  • Ua Ao Hawai‘i Words by Larry Kimura Chant Melody by Kalena SilvaKau e ka wena o ke ao i ka lani The announcement of dawn appears as a glowing streak upon the heavens,He wekeweke i ka pö pilipuka It is a narrow opening in the darkness heralding the day,He ‘elele o ka poniponi hikina It is a messenger of purple glimmer from the east.Kau ke kähe‘a wana‘ao i ka ‘äla‘apapa Streaks of red stain long cloud formations,La‘i ana i luna o ke kükulu o ka lani lä Reposing serenely upon the pillars holding up the heavens;‘O ka‘u ia e huli alo nei i ka ulu ë I turn to gaze upon this, focusing on growth and the rising of a new day,‘Ae, ua ao ë. Yes, day has arrived.Hö mai lä kö mälamalama Bestow upon us your radiant lightI ka honua nei i ka mauli ola Here upon the earth, filled with the spirit of life.Ua ao Hawai‘i ke ‘ölino nei Hawai‘i is in the brightness of day, it shines, brilliantMai ka pi‘ina a ka welona a ka lä From its boundaries from the east to the west.Kähiko ‘ia i ka ‘ike manomano It wears as its finery a myriad of knowledge,Ka ‘ike köli‘u mai o kikilo mai Of deep insight from the depths of antiquity.‘O ka‘u nö ia ‘o ka pülama My sole duty is to embrace and to cherish,A pa‘a ma ka ipu o ka ‘ike ë. So it may be firm in the repositories of enlightenment.‘Ae, ua ao ë. Yes, day has arrived.He mele no Hawai‘i ua ao. This is a poem for Hawai‘i which has seen the light of day.

  • Keynote AddressRegent Emerita Ah Quon McElrath, a key figure in the early years of Hawaiÿi’slabor movement, was born in 1915 in Iwilei on Oÿahu. She was one of sevenchildren born to parents who immigrated from China, all of whom went to workin the pineapple canneries by the age of 13.Ms. McElrath had become politically active around the time she enrolled at theUniversity of Hawaiÿi. She supported the pre-World War II boycott of NaziGermany and Fascist Italy and became a member of an activist group called theInter-Professional Association. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in sociology andgraduated with honors in anthropology in 1938. That was the same year thatlegendary labor leader, Jack Hall, was arrested during the Inland Boatman’sUnion strike from the August 1st “Hilo Massacre,” which resulted in thewounding of 50 picketers by police gunfire. Ms. McElrath’s work with Hallon the trade union paper, “Voice of Labor,” introduced her to Robert McElrath,whom she married in 1941.The McElraths, along with others, organized four large companies, including theHawaiian Pineapple Company, whose members were turned over to the Interna-tional Longshoremen’s and Warehouseman’s Union (ILWU) when it wasofficially established in Hawaiÿi in 1944. By 1954, the union had grown toinclude a consolidated membership of waterfront, sugar, pineapple, supermar-ket, hospital and hotel workers and various other trades.Ms. McElrath was a familiar face at the state legislature, where she lobbied onbehalf of numerous standards of living improvements, including increases inpublic assistance, occupational safety, health care, improvements in worker’scompensation, unemployment insurance, the Temporary Disability Insurance(TDI) Act, and ethnic and women’s equality, including abortion rights.In 1995, Ms. McElrath was appointed to the UH Board of Regents by GovernorBen Cayetano and served until 2003. Much of her tenure was spent chairing theAcademic Affairs Committee, which she headed from 1998-2002. She also servedtwice as chair of the Committee on Student Affairs.Earlier this year, Ms. McElrath was honored with the UH Founders AlumniAssociation Lifetime Achievement Award for her leadership in advocating socialchange in education and improving social conditions throughout Hawaiÿi. Shewas also named a recipient of the 2004 Hooulu Award for leadership from theHawaiÿi Institute for Public Affairs. Student AddressCandy A.

Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

  • Academic RegaliaThe academic costume worn by faculty during commencement comes from an oldtradition dating from the Middle Ages. At the time, all students were clerics. Academicregalia were worn to keep students warm as well as to identify the religious order towhich the students belonged.In the United States of America, academic costumes were established based on theintercollegiate code of 1895. Each aspect of the costume, such as gown color, mortarboardtassel, and sleeve shape, indicated something about the wearer and the highest degreereceived.Most gowns are black, but some schools use brightly colored gowns. The color of thetassel indicates the highest degree earned by the wearer; a doctor’s cap frequently bears atassel of gold. Sleeves that are pointed are worn by holders of a bachelor’s degree, oblongsleeves by holders of master’s degrees, and bell-shaped sleeves indicate the wearer holdsa doctorate or specialist degree. The doctor is distinguished by the three bars that adornthe sleeves of the gown.The brightly colored hoods are the outstanding feature of the academic costume. Theyrepresent both the field of study and the university from which the degree was earned, asrepresented by the colors of both the border and the lining.Here at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, we also continue the tradition of marching inacademic regalia. Indeed, the colorful procession of faculty is marked by distinctive capsand gowns from universities worldwide. Similarly, the color of the tassel worn by today’sgraduation candidates reflect their major.Maize.....................................................
