ʻAuʻa ʻia e ka lāhui…Welo!! November 13, 2020 ‘Auhea ‘oukou e ka ‘ohana o ka Hui Sīwila Hawai`i, ‘oia ho‘i ko kākou lāhui e welo nei!

I loko ho‘i o ka pāna‘i ‘ana i ke aloha, E Welo! E Welo! E Welo! As Pelekikena of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, I welcome all delegates, alternates, members and guests to the 61st annual convention and anniversary of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. As early as April, in the consideration of whether to hold a convention this year; and even withstanding all uncertainties and vocalized doubt and fears from some, as we moved closer and closer, I knew in nā‘au that this convention must happen! In the eight months of hunkering down, deliberating and meeting over Zoom and other platforms, we all have learned much. The trick really was to find the “silver lining” in heavy clouds almost smothering us. This year’s theme, “‘Au‘a ‘ia e ka lāhui…Welo!” is a poignant charge, calling for us a nation or a people to holdfast on the unification and claim of that which is ours as a people, as a kapu or as a race; allowing our heritage to live! “Welo!” literally meaning to flutter as a flag in the wind, gives the assumption that in order to welo, we must hold ourselves high with dignity and own our expected lawena. The same held by our founder Prince Kūhiō! I spent much time over the months studying Prince Kūhiō during the years 1918-1920. I chose these years on which to focus, not just because this time-period takes us back 100 years, but I marveled at the excellence and drive of our Prince. Between 1918 and 1920, the world was plagued by the Spanish flu; a pandemic, that by October 1918 (when the flu reached Hawai‘i) it had already claimed 30 million lives world-wide (Some estimates listed 50 million). I would dare to say things were more precarious than today’s 1.26 million + lives lost worldwide. Although every life matters, I look at the 1918 statistics and studied what critical impacts Prince Kūhiō led. I realized that at the on-set of the Spanish flu in Hawai‘i in October of 1918, Prince Kūhiō did not cease working. In fact, the Prince, working with the ‘Ahahui Pu‘uhonua no nā Hawai‘i was planning the opening of the new “Society” called The Hawaiian Civic Club; calling its first strategic meeting on November 26, 1918 to create a slate of officers and discuss its mission. Prince Kūhiō was home in Hawai‘i as the US Congress was on recess in November 1918 (Congress took only a one-month recess amid the pandemic). In no way am I suggesting that we carelessly ignore the danger of this current pandemic, but am marveling at Prince Kūhiō’s record, he did not allow a pandemic to create a barrier to cease his work. Kūhiō instead implored and optimized all opportunities and resources to execute his work culminating in the passage of the Hawaiian Homes Act in 1920 (100 years ago). It was this drive of the Prince, who had no vote in congress, who could only, and would indeed implement his influence as one of only a few minorities (if not, the only) in the Congress, that reaffirms my mana‘o that to cancel this year’s convention or to not consider substantive resolutions, would have been a dishonor to our Prince, to our lāhui and to our ability to Welo! Let us ‘auamo pono our kuleana at this convention. Take care of the work but, love and take care of each other and continue to stand in the reflection of our kūpuna, and WELO! Me Ke Aloha! Hailama V.K.K. Farden, 18th Pelekikena of the AHCC

Welina mai kākou, Welcome to the 61st annual convention of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. On behalf of our Board of Trustees and the Kamehameha Schools ‘ohana, I want to express how deeply honored we are to attend and participate in this year’s meeting. It seems not too long ago, we gathered in Lahaina to celebrate six decades of service and fellowship. We could not have known how much the world would change in just a few months, or that this year we would greet each other across screens and a virtual shaka would have to do. However, this year’s convention, brings together more than 60 clubs from across the pae ‘āina and demonstrates we are resilient, adaptable and united. That fact is reflected clearly in this year’s theme – “‘Au‘a ‘ia e ka Lāhui – Welo!” (Our nation united, our heritage lives!) I see our ability to ho‘omau in the spirit of the haumāna we are privileged to serve through our campuses and preschools. Despite the many challenges we face today, they have retained their curiosity, excitement and eagerness to learn. Our keiki and ‘ōpio truly embody the vision of our beloved founder, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, who believed education would light the way to a brighter future for her people. Finally, I want to extend a sincere mahalo to the many people who made this year’s convention possible and who’ve dedicated their time to keep the tradition and mission of civic clubs alive. The challenges of the past year serve as a reminder that these gatherings are about more than seeing old friends, building new relationships and sharing ideas. They are part of the civic kuleana that bind us together, to affect meaningful change and to keep our lāhui strong. E hui pū kākou. I mua!

