It is the second day at Malama ‘Aina Field school. We have our guest speaker Kumu Hina from OHA and Hawai'i News Now came to film our program. Kumu Hina told us that even though people say bad things about us we shouldn’t listen to them, and that we should stand strong in our culture no matter how difficult our situations get. We also sang three different mele - Hawai'i Pono'i, Hawai'i Aloha, and Mele 'Onipa'a Mau No Ke Aloha 'Aina and learned the deeper meaning behind each of these songs. We struggle to strive for greatness and to manifest anyone's destiny through hatred and love. She really inspired us with her story. Hawai'i News Now also came in to film a story about our program! When Kumu Hina finished talking to us, we watched an 8 minute video on how to make an “aha” it has 8 aho (string) which we’ve made tight and strong. The Aha represents everyone in our community who is knowledgeable in different parts of our culture and how we can all come together to strengthen each other.
