian Affairs Caucus, as were Manu Boyd (Pelekikena for the Honolulu club). Waiʻanae and Mākaha Hawaiian Civic Clubs were also recognized separately by the Hawaiʻi State Senate work for their Waiʻanae Water Resolution which was recently passed by the Association in 2018. On March 27, Prince Kūhiō HCC and other Oʻahu clubs participated in Kūlike Kākou with other partner organizations. This day of advocacy brought needed attention to the receipt of OHAʻs pro rata share of the Public Lands Trust. While HB402 bill did not pass, it went farther in the legislature than any previous year. We will ensure this issue is resolved next year! The Council began Resolution workshops to teach our members how to research and write substantive resolutions. Three workshops were held, which culminated into a Special Meeting on August 24th. Four substantive resolutions and 4 memorial resolutions were passed at this meeting and submitted to the Association of Hawaiian Civic Club for deliberation at the upcoming annual convention. Our largest event, the Hōʻikeʻike was held at Bishop Museum for the first time in many years. The day-long event featured music, food, and highlighted the history of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, and our Oʻahu clubs. Special recognition was given to the Hawaiian Civic Club of Honolulu in their centennial year of the civic club movement. Lastly, the Council has been working throughout the year to provide a venue for the Association to hold itʻs 2021 Annual Convention on Oʻahu. We have proposed October 31-November 7, 2021 as the convention dates. We are awaiting confirmation from the Hawaiʻi Convention Center to hold our convention and have sought discounted room rates at the

The 2020 Census is for our family. Stretching across the United States, we are one family. Your voice matters, and your community matters. Every 10 years, the United States counts everyone living in the country. Our community is depending on your participation, including our keiki and kupuna. Census data informs decisions about critical funding to help our families flourish. That includes funding for things like: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

Housing assistance Public transportation

Health clinics

Water and waste disposal systems for communities

Special education

Beginning in mid-March 2020, every household in the United States will receive a notice to complete the census online, by phone, or by mail. The form asks a handful of basic questions. From May – July 2020, census takers from your community will visit households that have not yet responded, and they can assist you in completing your form. Your personal information is confidential, is protected by law, and can never be used to identify you.

Aloha to our esteemed hosts and Civic Club ʻohana who have journeyed to the shores of Nā Hono Aʻo Piʻilani! Mahalo nui loa, to all involved, for your warmth, as we stand together in the light of Kū Hiō! Kū Kanaka! Kū I Ke Aka O Nā Kūpuna! Holding space in sacred prohibition and protection, Aliʻi Pauahi returns our love to the multitudes, through ancestral reconnections and restoration of sacred spaces. We stand in the reflection of Prince Kūhiō, whose vision of a thriving Pearl Harbor affirms our efforts, and, in Princess Pauahi's reflection, whose lands encircle the waters of Ke Awa Lau ʻo Puʻuloa and feed us, still. Aliʻi Pauahi toils, in the harbor’s rising waters, to save the last remaining fishpond in Kalauao. Joining the people of `Aiea, `Ewa, O`ahu, the Navy, and, most notably, hundreds of Pauahi’s legacy children and families, we mālama the sacred home where Moʻi Wahine Kalanimanuia reigned peacefully for 65 years. We celebrated Makahiki and birthed moʻōlelo, through the planting of pipi in the harbor. In protocol, Kahu Winston Lum and Kuʻuipo Lum, Kahu Bruce Keaulani, our members, the Navy, and the community of the harbor, entered the space of Kaʻahupahau, to honor the ʻaumakua and affirm our remembrance, by gifting names on sites known for a century as, “Dry Dock #1” and “Building 1.” In reverence for Ke Akua and our ancestors, Keaoonāmano, The Realm of the Sharks, and Keaowāmaluhia, The Light in the Time of Peace, were ordained. Mahalo piha to the Lum `Ohana, Kahu Bruce Keaulani and Jeff Pantaleo for their strong leadership and to Verna Takashima, Haunani Apoliona, Kai Markell and Kaʻahiki Solis, for their love. Our gratitude, likewise, to Senator Roz Baker, for spearheading SCR103, mirroring 2018 - AH, our resolution concerning cultural treatments for opioid addiction.

