*Stand tall my Hawai’i

Band of warriors of my land

The new dawn for our people of Hawai’i is upon us

For my nation I give my all so that our legacy lives on

Hawai’i Loa, ku like kakou,
(All Hawai’i stand together,)

Hawai’i Loa, ku like kakou,
Ku pa’a me ka lokahi e,

‘Onipa’a kakou, ‘onipa’a kakou,
A lanakila, na kini e,

All Hawai’i stand together,
It is now and forever,
To raise our voices,
and hold your banners high,
We shall stand as a nation,
To guide the destiny
of our generation,
To sing and praise
the glory of our land

Report on Hilo Women’s march Jan. 21

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

I’m just home from the Hilo Women’s March.  Despite Rainy weather the turn out was massive.  My estimate would be over 2000, perhaps 3000.  The program of music and speakers was excellent and really built for unity. Jackie Pualani Johnson lead off with a beautiful Kahea (Call) that set the positive tone for the rights of women, native people and other people of color, the poor, people with disabilities, Muslims, immigrants, and issues of health care, climate disaster, and peace. There will be important work in the days ahead to support one another as the Trump agenda is brought forward.

Stand in solidarity always,
