Mahalo to all who participated in our closing Makahiki ceremonies and…
For the ones who made it to and from, to the ones that made it happen…
For the ones who presented the Ho’okupu, to the ones who grew and gathered…
For the ones who shared themselves in the presence of Lono, to the ones who exuded Mana…
For those who those who have set the foundation on which we stand, to the ones who will stand upon us…
The Hoailona were plentiful and resounded with messages of a good year to come.
There were signs of extremes, and strong spiritual presences that allowed themselves to be seen.
There were experiences that showed that when working together we can really make things move.
Blessings came and will continue to come in large bursts and light soothing intervals throughout the year, inter stitched with challenges, such testing our resilience.
This should be a year of High-Highs and Low-Lows and can prove to be extremely bountiful with each of us performing to the best of our abilities. Hence this year will require strong leadership and extensive strategic uses of our collective networks. It will be a time to onipa’a to enable great progress.
It was a privilege to have many sharing time in our quest to petition Lono to re-green Kanaloa Kaho’olawe. The blessings of Lono will carry through with each and everyone of us, our families, ili, ahupuaa, moku, mokupuni and as a collective Pae Aina.
May the waters be sweet, the food be abundant and the lands be cared for in the way of our ancestors. Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono.
Aloha Kakou A Pau