Like all Oahu Council Civic Clubs we began our year at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel honoring Lono at Makahiki and attending the 1st of 4 quarterly meetings of the Council. We participated at the Ho ‘Ike ‘Ike held on the Bishop Museum grounds. Twice a year we proudly clean Mauna’ala. Another community service event included an online survey and focus group meeting regarding the O’ahu Regional Transportation Plan 2045. In June we invited a guest speaker, the pa’u rider Princess of O’ahu. We were in awe as we learned of the tasks, skills and responsibilities required. We continue to evaluate who we are and how we can be better. To do this an online survey was created and sent to our members. The topic was what makes Ewa Pu’uloa great. We look forward to the results.

Founded in the garage of Louis Mahoe’s Kalapawai home in 1958, the Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club is dedicated to the wellbeing of our Hawaiian people, culture, and ʻāina. We strive to: 1- enrich the lives of Hawaiians in our community, 2- advance the appreciation, study, and practice of Hawaiian culture, and 3- mālama the lands, waters, and wahi pana of our ahupua‘a. We have been a curator of Ulupō heiau since 1987; the heiau and its surrounding lands continue to be the focus of our efforts to ensure the return of a permanent, thriving Hawaiian presence to the piko of our Kailua home. Our summary of activities in 2018: We met and worked at Ulupō on the third Sunday of every month. We are a founding member of Hui Maunawili Kawainui and are actively engaged in securing almost a thousand acres of Maunawili lands for conservation and cultural purposes. In January, we participated in the reinterment of iwi kūpuna at Waiʻauia. In February, we helped host Kailua’s World Wetlands Day. In March, we offered hands-on cultural activities to a delegation of HTA associates at Ulupō. In May, we began negotiating with the City & County of Honolulu for the co-curatorship of Pahukini heiau. In June, we held a very successful scholarship fundraiser, Poi & Pāpale, at Hale Kealoha. In July, our BOD passed a resolution expressing 1- unanimous support of the Kiaʻi at Maunakea, and 2- unanimous opposition to the construction there of the TMT. In August we prepared and served hot meals for 25 houseless individuals at Daybreak Church. In September, we shared the story of the Mākālei with members of the Kalāheo HS art club in preparation for their creation of mural based on that moʻolelo.

Club members donated and prepared turkey and ham meals, provided hundreds of Christmas gifts (mahalo for coordinating this, Alex!) and finally helped serve the children and their families at St. Elizabeth Church in ʻAiea. 2019 was a busy year with many new and exciting changes. In February we installed several new officers, and we also steadily increased our membership. In March, we participated in the Oʻahu Council’s hoʻikeʻike at Bishop Museum with our ʻono fish plate fundraiser. The entire event was a huge success - what better way to honor Prince Kūhiō and celebrate 100 years of Hawaiian Civic Club accomplishments than by enjoying each others’ company with good food and amazing entertainment. Our club's founder, Aunty Gladys Rodenhurst, was also in attendance and we were grateful to have the opportunity to have her talk story with those in attendance. Later in the month, our club participated in the 34th Annual Prince Kūhiō Festival Parade; in fact, two of our ʻōpio members helped Oʻahu Council President as banner carriers. In May, club members participated as volunteers in the 41st annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk, which raised a record $510,000 on Oʻahu alone! Also in May, club members honored Kamehameha Nui by donating strands of yellow plumeria leis, along with bags of individual flowers, for the King Kamehameha lei draping ceremony. In June, our club cleaned the Royal Mausoleum, crypt and grounds with members from Waimānalo and Prince Kūhiō Hawaiian Civic Clubs. This year, King Kamehameha Hawaiian Civic Club is proud to have awarded two educational scholarships to Kamehameha Schools Summer Explorations Hoʻomaikaʻikaʻi 2019. In August, our club participated for the fourth year with the “Salvation Children” back to school supply donation jamboree at the downtown Walmart store. We look forward for a much more exciting, productive, and successful year ahead. “I mua Kamehameha!” Finally, much hugs, prayers, love and aloha are humbly and warmly expressed to the family of the late “Kupuna Michael Henry Doane” associate member and father of active member and delegate Jocelyn Leialoha Doane. “God Be with You Till We Meet Again, Ahui Hou.”

