KKaeo Aha Aloha AinaHawaiians have numerous struggles every single day.  They are internal, external, or both.  We confront challenges in health, education, economy, family and so many other areas.  We constantly are telling our story, telling our history, telling others of our value.  However, that storytelling is often not enough.  

We have recently seen the power that our lāhui has to rise up through adversities, ask for answers to difficult questions, educate ourselves in order to avoid repeating of historical challenges & trauma, and continue to push ahead for the betterment of the future generations.

In my mind, one thing is certain:  more of our kānaka, of our lāhui, are no longer accepting “status quo” responses.  They, we, are educating themselves, ourselves, and expecting more of the facts and truth in return.

I mua e nā pokiʻi, e inu i ka wai ʻawaʻawa. ʻAʻohe hope e hoʻi mai ai.

Forward brothers, drink of the bitter water. There is no hope of retreat. 

Pukui, 1237
