Nana I Ke Kumu! Papa Malaʻo

Nānā I Ke Kumu - Papa Malaʻo

 

I ka Mokuʻāina e hoʻolauleʻa ana o Pepeluali, he mahina ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi (i kūkala ʻia e ka ʻAhaʻōlelo kau kānāwai i ka makahiki ʻiwakālua ʻumikūmālua), he mahalo kēia i nā koa i ʻaʻa i ke aʻo ʻana i ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi no nā kamaliʻi o Hawaiʻi nei, e like me kā ka mōʻīkāne ʻo Kamehameha III hoʻokumu ʻana i ko ke Aupuni mōʻī polokalamu hoʻonaʻauao aupuni i ka makahiki ʻumikūmāwalukanahā. Ua ulu pono ma kahi o nā makahiki he kanaono ka polokalamu hoʻonaʻauao i hoʻokumu ʻia e ka Mōʻī ʻo Kamehameha III, a ma ka ʻoi loa o ia wā, he ʻelua haneli kula i aʻo ʻia ma ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, a ma ia wā ʻo Hawaiʻi ka ʻoi loa o ka lāhui ma ka honua me kanaiwa pākēneka poʻe i hiki ke heluhelu a me ke kākau. Ma hope o ka pāpā ʻia o ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi ma ka makahiki ʻumikūmāwalukanaiwakūmāono, ʻaʻole lohe ʻia ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi ma ka lumi papa ma kahi o hoʻokahi haneli makahiki. Eia nō naʻe, i kēia mau lā, ma muli o ko mākou mau kumu hiki iā kākou ke hoʻolauleʻa i ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi i nā lā a pau ma ke kula, ka hale a me ma ke kaiāulu, ʻaʻole no hoʻokahi mahina wale nō.

While the state celebrates February as Mahina ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (as declared by the legislature in 2012), we want to mahalo those who have committed to providing an ōlelo Hawaiʻi education for the keiki of Hawaiʻi, as was intended by King Kamehameha III when he established the Kingdomʻs public education program in 1840.  The education program established by King Kamehameha III thrived for nearly 60 years.  At its peak it included more than 200 schools with instruction all in ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, and Hawaiʻi was considered the most literate nation in the world with literacy rates exceeding 90%.  After the ban on ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi in 1896, we would not hear ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi in the classroom for nearly 100 years.  Today it is because of our kumu ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi that we are able to celebrate ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi not just this month but everyday in our schools, homes, and communities. 

I kēia mahina, hoʻolauna mākou i kekahi mau kumu, limahana a me kekahi mau haumāna o ke Kula Hoʻāmana ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi ʻo Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo ma Keaukaha. He mau haumāna a moho ko ka ʻOhana Sig Zane ma Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo. He kula ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi i aʻo ʻia ma Keaukaha no nā keiki mai ka pae makahiki ʻekolu a i ka papa ʻumikūmālua.

This month we feature the kumu, limahana, and haumāna of Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo Hawaiian Immersion School in Keaukaha.  Many of members of the Sig Zane ʻOhana attend or are alumni of Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo.  Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo offers students an ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi and Keaukaha place based learning program, serving students from three years old to grade 12.  

 

Ua komo ʻo Kumu Hauʻolikeola iā Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo ma ke ʻano he kākoʻo kumu ma ka makahiki ʻelua kaukani ʻelua a lilo ʻo ia i kumu papa mālaaʻo i ka makahiki ʻelua kaukani ʻehā. Iā ia ma Ka ʻUmeke, ua aʻo ʻo ia ma ʻō aku he ʻekolu haneli ʻiwakāluakūmālima haumāna, a ʻo Haliko, ko mākou manakia pūnaewele, kekahi o kāna mau haumāna. Ma loko o kāna mau kalena aʻo haumāna, puni ʻo ia i ka paʻa o ka lawena Hawaiʻi, ka hīmeni ʻana a me ka hoʻokani ʻukulele. He kupa no Keaukaha, nanea ʻo ia i ka holo ʻana, ka hoʻoluʻu ʻana me nā mea kūlohelohe, a me ka ulana lauhala ʻana. Ma ka hopena o kēlā me kēia makahiki kula, makana aku ʻo Kumu Hauʻoli i kekahi peahi lauhala no kāna mau haumāna a pau.

Kumu Hauʻoli joined Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo as a kakoʻo kumu in 2002 and has been a Kindergarten kumu since 2004.  In the years he has been at Ka ʻUmeke he has taught over 325 students including our Web Manager Hāliko.  Amongst his many instructional talents are instilling lawena Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian values), and singing and playing ukulele.  A native of Keaukaha Kumu Hauʻoli enjoys running, experimenting with natural dyes, and weaving.  At the end of every school year he weaves and presents each of his students with a lauhala fan. 

 

He kumu papa mālaaʻo ʻo Kumu Noah ma Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo mai ka makahiki ʻiwakāluakūmāhā. Ma ia wā, ʻaʻole hala hoʻokahi lā hana iā Kumu Noah, he hōʻoia nō kēia i kona kūpaʻa i kona kuleana i kāna mau haumāna a me ka hoʻōla ʻana i ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi. He ʻiʻini kona e hoʻopaʻa i ka ʻōlelo ma o ka Hakalama. ʻO kāna mau hoihoi ka nohona “sustainable”, ka hana kamanā, mahi iʻa a me ka mahi ʻai. I kēlā me kēia makahiki, hoʻoulu ʻo ia i ka ipu no kāna papa e hoʻokupu aku no ka ʻaha Makahiki.

Kumu Noah joined Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo as a Kindergarten kumu in 2014.  In the time he has been at Ka ʻUmeke he has not missed a single day of work, a testament to his commitment to his students and ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi.  In the classroom he is especially passionate about language acquisition and mastery of Hakalama.  Kumu Noah has many interests that he shares with Ka ʻUmeke including sustainable living, carpentry, aquaculture, and farming.  Each year he grows an ʻipu for his class to offer during Ka ʻUmekeʻs annual Makahiki ceremony.

    WHAT A GREAT MIRACLE (HERPES) IS GONE… It’s obvious some patients with herpes are being enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2018 until I was introduced by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of Genital Herpes after using Dr Afrid Herbal Medicine. This is a year and 10 months since I was delivered from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about Dr Afrid. Please feel free to share Your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. Write to him on email {drafridherbalhome@gmail.com} . He deals with Alzheimer virus, Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Genital warts, ALS, BV, UTI, Virginal infection, Hepatitis A/B, Bye..

    Contact Dr Ozigidon if you have been trying to conceive, I never thought I’d be writing this message but after 5 years of infertility and nearly lost my marriage due to not being able to have a child after suffering from PCOS and my TUBES ARE TIED, and severe endometriosis and scanning, I was told that IVF was the only option. This was something we could not afford and had almost given up hope of becoming a parent. A friend of mine recommended Dr Ozigidon to me and persuaded me to contact him, I finally contacted him and he made a spiritual breakthrough to get me pregnant with his powerful spell, within 2 weeks I was pregnant (naturally!!!) and my tube was untied as instructed by this powerful sorcerer. Now! I gave birth to healthy twins in February. I am writing this testimony for those women who are facing the same challenges or even more, depressed with no light at the end of the tunnel. Give Dr Ozigidon a try to help you solve your problem, and hopefully you’ll have the same success that I have had. His email address (drozigidonhnez.spell.net@gmail.com) . Call or Whats-App him +2349054750112. I wish you all happiness in your marriages.

    Being the winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyk from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m). I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me, my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATS-APP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top