K EYNOTE S PEAKER

Born and raised in Waikīkī, John De Fries grew up surrounded by elders within his family who were steeped in the traditional practices of the Hawaiian culture. At the same time, Waikīkī Beach was well on its way to becoming a global visitor destination. This childhood setting embedded in him a life-long awareness and respect for the symbiotic relationships that exist between community and culture, nature and commerce. John has over 40 years of experience in one of Hawaiʻi’s most cherished traditions that has become its largest industry – hospitality. His experience has lead him to serve the community as a thought leader in economic development, sustainable living, human rights, and embracing native intelligence. In recognition of his leadership and vision, John was appointed President and CEO of the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority in September 2020, leading Hawaiʻi’s visitor industry and community through the post-pandemic economic recovery and reinvention. John is the first Native Hawaiian and the first neighbor island resident appointed as HTA’s President and CEO. For the past three decades, John and his wife Ginny have lived in Kona on Hawaiʻi Island.

On 12/8/19 we held our last meeting of the year and enjoyed our holiday paʻina. We the made 50 hygiene kits filled with toiletries members donated from hotel stays. Our club purchased wash cloths, tooth brushes and toothpaste to include in the kits. 25 kits were donated to the Hamakua Baptist Mission and 25 were donated to the Student Government Association of the Laupahoehoe Community/Public Charter School (LCPCS) for distribution to those in need. Our scheduled meeting in Laupahoehoe on January 12th was cancelled due to a storm. Kilohana Hirano and Lucille Chung made use of the scheduled time to work in Hilo on our Laupahoehoe Signage Project. We worked on the project once again on February 9th with the assistance of Eva Hirano, Nani Langridge and Kim Kalama. Our last “in-person” meeting of the year was held on March 8th due to COVID-19. Kilohana, Lucille, Kawaihona Poy and Lisa Barton continued to work on the project via email. We completed and installed the last three panels of the project on June 18th. We would like to acknowledge Kilohana’s patience and diligence in the organization of and moving pictures around, editing, plus all the little details to finally arrive at our completed panels. We awarded one scholarship to Jaylen Tray L. Salboro, a 2020 graduate from LCPCS to attend Hawaiʻi Community College to pursue a degree in Fire Science. We will be partnering with the Laupahoehoe Train Museum (LTM) who received a portion of a CARES ACT grant that Vibrant Hawaiʻi was awarded to host a Resilience Hub in Laupahoehoe to provide family meals and food bags once a week to the community from September through December 2020.

Mahalo to all our first responders who, more than us, are out there dealing with this pandemic. We shall leave it up to those who know better, and thank you Jesus.

