Küpopou

Note: Because most Web browsers are unable to display the kahako (horizontal line, or macron) used to add emphasis to a vowel in written Hawaiian, we have substituted the corresponding vowel with an umlaut (two dots, or dieresis). To view this text as it was meant to be read, you must have a Hawaiian-language font installed on your computer. You can obtain free versions of these fonts from the University of Hawaii-Hilo's Web site, http://www.olelo.hawaii.edu/eng/resources/fonts.html

Some newer Web browsers, (such as Netscape 7 and Internet Explorer 6 on certain operating systems) can display kahako without a Hawaiian-language font, using a specialized coding system called Unicode. To jump to a Unicode version of this column, click here.


Ha‘ina Nane


Synopsis: Winner of the first nane. And another old nane showing proof of the intelligence of our küpuna.


Ha'ina nane.

Aloha mai e Kauakükalahale,

Kaino a ua kuhi pololei akula au i kahi ha'ina nane; eia kä, ua hemo ma ka 'äpua ka i'a pahe'e. Ua kapa 'ia ka 'äpua he "pai" kekahi ma muli o ka pai 'ia 'ana o ka 'äpua me ka i'a i pa'a o loko. A he mana'o 'oko'a ko ka pai: he 'ano kupukupu e ulu ana ma kuahiwi. Eia kekahi mea hou e ulu ana ma kuahiwi: 'o ka WÄWAE'IOLE, 'o ia ho'i he limu no uka. Ulu pu ka limu WÄWAE'IOLE i kahakai, a no laila 'elua 'ano limu i kapa 'ia he WÄWAE'IOLE. 'O ka wäwae o ka 'iole ka hoa like o ua mau limu lä, 'o ia ke kumu i kapa inoa ai.

Kawika Tengan, Pauoa

Ke wï a'ela ka niho o ka 'iole, ua pa'a ihola i ka 'ümi'i a ke keiki o Pauoa. Pau akula kekahi makana i ka lilo. Koe mai ka makana o kekahi nane. -- L.H.

A eia mai kekahi nane mai ke au kahiko mai. Akamai maoli nö nä küpuna i ka nane.

He Olelo Nane i ka Lahui.

He wahine e holo ana maluna o kona lio ponoi; i kekahi la, ua kuko kekahi wahi keiki opiopio e kaili i ka lio o ka wahine; aka, ua manao oia, aole e hiki ke hookoia ia manao ona; Nolaila, ua hele aku la oia a loaa kekahi kanaka ikaika, a kuka pu oia me ia, no kona manao e kaili i ka lio o ka wahine; ma kona nonoi ana, ua ae mai ke kanaka ikaika e kokua i ua keiki la, ma ke kaili ana ae i ka lio o ka wahine. Ua lako ke kanaka kokua, me na kaulaili hoohei, me na pu panapana liilii me ka huipa hili-lio.

Ma ka auinala o kekahi la, ua maalo ae la ka wahine maluna o kona lio; ia wa i lele koke mai ai keia mau kanaka opio; a paa aku la i ka wahine a me kona lio, a kiloi ae la i ka wahine nona ka lio ilalo, a kaili aku la i ka lio a lilo aku la ia laua.

Ma ia wa, hele ka wahine e hoopii i ka Lunakanawai, e koi e hoihoi ia mai ka lio. Mahope iho o ka lohe ana o ka Lunakanawai i na olelo hoike e pili ana i ka mea nona ke kuleana io maoli; ua hooholo ka Lunakanawai, no ka wahine no ka lio. Kauoha ka Lunakanawai i kela mau kanaka opiopio elua, e hoihoi i ka lio i ka wahine me ka uku pu i na dala o ke koina; -- Ae mai ke kanaka opio ikaika, e hoihoi i ka lio i ka wahine; aka, oiai aia ka lio i kahi keiki opio kolohe kahi i paa ia ai, ua hoole mai la oia, a olelo mai la; Aole e loaa aku ka lio oiai, mamuli no o ko'u ikaika ka lilo ana mai o keia lio ia'u. Na kela kanaka ikaika no e huli i lio, a hoihoi aku i ka wahine. Aohe no ou kuleana e ka Luna-kanawai, e kauoha mai ai ia'u e panai aku i ka hana kolohe a kela kanaka i hana ai i ka wahine.

E! e lohe oukou; e paa ana no au i ka lio no'u; ka mea i loaa ia'u ma ko'u ikaika ponoi iho. Aole loa au e haawi pio iki aku ana.

E ka Lahui Hawaii: Owai la keia wahine nona ka lio i kaili ia? I ka wa hea la i kaili ia ai? Heaha keia lio i kaili ia? Owai kela wahi keiki opiopio ikaika i kokua ai iaia. Owai la ka Lunakanawai nana ka olelo hooholo, e kauoha ana e hoihoi ia ka lio i ka wahine?
