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.

Hale Noa


Synopsis: This is a short article that extols the virtues and benefits of visiting the Hale Noa 'awa bar in Kapahulu.


Aloha mai e nā makamaka o Kauakūkalahale e heluhelu nei i ku'u wahi mana'o. Ke welina nei i nā pua e pulu nei i nā paka ua o Kauakūkalahale, nā pua ho'i e kūlia ana i ka nu'u, mai ka hikina o ka lā ma Ha'eha'e i ka moku o Keawe a i ka moku kā'ili lā o Manokalanipō, pau pū ho'i me Ni'ihau o Kahelelani. Ke aloha nō.

'Auhea 'oukou e nā makamaka aloha o ka 'ōlelo Hawai'i. Ke kono nei kēia mea kākau iā 'oukou e nā mea e huli nei i kahi no ke kama'ilio 'ana ma waho o ka papa. I nei mau lā, e nui a'e ana nā wahi e kūkahekahe ai ma ka 'ōlelo Hawai'i. A eia kekahi wahi hou a'e, 'o ia ho'i, 'o ka Hale Noa. 'O ia kahi e kū'ai 'ia ai ka 'awa. Pōmaika'i wale nō kākou a pau, i ka ua mea 'o kona ho'okumu 'ia 'ana mai ma Kapahulu, O'ahu, ma kahi ho'i i kokoke wale mai nō i ke kulanui o Hawai'i ma Mānoa. He pahuhopu nui ko ka Hale Noa ke ola maika'i 'ana o ka 'ōlelo Hawai'i, a 'o ia ihola kona mea e ho'oikaika nei i ka paipai 'ana i ka po'e 'ōlelo makuahine o nēia 'āina. He lohe pinepine 'ia ka 'ōlelo kanaka ma loko o ia hale a he po'e wale waha ho'i ka hapanui o nā limahana i laila.

He mea ho'ohau'oli nō ke komo 'ana ma kahi e lohe 'ia ai ka 'ōlelo Hawai'i ma Hawai'i nei. 'A'ohe wahi hou aku o ia 'ano. He nanea mai ho'i kau ka pepeiao a he le'ale'a ho'i ka waha; i loko nō o ka mā'e'ele. A no ka mea, 'o ka 'o'oki mai o ka 'ona a ka 'awa, he mea ia e kani ai ke oli. Eia hou ho'i, inā e ha'i mai 'oe i kāu e makemake ai ma ka 'ōlelo Hawai'i, e pane a kōkua aku ana kekahi limahana iā 'oe ma ia 'ōlelo nō. I kēlā me kēia pō o ka hemo laka 'ana aku o ka puka, aia kekahi limahana ma laila e kūkahekahe pū ai me 'oe.

Mālama 'ia ua Hale Noa nei ma ke 'ano he wahi inu lama, akā na'e, 'o ka 'awa wale nō ke kū'ai 'ia. I ka hapa nui o nā pō e hemo ai ka Hale Noa, e piha 'ū nō 'o loko me he mea lā ua lē'ī Kohala i ka nu'a nā kānaka. Pa'ē mai nō nā leo nahenahe o nā pu'ukani a me kā lākou po'e pila.

Ma muli o kēia mau kumu 'elua, 'o ia ka'u e paipai aku nei iā 'oukou, a pēia pū ho'i me ka lehulehu, e kipa mai i ka Hale Noa. 'O ia nō ka'u mea pono'ī i kipa mua aku ai i ka Hale Noa. A ma ia manawa mai i lilo maila ho'i ka Hale Noa i wahi alahula no'u.

'Oi kipa aku nō kēia a hiki i kēia lā. Eia na'e he kumu hou ko'u e kipa aku ai i kēia mau lā. 'O ka ho'omau 'ana i nā loina o nā kūpuna o kākou, ua lilo mai nei he mea nui ko'iko'i ia no'u.