M OKU O K EAWE Council Representative: Chelsey Dickson , Maulili Dickson HCC Email: edithkawai@gmail.com Aloha Mai kakou nā pua o Kūhiō: What a joy to “gather” once again!! We have missed you, our ʻAhahui ʻohana over these many months. How we do civic club has certainly had to modify to accommodate the pandemic, but I believe that the connections, the aloha, and the intent of our work remains unchanged. For several months, the primary needs related to food, supplies and survival, especially for our kupuna, and those living paycheck to paycheck, have been at the forefront. We circulated information regarding food distribution locations, times and places to members. At times we helped to kokua where possible. Meetings in person ceased so much of civic club business. Nevertheless, there was a feeling in Waimea that time had slowed and that we were once again a small town somewhere back in the 50’s or 60’s. People are focused on neighbors, ohana and how everyone is managing. Just prior to the New Year, the club was granted its 501(c)(3) status as a non-prolt organization. The email net, `upena, has been a lifeline for keeping our membership connected. We have been fortunate during this time to have access to many internet-based programs on culture (mahalo to Kanae`okana and Malia Nobriga-Olivera), Hawaiian language, gardening, food preservation, and the like. We keep the membership informed with goings on as things come up. The board deals with action items via email but holds Zoom meetings as needed. In a recent Zoom board meeting, we discussed the RIMPAC exercises and the Kohala Coast Concrete and Precast application to dump industrial waste in the waters off Kawaihae. We are requesting records regarding their lease with DHHL as well as their environmental protection practices. While there has been a strong tendency to hunker down and deal with the basics of survival, we cannot forget that the world is still functioning and we have a kuleana to pay attention and take action to kako`o our lahui and our `aina. Our focus has narrowed to the matters impacting local and surrounding areas. As the convention nears, we will be working on how best to safely engage as many members as possible via computers. The majority of members have not attended conventions in the past so the experience will be very important for training and building future interest. It will be an excellent opportunity to see the association in action. We will disseminate the convention resolutions and hold a zoom caucus to discuss and prepare our delegates, alternates and membership. We will look at renting laptops to allow more members to attend the convention virtually. We are looking forward to holding a golf tournament in October if conditions support holding the event. The 1st annual golf tournament scholarship fundraiser, though small, was a success that brought in funds for scholarships. We also have estate items that the club is looking to sell on Ebay. We have held very successful estate sales in the past, but limiting access to 10 people at a time with social distancing and hand sanitizing stations is not wise at this time. Additionally, many in the Waimea area have lost their jobs so garage sales and estate sales are not very prevalent. It is likely, as long as the pandemic continues, that the club may move to quarterly meetings via Zoom. We will continue to stay in touch via email, bringing events and issues to the board and members as they arise. We will hoʻomau. Me ke aloha pumehana, Edith Kawai Waimea Hawaiian Civic Club

Council Website: http://manokalanipo.org On January 24-26, 2020, the leadership of Moku O Manokalanipō gathered in the moku of Kona, ahupuaʻa of Kōloa near the one hānau of our beloved aliʻi, Prince Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole. It was a great time spent together in formal and informal ways. We mainly discussed the following items- 2020 meetings and activities for clubs; AOHCC strategic plan and connecting it to Manokalanipo activities; funding opportunities; and Convention 2023 on Kauaʻi. There were 11 events we had planned to carry out between February and June 2020 as individual clubs, as a collective in partnership with other non-profit organizations, government agencies, and private businesses here on Kauaʻi. This also included a new partnership with Ka Hale Pono Inc., a non-profit that planned the 10th Annual Anahola Prince Kūhiō Day Celebration. Unfortunately many of these events were canceled due to COVID19. Moku o Manokalanipō submitted numerous testimonies as a part of our advocacy activities to both the Hawaiʻi State Legislature and the Kauaʻi County Council. The issues related to the Mauna Kea access road, protecting the wahi pana of Waimakaohiʻiaka here on Kauaʻi to protect the salt making traditions, relating to waste management, public trust funds, voting, vital statistics, and polystyrene foam. We continue to learn from all the expertise of all the active advocates within the AOHCC and we are thankful to have the opportunity to contribute in these little ways. We are thankful for all the innovative ways that our community has turned to virtual events as a way to connect with our communities around the world and continue to build relationships with one another.

M OKU O M ANOKALANIPŌ Aloha, we hope this finds everyone healthy and safe. 2020 has certainly been a challenging year. Before the shutdown due to COVID19 we were able to present our annual performance of the Life and Legacy of Prince Kūhiō at the Kaua'i Museum. March is one of our busiest months as we had 4 performances scheduled, but we understood the importance of locking down our island, and appreciate everything that Mayor Kawakami has done to keep the people of Kaua'i safe. We look forward to seeing everyone online in November. A hui hou.

