Ke Ki‘owai ‘o Honokawailani / Honokawailani Pond (bilingual)
This legend of Waiau, in the ‘Ewa district of O‘ahu, is recalled by the students of Kula Kaiapuni ‘o Waiau through the mo‘olelo of a beloved kupuna, Sarah Keli‘ilolena Lum Chee Konia Nākoa.
The book was written and illustrated by the fourth-grade students of Ke Kula Kaiapuni ‘o Waiau in 2009 as a way to learn, preserve, and pass on the traditions of the ahupua‘a of Waiau. The book includes a bonus CD with an original oli and readings of the mo‘olelo.
The strong connection between Kupuna Sarah and the kula was in place from the beginning. Upon the inception of Ke Kula Kaiapuni ‘o Waiau, one of its rooms was dedicated to Kupuna Sarah as a way to recognize her knowledge of mea Hawai‘i and her many contributions to the greater community.
