Tribute to three Justice and Peacemakers

Tribute to three Justice and Peacemakers: Puhipau, Kekuni Blaisdell, and Leandra Wai-Rodrigues

Celebration of life

I am not able to join the Honolulu gathering at the Iolani Palace ahu on Friday, March 25, 2016  to celebrate the lives of these three wonderful people, but they will be forever in my heart.  It’s been an honor to be part of their lives in the struggle for justice and peace over many years, and we are all blessed  by their passion, spirit, and good works.  Generations to come will be inspired by the lives of Puhipau, Kekuni and Leandra.
In 1993, I remember taking three special pohaku from Malu Aina to be part of building the ahu at Iolani Palace as a grassroots people monument.  Let those pohaku stand in honor of my friends forever.  With gratitude and aloha.