Ke aloha nui ia kakou a pau. Early in the year our club was able to participate in a number of cultural and educational activities in our community including Makahiki ceremonies and workshops on waʻa culture, paddling and sailing. The global pandemic started affecting Hawaiʻi just before Prince Kuhio Day which affected all of our clubs activities for the remainder of the year. Hanalei Canoe Club remains an activity under Hanalei Hawaiian Civic Club and paddling is the hana that threads the lei of our community members together and keeps us strong. It is one of the ways we perpetuate culture and implement our education programming year round. We have never cancelled all of our events surrounding paddling since starting in 1973, not even after the devastating hoods in 2018. Despite missing these activities our club has continued to remain active in our community through food distributions, providing a college scholarship, and providing educational materials to schools on Kauaʻi to use during this challenging period of virtual learning. We hope the everyone is inding solutions to stay engaged in community and most importantly staying safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing everyone virtually at convention. Malama pono a hui hou no kakou!

Kaumualiʻi Hawaiian Civic Club participated in the 2020 census community outreach activities by encouraging our members and community members to complete their census. We shared social media posts, called community members, and shared information through in-person activities in the early part of the year. Kaumualiʻi Hawaiian Civic Club also partnered with Aina Hookupu o Kilauea (AHK) to help distribute over 1500 Kauaʻi grown produce boxes (about 13,200 pounds vegetables and fruit) to ʻohana of the Hanapēpē and ʻEleʻele community over the span of 11 weeks. Our club members of all ages came to kōkua with this food distribution and we all practiced safe distancing, wore our masks, and loved seeing the smiles of our community members. This has been a great initiative that also encouraged all of us to include more vegetables into our lifestyles and also support Kauaʻi grown food. This initiative was supported by a USDA grant as well as funds from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.

In March, AOKHCC began virtual Board and general membership monthly meetings. New efforts became our focus. First, to keep members informed and engaged via virtual meetings, email, website communication, and by phone to conduct wellness checks. This was a chance to tell us how things were going, if members needed supplies or help, and to kūkākūkā. Second, our website was updated and newsletters sent out on a monthly basis with additional regular email blasts such as the ‘Word from the Pelekikena’. We continued to emphasize the remembrance of the thirteen Hawaiian core values, to further engage members during this unique time. Also, members began individually making masks and face shields for front line caregivers. ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i virtual classes were established, 3 times weekly, which gave members a chance to virtually see each other and learn and practice ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i. We have taken this time to continue to socially connect virtually. Currently, in-person events have been canceled or postponed for the foreseeable future. Our goal for now is to provide hope, kōkua, a few laughs, and strength for our club and our community.

Hui Hawai`i O Tenesi Hawaiian Civic Club continues its mission to perpetuate the Hawaiian Culture and Aloha Spirit. Our primary function 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. In 2020, with COVID-19, many of our activities had to be cancelled. Sadly, Lei Day at the TN State Veterans Home, AsianAmerican Pacific Islander Month and Military Appreciation Month in May and Riverfest were not able to be held. Our 3rd annual luau in August had to be cancelled as well. We are on standby for the Veterans Parade and Christmas Parade where we show off our float with a volcano. Our hui continues to share the culture at the Clarksville Downtown Marketplace during the summer with ono kalua pork sales, crafts, and Tennessee grown Hawaiian plant sales. Our adult members participated in a fern and taro plant workshop conducted by our club’s plant grower where they learned how to plant and malama their fern and taro plants. Keiki specific workshops are planned for yet this year. Hui Hawai`i O Tenesi Hawaiian Civic Club is proud to further the vision of Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanian`ole

HCC Email: alohasic@yahoo.com Like most Hawaiian Civic Clubs, we started 2020 with gusto and enthusiasm for upcoming events. Planning was well underway for our annual May Day Lei Day celebration, including a very popular luau and rage. We were busy planning a summer picnic, in an effort to sponsor opportunities for our members to get together informally, eat ono Hawaiian food, and enjoy kanikapila. And we were working to schedule a visioning session with Papa Ola Lokahi during 2020 to build our strategic vision for our Civic Club in Wisconsin. By early March, unfortunately, all of those plans were put on hold and ultimately cancelled for 2020 due to the pandemic. We are adjusting to virtual everything including our local HCC meetings, Mainland Council meetings, and now, a virtual convention in 2020. We look forward to connecting with 'ohana near and far, and “moving forward with strength and aloha”!

