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.

 

KOHOLĀ

“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.

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga.

    The need for more legitimate hacking companies are rising each passing day because of the magnitude of scams being run on the Internet. I know what I went through before I was able to contact Osecybersailing to work on my case after getting scammed multiple times and trying to retrieve back my lost investment funds. After I have invested $670k usd with a fraudulent crypto investment company and i lost everything in the space of one month and got scammed again and again trying to find a solution which wasn’t easy to come by given the circumstances that brought about the incident, getting scammed multiple times is never a good experience for anyone involved which was what exactly happened to me when I got scammed investing into crypto currency. Many posing on the Internet as hacking companies aren’t really what they are because most of them are scammers waiting for a prey to devour, I got referred to reach out to Osecybersailing through a friend and after I investigated about their legitimacy I came across many of their testimony from their satisfied clients that got their lost investment funds retrieved working with this legitimate and evergreen hacking institute which also changed my story helping me retrieve back my lost investment funds. Many of the testimony really were saying great and worthy things about how the company saved them from financial loss, I decided to hire them after many consideration and they didn’t disappoint me by making the choice of choosing them after what I have experienced lately trying to get my funds back from the scammers. They proved they can be trusted with the recovery of lost investment funds which is why I wrote this down for other victims of scam who wishes to ever retrieve back their lost investment funds to let Osecybersailing solve their case, they’re worthy and has what it takes to restore back your funds and peace of mind. If you also wish to check your partner Whatsapp conversation to know if he/she is cheating then Osecybersailing is the best team for you.

    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; superiorspellhome@gmail.com

    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: drozigidonhenz.spell.net@gmail.com .. WhatsApp +234-905-475-0112. Contact him today. He is still out there..
