SonS Feat. Haley Kailiehu - 2018

Our latest installment of “SonS : Featuring” brings us back to the Hāmākua coast of Moku O Keawe with muralist and painter, Haley Kailiehu. Her generational roots offer her a unique lens on ʻāina based cultural practice and her craft allows her to continue the rich stories of her environment into intricate and meaningful illustrations. An active energy in the Hawaiian art community, we are excited to share our classic canvas of the “Aloha Shirt” with Haley for a limited print run of her “Koholā” artwork. Proceeds from sales will benefit Hui Mālama i ke Ala ʻŪlili.



“Kuʻu iʻa, nona ka lā.” (My fish, possessor of the sun.)

The koholā, or humpback whales, are one of Hawaiʻi’s most iconic symbols, and yet, we often fail to understand them and their function in our universe with the level of depth that they represent for us as Kānaka ʻŌiwi. As their name suggests, koholā share an intimate relationship with the lā (sun), following the its movement on a cyclical journey each year between the earth’s northern and southern hemispheres. Our kūpuna revered the koholā, as a kinolau of Kanaloa, for their ability to dive to the deep depths of the ocean—gathering nutrients and knowledge from the Pō realm—and then return to the surface where they lele (leap) into the Ao, the realm of Kānaka, making that deep ancestral knoweldge accessible to us.

Throughout Hawaiʻi, a number of places were named for the koholā and their function in the ocean. One of these places is the ahupuaʻa of Koholālele in Hāmākua, Hawaiʻi. This design, created by one of Koholālele’s living descendants, Haley Kailiehu, honors the koholā’s relationship to Koholālele and their function in all of Oceania as cultivators of abundance and recollections of deep ancestral memories. It also honors the ʻohana and caretakers of the ʻāina of Koholālele today, Hui Mālama i ke Ala ʻŪlili (@kealaulili), a non-profit organization who seeks to restore the abundance of this ʻāina and community, today, and in the future.

    Hello… My name is Will Chris
    I know people try to invest their money in cryptocurrencies in the hopes of making more money over time. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but scammers online take advantage of this opportunity to defraud people. I was a victim, but thanks to the OMEGA CRYPTOS SPECIALIST team, I was able to reclaim my money. Please be cautious; these scammers are not good people. The OMEGA team explained how they were able to successfully manipulate my investment, and I am now more cautious. Reach out to them right now because they are retrieving money from scammers.

    I want to give thanks to Dr Mahlangu for bringing back my ex husband.No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source about Dr Mahlangu . My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he broke up with me again . I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather i got in contact with Dr Mahlangu.He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. Dr MAhlangu makes him realize how much we love and need each other .This man is for REAL and for good . He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counselling, and we’re doing very, very well , in our love life . Contact :Dr Mahlangu Call/sms/whatsapp me on: +27787390989 Email;

    I sincerely want to appreciate my friends and family who stood by me during my years of struggle till when my life turned around for better on March 30th 2018. My name is Richard Wahl of Sussex County and I hit the $533 million Mega Millions jackpot in March 2018. Today I sincerely want to share my success story of how I was able to emerge as the winner of a whopping sum of $533 million. Most people may say i was lucky but i would say i worked and sacrificed for it to happen because i don’t believe in luck. I have played the New Jersey lottery for so many years without good results. I was expected to be a winner that day because I had contacted Dr. Ozigidon who already assured me of victory after casting the spell and gave me the winning numbers. I have heard a lot about his good work. He gave me the numbers and also assured me of victory. Actually when I looked at my numbers when the draws were out they were exactly correct with the winning numbers, I wasn’t surprised to see my numbers anymore. I went to my wife and said “Baby” we are going on vacation and retiring. I sincerely appreciate Dr. Ozigidon. I’m giving out his email: .. WhatsApp +234-905-475-0112. Contact him today. He is still out there..

    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 OR WHATS-APP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top
