  • 2. 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.

  • 7. A Message From The Student Association PresidentE kuahui like i ka hana. ÿAÿohe hana nui ke alu ÿia."Let everybody pitch in and work together. No task is too big when done by all.” -ÿolelo noÿeauA single person can finish a task, but we work together to complete it. When we work together weembody strength. Strength to move forward, strength to stand tall, and the strength to face anyadversity because of the mana we draw from each other.Our greatness as a hui comes from our individuality and our many different skills and abilities.We are pieces of a puzzle that, when put together, create a picture of unity. Like a deck of cards,we are all different in our own ways, but if just one of us is missing, there are so many games wecannot play.When working together as a community we feel stronger, we feel aloha, and we know that we be-long. Togetherness invigorates us with confidence, allowing us to feel like we can do anything. Wecan fly when we support each other in all that we do and, when working together, we are comfort-able and secure. We will not back down to any task because we know we are not facing it alone. Ifwe fall there is always someone to catch us.Kelson T. Hoÿomano PakelePresident,University of Hawaiÿi at Hilo Student Association

  • 14. The Star-Spangled Banner Poem by Francis Scott Key Music by John Stafford Smith Oh, say, can you see by the dawn’s early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming? 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? Hawai‘i Pono‘i Music by Henri Berger Lyrics by David Kaläkaua Hawai‘i pono‘ï Hawai‘i’s very own, Nänä i kou mö‘ï Look to your sovereign lord, Ka lani ali‘i Your chief that is heaven‐born, Ke ali‘i. Who is your king. Hui: Makua lani ë Protector heaven‐sent, Kamehameha ë Kamehameha great, Na käua e pale To vanquish every foe Me ka ihe. With conquering spear. Hawai‘i pono‘ï People of Hawai‘i’s land, Nänä i nä ali‘i Look to your native chiefs, Nä pua muli kou Your sole surviving lords, Nä pöki‘i. The nation’s pride. Hawai‘i pono‘ï People of Hawaiian stock, E ka lähui ë My nation ever dear, ‘O käu hana nui With loins begirt for work E ui ë. Strive with your might.