For the 10th year, the Oʻahu Council conducted makahiki at Pearl Harbor Hickam. This event co- sponsored by the Department of the Navy was originally established as a result of consultations with the Hawaiian Civic Clubs over the development proposals for Moku ʻUmeʻume (Ford Island), Kalaeloa, and Polihale (Pacific Missile Range Facility-Kauaʻi). We were honored to have Read Admiral Robert B. Chadwick participate in makahiki games along side our royal societies. The cultural tradition of makahiki continued in January at Helumoa. Our clubs enjoyed the participation of royal societies and tourists at this annual event. Oʻahu Council was active at legislature and provided testimony on issues pertaining to the Public Lands Trust, Red Hill Fuel Tanks, Educational scholarships, Lowering the Voting Age, and Privately-owned landfills. Due to the efforts of our Waiʻanae moku clubs, SB2386 HD2-providing for a 0.5 mile buffer around landfills passed out of both houses of legislature. If you recall, this initiative began with a resolution from Nānāikapono Hawaiian Civic Club and was introduced by Ke One O Kākuhihewa at last year’s convention. The bill will soon become State law and we can anticipate our native Hawaiian communities protected from additional contamination from these harmful landfills. Oʻahu Council and member clubs were honored to participate at Hawaiian Caucus Day again at the Hawaiʻi State Capitol. This annual event is sponsored by the Hawaiian Legislative Caucus and keeps us involved with important legislation being discussed at the capitol. Oʻahu Council began working with the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement in 2019 to support the Prince Kūhiō parade in Kapolei and Hōʻikeʻike at Ka Makana Aliʻi. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the parade and hōʻikeʻike were postponed. We participate regularly at this event to honor our founder and highlight the good work of each of our clubs and we look forward to the Prince Kūhiō parade and hōʻikeʻike next year. Oʻahu Council engaged with the US Census this year and became a member of the Hawaiʻi Complete Count Committee. Census representatives were invited to Council meetings to provide reports and updates. Individual clubs, like Koʻolauloa Hawaiian Civic Club and Koʻolaupoko Hawaiian civic club actively encouraged their communities to fill out the census form online. Our goal is to increase our 2010 response rate. As of September, the Hawaiʻi response rate of 62% is slightly lower

K E O NE O K Ā KUHIHEWA than the national response rate of 65.5%. Mahalo to all of the Hawaiian civic clubs encouraging their communities to participate in Census. During the pandemic, clubs have been making masks and reaching out to kūpuna. A call for masks from Ken Farm of Kalihi Pālama Hawaiian Civic Club was answered with enthusiasm. Hundreds of masks were donated by Oʻahu civic clubs for our community in Kalihi, especially the Pacific Islanders who seem to be the most effected by the COVID-19 virus. We look forward to hosting the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center, Ocotober 31November 7, 2021. Our Conventions and Meetings committee received quotes and set up meetings with Oʻahu hotels prior to the departure of aunty Lorna. We are currently working with Holoaumoku to update her on the latest discussions. Please stay home and stay healthy. We will get through this year and continue the advocacy and education envisioned by our founder, Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole. Sincerely,

Aloha mai kākou! Our heartfelt aloha to all of our Civic Club brothers and sisters, in this time of deep introspection and mākia. The holding of this conference, virtually, out of love for the well being of our kupuna and `ohana, sends a powerful message to our descendants: Aloha aku, Aloha mai. Love is the best remedy. The Coronavirus which has landed upon our shores cautions us with vivid reminders of the immeasurable loss that our Ali`i and kupuna faced in the 1800s, by foreign diseases for which they had no immunity. Our deep gratitude to our noble leaders and organizers, for protecting the health of our community, through your love. Ali`i Pauahi stewards Loko i`a Pā`aiau, the 600 year old loko i`a of Mo`i Wahine Kalanimanuia, in partnership with the Navy and the communities of `Aiea, Kalauao and beyond.

