Ka'iwakīloumoku...


Koa and I were fortunate to visit the new Hawaiian cultural center at Kamehameha Schools this evening. It is named Ka'iwakīloumoku...a reference to Kamehameha 'Ekahi. The 'iwa bird that hooks the islands together. It was very beautiful and full of ancestral spirits. Elliott was fortunate to sound the pū, the helmet shell, for the opening ceremony yesterday. He came home and excitedly told me about all the hōʻailona. The sudden heavy downpour, the winds, the quiet Sunshine...all the natural elements joining in the celebration as glorious signs of otherworldly approval...