We are Nanaikapono Hawaiian Civic Club from the beautiful Valley of Nanakuli. Where Maui lassoed the sun from the summit of Pu’u Heleakala for his mother Hina.

We have our quarterly meetings at Alulike Leeward Office on Nanakuli Avenue. The Alulike office sits at the foot of the valley where we are sheltered by Pu’u Heleakala. We are very grateful to partner with Alulike to allow us the use of their facility in our beautiful community.

Kumu Earl Kawa‘a

Joe Kūhiō Lewis

Kumu Earl Kawa‘a, born & raised in Hālawa Valley, Moloka’i, a mānaleo, one of only 27 known still remaining with us (outside of the Ni‘ihau Community), is a teacher, a mentor, a deep source of knowledge. Kumu Kawa’a walks in two worlds; raised as one of five children, he was not sent to attend Kamehameha Schools like his other siblings, but instead remained on Moloka’i speaking Hawaiian, fishing and farming taro, learning lā‘au lapa‘au, ho‘oponopono and later western educated with a Master’s Degree in Social Work and Counseling. Kumu Kawa‘a was a Domestic Peace Corps and VISTA Volunteer on the Acoma Indian Reservation and served in the Armed Forces during the Vietnam war. He is a counselor, a mediator, a facilitator, a healer. Kumu Kawa‘a levied a heavy cultural revival and appreciation for kalo in his Board and Stone class which have, to date, inspired and touched nearly 1,000 families on O‘ahu and Moloka‘i; reconnecting them to a pōhaku ku‘i ‘ai, papa ku‘i ‘ai and to their family responsibilities. Kumu Kawa‘a is a 2018 Kalani Ali‘i Awardee and was designated a Living Treasure of Hawai‘i the same year. The AHCC was first introduced to Kumu Kawa‘a in 2015 as a workshop presenter. He addressed the Association Board this January at its annual retreat. Kumu Kawa‘a is no-nonsense when it comes to impact. In 2017, he was one of a handful of leaders and organizers along with Duane Kurisu, Glenn Miyazaki, Lauren Nahme and Warren Haruki to bring together a group of rising leaders across all sections of our community to develop a 100year vision for Hawai‘i. This vision was published in the Hawai‘i Business News Magazine (Aug. 2017)

Lewis is the President & CEO of the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement, responsible for the execution of the organizations 6 program areas. He previously served as the  Community Outreach and Engagement Manager at the Office of Hawaiian  Affairs,  responsible  for advancing the organization’s civic engagement initiatives with oversight of a $2.3 million  program budget and 21 staff statewide. Kuhio is a beneficiary of the Hawaiian Homes  Commission Act and past President of the Kapolei Community Development Corporation  (KCDC) where he helped raise over $2 million to support a regional community development  project  –  the Kapolei Heritage Center.  During his tenure, KCDC also brokered one of the largest community  benefit agreements totaling over $30 million.  Kūhiō has also served as  the  President for the King Kamehameha Hawaiian Civic Club.

Plenary Speaker

Duane Kurisu if of humble vintage. Raised in the village of Hakalau, moku o Keawe, Duane grew up in a plantation-style community, imprinting culture and aloha in his heart forever. Kurisu is one of Hawai‘i’s great success stories; and epitome as one of Hawai‘i’s model social entrepreneurs. After graduating from the University of Hawai‘i, Duane was hired by American Security Bank, from which he was later recruited by Ron Petty (a former partner with Jay Scheidler) and was elevated to Petty’s #2 person. After seven years (and at age 29), Duane left to form his own business, Kurisu and Fergus. Although Duane’s story heralds owning 12 businesses; some of which are: ESPN 1420 , Watermark publishing, Hawai‘i Bus. Magazine, Honolulu magazine, the Pagoda restaurant and AIO; and Kurisu is even the part owner of the SF Giants, Duane exhibits and models the humble and generous spirit of ‘ōpū ali‘i. Among Duane’s major contributions to Hawai‘i was the establishment of the young HAPA (Hawai‘i Asia Pacific Association) in which Duane aimed to build the capacity of younger business leaders who were positioned to run some of Hawai‘i’s top businesses. Duane also bolstered this capacity by targeting native Hawaiian leaders to be a part of the work of young HAPA. A major accomplishment forever to be carved in the annuals of empathy and compassion is Duane’s successful work in bringing together the State and City and 53 organizations to vision and establish the Kahauiki Village. Kahauiki Village, when completed will alleviate 40% of O‘ahu island’s homeless and houseless population, thus supporting a significant houseless population that is native Hawaiian.

