"Kulia I Ka Nuu" 

Queen Emma was often considered "to fair" since her father married Hawaiian royalty and as a result was overlooked by fellow alii members.  With the passing of  her husband, she unsuccessfully tried to seek an appointment, but remained staunch in her efforts to complete the construction and building of what is now known as, Queen's Medical Center.

On Sunday, July 6, 2014 "Ho'olohe Pono" a group of students and supporters from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa including neighbor islands, mainland and foreign countries visits and spend a week of Christian faith building, spiritual renewal and fellowship on the grounds of Ka Ho'oilina na Kuhio Community Center for about a week.

"It has been 10 years since we've been visiting and spending our time and volunteer work at the center and appreciate all of the work and aloha from the Waimanalo Hawaiian Homes Association and Na Kuhio Ike for allowing all of this to happen." commented Moanikeala Sitch, Ho'olohe Pono Coordinator.

"Since 2005 we have been blessed with the opportunity  to provide the use of the center for Moani and her group to consistently build, nurture and provide opportunities to "give back via volunteer services" to our community and beyond" added WHHA President Paul Richards.

Ho'olohe Pono has coordinated and participated in volunteer projects ranging from lo'i maintenance, project building at Kalaupapa, Moloka'i, serving lunch at the Waimanalo Kupuna Complex and offering evening workshops from the recent "re-enactment of the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom" with Dr. Keanu Sai, Dr. Lynette Cruz and others this past Tuesday evening.

We look forward to the continued collaboration with Ho'olohe Pono and our Waimanalo homestead association.