In March, we welcomed Scott Morishige, the Governor's Coordinator on Homeless, who shared insights into how government and private entities deliver services to those experiencing houselessness and how our club and others can support ongoing efforts. Our meetings feature good discussion, opportunities for learning and growth, and wine -- and both meetings can be viewed online on our Facebook page.

Because of the pandemic, it was hard to meet with fellow members. As Interim Pres. I got involved with many community activities, such as: food distributions, meal distribution to families, food bank, gathering boxes from Costco so food could be put in these boxes and just given to those who drive up. Working with summer fun programs during these times. Serious precautions were needed to make sure our keiki were safe and that they trusted us. Pono research program…Learning what’s going on in our community from Mauka to Makai..and arts and crafts to make at home. Growing my own vegetables. When this pandemic is over, I want to share with members so they can grow their own. Also, making and donating masks for those in need.

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. Our summary of activities in 2020: Until the onset of the covid crisis, we met and worked monthly at Ulupō heiau and had just committed to maintaining six of the iwi kūpuna burial preserves in Kailua. Although our “live” presence has been considerably diminished since February, we continue to be active in matters electronic and virtual. As a founding member of Hui Maunawili Kawainui, we persist in working to secure almost a thousand acres of Maunawili lands for conservation and cultural purposes. As one of Kailua’s jve native Hawaiian organizations dedicated to re-establishing a permanent Hawaiian cultural presence at Kawainui, we took part in the successful effort to gain BLNR approval for the Kawainui-Hāmākua Master Plan. We continue to support the Kailua Houseless Service Care Program and were able, this August, to partner with Hale Kealoha in providing 50 individual meals to our homeless community. Through careful management of our scholarship monies, we were again able to offer three post-secondary scholarships of $1000 each to club members and their families. Finally, we serve as a proud parent-organization to Kauluakalana, the newest of Kailua’s native Hawaiian, non-profit organizations whose vision is that of an “ahupuaʻa lashed together by a braid of ʻāina, kanaka, and culture, forming an enduring bond that generates balance and abundance for our community.”

The event took place at our Pelekikena’s ‘ohana’s home in Heʻeia, and the club hosted youths and staff from Hoʻomalu O Na Kamaliʻi, a temporary shelter located on the Leeward Coast. Club members donated food and desert, and provided games, activities, and presents for the youths. It was truly a beautiful way to end the year. In February, ten club members participated in the Great Aloha Run, which raises funds for charities throughout Hawaiʻi. However, 2020 turned out to be a much different year than we expected. Due to the pandemic we were unable to participate in the many events we look forward to, including the Prince Kūhiō Festival Parade and hōʻikeʻike, the annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk, the King Kamehameha Lei draping ceremony and parade, and also the cleaning of the sacred ground at Mauna ʻAla, to name a few.

And recently we supported our Pacific Islander brothers and sisters by participating in the mask drive donation to We Are Oceania (WAO). Despite the unprecedented year, we remain optimistic and look forward to upcoming events such as CNHA’s 19th Annual Convention, Oʻahu Council’s final quarterly meeting, the 61st Annual Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Convention, and our Annual Xmas Youth Luncheon (which is tentatively in the planning stage). “I mua Kamehameha!”