Livingston “Jack” Wong was named Chief Executive Officer of Kamehameha Schools in September 2014. Prior to being named CEO, Jack served as an attorney for Kamehameha Schools for 17 years, including as KS’ Vice President of Legal Services and General Counsel.   Guided by the vision of its Trustees, and under Jack’s leadership, Kamehameha Schools embarked in 2015 on a bold, exciting voyage that envisions, in one generation, a thriving Lāhui in which all Hawaiian learners achieve post-secondary educational success, enabling good life and career choices. Grounded in Christian and Hawaiian values, learners will be leaders who contribute to their communities both locally and globally. At the heart of this journey are those who share this vision to ensure that all Native Hawaiians have the opportunity to succeed. Strong community partners, like the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, are vital to advocate for Native Hawaiian well-being, education and culture for a thriving Lāhui.

She provides strategic leadership to the KS programs, scholarships, grantmaking, and community partnerships with that special Hawaiian Community.

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 Sharon Ku‘uipo Kana‘e Pauloa Kaha I Ka Panoa Kaleponi Hawaiian Civic Club The Mainland Council nominee for the 2019 Kukui Lama Kū is Sharon Kuʻuipo Kana`e Paulo. Sharon was a founding member and Immediate Past President of her primary club, Kaha i ka Panoa Kaleponi Hawaiian Civic Club. She was also an active member of `Ahahui O Lili`uokalani HCC, and Hui Hawai`i O Tenesi HCC. Born in Honolulu and raised in the town of Nanakuli on the island of O’ahu, Sharon was the 7th of eight children born to Jonathan Kanemehalona Kana’e of Kaupo, Maui and Elaine Hui Morton of Waihe’e, Maui. Sharon and her family moved to California in 1970 making their home in the Azusa-Glendora cities of the San Gabriel Valley. Sharon was employed by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs until her retirement in 2012. Within the DCA, Sharon worked in the Performing Arts Division and helped to coordinate and support more than 149 annual City-sponsored special events within the diverse communities that make up the cultural fabric that is Los Angeles. Sharon served the last seven years of her LA City career on the Department’s Board of Cultural Affairs Commissioners. Community service was her passion. Throughout the years, Sharon served multiple terms as president of the Hawaii’s Daughters Guild, and the Hawaiian Inter-Club Council of Southern California. She co-founded the Hawaiian Community Center Association and the Pacific Islander Community Council; producers of the annual Pacific Island Festival in the City of Los Angeles for twenty years. In 2009 Sharon began her second term, another eight years, as President of the Hawaiian Inter-Club Council of Southern California; producers of the annual Alondra Park Ho’olaule’a in the city of Lawndale, California. Sharon helped co-found Kaha I Ka Panoa Kaleponi Hawaiian Civic Club in the city of Moreno Valley, California. She served as the President of Kaha I Ka Panoa Kaleponi HCC and First Vice President on the Mainland Council of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. Sadly, Sharon passed away last September, never fully recovering from a fall suffered a few months earlier. In her memory and in honor of her years of tireless service to the community, ʻAhahui O Nā Lei Makalapua is honored to recognize Sharon Ku`uipo Kana`e Paulo

K UKUI L AMA K Ū ‘Ahahui o Moku o Keawe Geraldine K. “Aunty Geri” Bell Kuakini Hawaiian Civic Club

