OHA ohana:

Surely you'll receive many positive congratulations on the Papakilo Database ( detailed in today's OHA News Alert. Please let me add support.

A quickly search for assorted family references found interesting 1960 photos of Pu'u Laimana in Puna. But searching also found the song "Aloha Aina Oiaio" written in 1894 by my great-grandmother, Kalei Ewaliko (Lyman) of Hilo, when she was 14, published on the first page of Ka Makaainana, the Honolulu Hawaiian-language newspaper. This reborn family story triggers wonderful visions, for which we deeply thank you.

Leo: Song King, aoao 144.
1. Ku a paio no ka pono,
E Aupuni o Hawaii,
Mai na 'Lii ka lahui,
I hookahi puuwai,
Hana me ka hooikaika,
E na hui aloha e,
A haule mai na lani,
No ka pono o Hawaii.
Hui:--- E Hawaii, e ala e!
Pau ka po, ua ao kakou,
Kani kui na leo e,
O Hawaii ua ola hou!
2. Ku a paio e na hoa,
O ka hui aloha e,
No ka pono, no ke ola,
O Aupuni Hawaii,
E kupaa luli ole,
Ma ka pono io no,
A hooho mai na lani,
A e lanakila no.
3. Ku a paio na haipule,
No ka home aloha e,
Noi, imi, kikeke la,
Ma ka puka gula e,
Kali iki, meha iki,
Na leo u luuluu,
Aia hoi he leo oli,
O Hawaii, eia mai!

Is there anything that you were able to find in the Papakilo?  A family link?  A story about your family? 

Did the Papakilo assist you with something?  Kuleana Tax Exemption?  The location of a family lot?

We want to hear from you, list your experiences with Papakilo here!

Last post by admin - January 08, 2010, 04:09:40 pm
Aloha mai käkou,

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) will be holding a Database Open House to welcome 2010.  This unique networking opportunity will allow people, agencies and organizations to come together and share or learn about the different types of land database projects that are being worked on in our community.  It is OHA's hope that this will allow participants to maximize resources and prevent duplication of work, while increasing the potential of partnerships.  Here is the info:

When: Tuesday, January 12th
Time: 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Where: OHA Boardroom - 711 Kapiÿolani Blvd., Suite 500

We ask that people participate in one of the two ways listed below. 

1.   Presentation:  Individuals or organizations will be given the opportunity to give a presentation on the database(s) that they are designing or have established.  The presentation should cover basic information, such as what type of info is being stored, who has or will have access to it and if there's potential to work with any other groups by sharing information.  The presentation does not have to include an actual tour of the database or releasing of information.  The OHA Boardroom has internet capability and the use of a Smartboard for PowerPoint documents.  Please let us know what technology you will need for your presentation.

2.   Observation:  Individuals or organizations may attend and do not need to do a presentation. 

Once we know the number of presentations we will provide a time limit for them.  Please also be ready to answer questions at the end of your presentation. 

Attendees are highly encouraged to give a presentation however we understand that not all organizations will be able to share because of cultural, legal or agency sensitive information. 

Please RSVP by Tuesday, Jan. 5.  When responding, please state whether you anticipate giving a presentation or just observing.  Also be sure to include if you need any specific technology.  Based on the number of presentations, we will determine the maximum time allotted for those presentations.

I truly hope that you will be able to join us as we all move forward with our efforts.  If you have any questions or would like further clarification on the meeting, please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Mahalo and Happy Holidays,

Aloha and welcome to OHA's Wahi Pana Database Community forum.  The purpose of this forum is to provide OHA's beneficiaries a forum to share their mana'o on different Wahi Pana (Places of Historic Significance).  Keeping with the 'Olelo No`eau; "`A`ohe pau ka `ike I ka hälau ho`okahi, All knowledge is not taught in the same school." OHA realizes that we do not have all the information.

Please feel free to post mo'olelo (stories), mele (songs and/or chants) and mana`o (thoughts and knowledge) about your favorite Wahi Pana.

We look forward to hearing from you.