Welina mai kākou! We are the proud members of Nānāikapono Hawaiian Civic Club (NHCC) from the beautiful valley of Nānākuli. This year NHCC kicked off the club season by participating in the Makahiki at Royal Hawaiian Hotel, which was also the O'ahu Council's 1st meeting. We then completed our Annual cleaning of Mauna' Ala and visited the gravesite of Anake Lydia Namahanaikaleleokalani Maioho, former member and Kahu of Mauna' Ala. 43


K E O NE O K Ā KUHIHEWA NHCC held its 1st workshop introducing new and old members to the Hawaiian Civic Club movement and NHCC's mission. This year the NHCC website was launched, www.nanaikapono.com, where we promoted new membership opportunities and highlighted the 2020 Christine Kunukau Scholarship application process. Once again, we were the proud sponsors of the James Kimo Kelii Coaches award at Nānākuli High and Intermediate Schools 30th Annual Songfest and presented a cash award to the winning class coaches. As we prepared for our annual fundraiser, the scholarship application process, and upcoming workshops, the devastating outbreak of COVID-19 hit our islands. The club decided to continue moving forward with our goals for 2020 and embraced technology through meetings using Zoom. The year 2020 has taught us resilience, appreciation, and, more importantly, to move forth with love and grace. We want to dedicate this 61st convention to our fearless leader, Pelekikena Kapi’olani Dolly Naiwi, who passed away on October 4, 2019. Her dedication to growing NHCC's membership, staying committed to the community of Nānākuli (the town she loved dearly) by providing continuous leadership opportunities for generations to come will never be forgotten. Her resolve to uphold the vision of Prince

Kūhiō through the Hawaiian Civic Clubʻs movement was unwavering, and she will remain genuinely missed. Kūlia I ka Nu'u!

We attended and participated in the Waikiki and Pearl Harbor Makahiki ceremonies. We also attended the Oahu Council Ke One O Kakuhihewa Meeting in January. We attended King Lunalilo’s Ali`i Sunday at Kawaiaha`o Church which was the first and last one to be held this year because of the virus. We attend the Lunalilo Home Luau with a table of 12. In February we participated in the Hawaiian Caucus at the Legislature and hosted an informational table. The Club also manned the second water table at the Great Aloha Run with fourteen of our members turning out to hand out water to the participants. In March we held our last Board Meeting and prepared for the Prince Kuhio Parade that had to be cancelled. Then Covid 19 hit us and meetings at Halawa Gym had to stop because Gyms were closed down because of the virus. The first Virtual Board of Directors meeting was held in April. The Pearl Harbor Hawaiian Civic Club is normally a very active Club in the Community. All of our events and activities had to be cancelled due to the Corona Virus. We were not able to raise funds for our scholarship Fund however we decided to give out Scholarships anyway. Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana`ole’s mission was for our Hawaiian Youth to be educated so they would become the leaders of tomorrow. The Board of Directors decided to award the same amount given last year as not to penalize our youth for our inability to raise funds because of the virus. Our Club was able to recruit five new members during this pandemic. We lost two members this year that will be honored in the Hali`a Ceremony. We paid per capita for 105 members. We sent in testimonies to the Legislature to support our Resolutions. We are looking forward to when we can go back and have our meetings in person. Convention will be a challenge this year being the very first virtual Convention in our history. We will be attending Convention with 11 Delegates and 1 At Large Delegate.

This year we continued implementing our 5 year strategic plan through our committees, drafted policy priorities, and supported advocacy efforts. Given the Covid-19 pandemic and stay-at-home orders, we had to adjust to online, virtual, and social-distanced engagements including installing our newest members in an online virtual ceremony. We were still able to lead efforts to address the public health crisis in Nānākuli, Oʻahu, and rally support in opposition to the PVT Landfill Special Use Permit application and to support the passage of Hawaii’s newest Environmental Justice legislation - SB2386 establishing 1⁄2 buffer zones between waste and disposal facilities, including landfills, and residences, hospitals, and schools. This new law will ensure that no community, including our future generations of Native Hawaiians, will have to suffer the ills of landfills.

The Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs (AOHCC) is a confederation of fifty-one (62) Hawaiian Civic Clubs located throughout the State of Hawai`i and in the States of Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, Utah Virginia and Oregon . They are the oldest community based grassroots Hawaiian organization in Hawai`i, having being formed in 1918 by the then non-voting Delegate to the United States Congress Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana`ole. They are the only Hawaiian organization to have membership clubs outside the State of Hawai`i. One of the clubs based in Hawai`i is the Waikīkī Hawaiian Civic Club (WHCC). We became a chartered member of the AOHCC in 1964. WHCC is dedicated to the promotion and perpetuation of traditional native Hawaiian values and practices and has a long history of involvement in diverse areas including native health and education. It has also been involved with several Hawaiian language immersion projects relating to native language and cultural practices. Mauna`ala Every year WHCC commits to returning to Mauna`ala during the month of July to help with the upkeep of the chapel and surrounding areas. While we were able to do our annual service in 2019, due to COVID, our annual kokua for 2020 at Mauna`ala was cancelled. WHCC anticipates that we will be able to gather, kokua and visit our kupuna, our ali`i, our `ohana and work with Maunalua HCC again next year. Ke One o Kakuhihewa We were represented at our Council meetings this year which were held via Zoom by Ike Kaaihue as permanent member and Piikea Tomczyk as Pelekikena. Roth Puahala is currently serving as the Council’s immediate past president. 2020 This year, 2020, was to be a rebuilding year for WHCC. We were in the midst of planning for our future and getting our members re-energized. Then COVID-19 hit us. We had to cancel our pa’ina, we cancelled our meetings but we continued to try to keep ourselves together. Members were adjusting to new schedules at work or not, new ways of doing things on ZOOM and TEAMS. Not all of our members were comfortable to this new way of life yet and so meetings for us has been a challenge. We will continue to E Huki Like. We look to a brighter future and the time when our members can gather, hug, discuss and engage with each other and our community.

K UKUI L AMAKŪ From Legacy to History The Kukui Lamakū Recognition was founded and initiated in 1989 by then Association of Hawaiian Civic Club President Jalna Keala. She strongly believed in giving recognition to our kūpuna 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 Lamakū Recognition into the convention agenda. The Kukui Lamakū is a heartfelt recognition of a few people by their ‘Ahahui 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 Carol NāLani & Alika Johnson Kauahi Anaina Hawaiian Civic Club of Utah The Mainland Council nominees for the 2020 Kukui Lamakū are Carol Nalani Johnson & Alike Johnson of Kauahi Anaina HCC of Orem, Utah. Carol and Alika have been an active members of the Hawaiian community for decades. Even with all of the challenges of COVID-19, they continue to be active members. Carol chairs the Policy and Planning Committee for the Mainland Council of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs (MCAHCC). This year her committee did a major revision to the Constitution and Bylaws for the club. She was able to get consensus on several issues that many believed would have caused more resistance from the clubs. Additionally, she serves as choral director for the MCAHCC. Often lifting the spirits of our members through mele. Carol wouldn’t have been able to do this without the constant support of her husband Alex, who is her backbone. Alika serves the community by making ukulele for various clubs and individuals in the MCAHCC. Wherever you see Carol, Alika is right by her side. Together, they have made an overwhelmingly positive impact on our community. ʻAhahui O Nā Lei Makalapua is proud to recognize Carol Nalani Johnson & Alika Johnson as their 2020 Kukui Lamakū honorees.

‘Ahahui o Nā Hono A‘o Pi‘ilani Earl Kawa‘a Kuini Pi‘olani Hawaiian Civic Club Nā Hono A Piʻilani nominates Earl Kawaʻa as their 2020 Kukui Lamakū honoree. Kumu Earl Kawa‘a was born and raised in Hālawa Valley, Moloka‘. He is a mānaleo, one of only 26 known still remaining with us (outside of the Ni‘ihau Community). Kumu Kawaʻa is a teacher, a mentor, a deep source of knowledge for many in the Hawaiian communitt. He 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. His respected influence has 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 by the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawai‘i that same year. Kumu Kawa‘a, a life member of Kuini Pi‘olani Hawaiian Civic Club, served as one of three keynote speakers at the 2019 convention of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs; and was also nominated and selected as the 2019 AHCC Kalani Aliʻi awardee for Outstanding Hawaiian Civic Club Member for service to the community-at-large. Nā Hono A Piʻilani, the Maui Council of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs is proud to present Kupuna and Kumu Earl Kawa‘a as its 2020 Kukui Lamakū recipient.