From Mauna Kea the world’s highest peak, to the celebrated ‘ōhiʻa lehua groves that flowers the unwavering sweet and vibrant yet bold lehua flowers, to the shores that welcomed people from across the globe for centuries, it is an honoring privilege for the Hawaiʻi Council – Moku o Keawe, to recognize Aunty Geri Bell for this years’ Kukui Lama Kū Award. Born and raised on the island of Maui, Aunty Geri devotes her professional and personal life to the Hawaiian community. Retired as the Superintendent for the Puʻuonua ‘o Hōnaunau and Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Parks in Kona, her leadership style and skill has left a solid foundation for descendants and cultural practitioners to continue to deepen their relationships and genealogical connections at these wahi pana. Her administration and advocacy efforts are evident in testimonies that correlate to outcomes that Native Hawaiians benefit from today. As the previous pelekikena of the Hawaiʻi Council – Moku o Keawe, Aunty Geri has built a lasting legacy within the Hawaiian Civic Clubs movement by empowering and steering the next generation of leaders to assume their roles on a firm foundation that instills the practices and philosophies of Prince Kūhiō. Although in retirement, Aunty Geri continues to be active in her community serving as a commissioner for the County of Hawaii’s Cultural Resource Commission and on the boards of two non-profits. Hula is still an important part of her cultural practice. You can also find her on Tuesday mornings at Tutu’s House in Waimea playing the ukulele and leading the kupuna in mele. From January to April Aunty also wears another hat as a seasoned tax professional. She is never busy enough, though, to spend quality time with her ohana on Maui and Hawaiʻi islands. Aunty Geri epitomizes the lama kū (a strong torch that guides) fueled by the kukui (a tree from the ancient past). Members of the Hawaiʻi Council – Moku o Keawe are proud and happy to celebrate their Kukui Lama Kū Award recipient, Aunty Geri Bell. . ‘Ahahui o Nā Hono A‘o Pi‘ilani Juanita “Queenie” Hokoana Central Maui Hawaiian Civic Club The Maui Council nominee for the 2019 Kukui Lama Kū is Juanita “Queenie” Hokoana. Juanita was born and raised on Maui. She grew up in Kūʻau and graduated from Maui High School. Queenie married LeRoy Hokoana and they have 4 children – Louise, Leni, Braddah, and Lui. Aunty Queenie retired as a Cafeteria manager from Baldwin High School. As a cafeteria manager for many years she is an expert in preparing foods for lūʻau and many people on Maui have enjoyed her ono mea ʻai. She always reminds folks that she has been retired longer than she has worked. In her free time she enjoys playing golf, going to Las Vegas, sewing leis, dancing hula and hanging out with her family. Last year she celebrated her 80th birthday with a large lūʻau. The Maui Council is honored to honor Aunty Queenie Hokoana.

K UKUI L AMA K Ū ‘Ahahui o Ke One o Kakuhihewa Earl Pamai Tenn Kalihi Palama Hawaiian Civic Club Ke One O Kākukhihewa is proud to honor Earl Sherman Maikahikinapāmaikalā Pāmaikaualililehuakenaikawaipunaolaniloa Tenn with the Kukui Lama Kū recognition. He is a cherished kūpuna who has demonstrated unselfish voluntary service both within Hawaiʻi, and nationally in Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and Los Angeles. His love for our culture, for Duke and Nadine Kahanamoku and their scholarship program enabling Hawaiian students to pursue education and careers in the medical field; his sharing of Hawaiian music and dance; and his steadfast commitment to his civic clubs have been constant throughout the years. He has served the community at large by living the teachings of his elders, Mornah Nalamaku Simeona, Maddy Lam, Uncle Henry Moikehaokahiki Pa, Duke and Nadine Kahanomoku, Hoakalei Kamau‘u, Nathan Napoka, and Representative Bertha Kawakami, all of whom shaped his spirit of being Hawaiian. Quoting Representative Kawakami, “He’s the only guy I know who has so much Hawaiiana flowing from his mouth. He lives Hawai‘i, he’s somebody who has all this in him…” From Hawai‘i, to Australia, to New Zealand, to Mexico, to California, Pā Mai has supported and participated in cultural events that build relationships between Hawai‘i and people of those countries. He is a modest individual who goes from “moment to moment” to treat hospitably natives of these countries. It takes only a call to Pā Mai to ask for help and he is there with well researched information and Hawaiian protocol. His airplane luggage is overwhelmed with gifts from Hawai‘i for dignitaries, families and friends at the various events he attends and supports. He practices Duke Kahanamoku’s creed of aloha, “In Hawai‘i, we greet friends, loved ones or strangers with Aloha, which means love. Aloha is the key word to the universal spirit of real hospitality, which makes Hawai’i renowned as the world’s center of understanding and fellowship.” Ke One O Kākuhihewa is honored to recognize Earl Pāmai Tenn as its 2019 Kukui Lama Kū honoree.
