Aloha Festivals Begin at Halema`uma`u Crater in Kīlauea

The 61st Annual Aloha Festivals more...


Hau‘oli Lā Hānau e Lili‘uokalani…

September 2, 2007 marks the 169th celebration of the birth of Lili‘uokalani, Hawai‘i’s last ruling monarch who was forced to give up her throne in January 1893.




Winter Pineapple Classic -- The Cox Story

This event started as a wild idea of Seattle local, Eric Cox, as a vibrant way to drive cancer awareness. But, as many of these inspired events do, the genesis of the Pineapple lies in a family’s experience with the disease.


I just returned from a week in Hawaii participating in a five day Coast Guard safety course at Barbers Point. In order for me to work on NCL cruise ships in Hawaii I am required to complete this training.

Lost and Found: Alice Augusta Ball, an Extraordinary Woman of Hawai`i Nei

A blurb appeared in the May, 2007 issue of the University of Hawai`i’s alumni magazine, MALAMALAMA: that the Regents’ Medal of Distinction was awarded posthumously to a young woman reputed to be the first woman (and the first African American) to earn a Masters’ degree from UH.


From the Editor

Aloha from Hilo, where in the span of one week, we experienced: hurricane warnings, two earthquakes, a tsunami, brush fires and lava flows!

Mo`olelo O Nā Ali`i

The mo‘olelo of the arrival of Cook on Kaua‘i began to spread to the other islands. Ka‘eokūlani, ali‘i of Kaua‘i, sent messengers to O‘ahu to share what had happened and to describe the appearance of foreigners.



One of the big events over the summer is the Ke Kukui Foundation and Kaleinani o Ke Kukui's three-day Hula & Craft Workshop, Hō`ike and Hawaiian Festival in Vancouver, Washington where renown Kumu hula Robert Cazimero, Manu Boyd and Vicki Holt Takamine come to share their mana`o.

Pipeline Helps Isle Athletes Reach Dreams

It's called pipeline and I'm not talking about the famous surfing spot on O`ahu's north shore. Instead, it's something that's been growing like a south swell -- island athletes heading to the mainland to continue playing sports, while getting an education.



Kama`āina Profile: Alonzo Ohana

At the intersection of “M” and 41st Streets in Tacoma sits a little store with a Big Heart.


Believe me when I say that there is nothing else like IT in the Pacific Northwest.... IT is the totally fantastic “Hoike in the Park” event that the Ke Kukui Foundation has sponsored for the past few years in the Esther Short Park in Vancouver, WA.

Foodstuffs: Poke Contest and Hawaiian Festival a Big Success

With an atmosphere filled with Mai Tai’s and aloha shirts, the elegant dining room of Yama At The Galleria restaurant in Bellevue, looked more like the Polynesian Cultural Center then the upscale Asian fusion eatery that it is.


Life is...HULA

Hālau is located in Federal Way. 'Olelo (Hawaiian language) class is on Monday evening, followed by 'oli (chanting) class. Tuesday is reserved for beginners, followed by the advanced.

Nā Mana`o Ulu Wale

Just when I think it can’t get any weirder, it does! Now, five non-Hawaiians want to register with the Kau Inoa Native Hawaiian Registration program.

NEW NEW NEW Audio Clips

Listen to audio clips from some stories in the Northwest Hawai`i Times. Here's a couple but going get sah mo' bumbye!

Old Hawai`i: Pictures from the Past

In 1923, the Kim-Moniz family gathered with friends for the first birthday lū`au of their 4th child Norman Joseph at their home on Honoka`a on Hawai`i Island. This photo was sent in by Leslie "Haji" Kim who lives in Honolulu and was next in line to be born to this large family.
