  • 1. Ua Ao Hawai‘i Words by Larry Kimura Chant melody by Kalena Silva Kau 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 light I 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, brilliant Mai 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.

  • 4. Keynote Speaker Sig Zane Designs has been in Downtown Hilo over twenty-five years. Focusing on the heritage and practices of the Hawaiians, his art reflects his surroundings and his passions. His interpretations of nature of popular motifs on aloha shirts, dresses, bags, and tees. Working with ‘ohana, his wife Nalani Kanaka‘ole and son, Kuhaoimaikalani Zane, are partners in projects. Pivotal in decision and keeping the traditions alive, the three partners have been working on special projects for more than a decade, implementing design with fundamentals rooted in culture and place. A most recent project with Hawaiian Electric incorporated ohe kapala, the traditional bamboo stamp design. They used this ancestral process to create a logo for the largest utility company in our state. Similarly, they have created iconic images for jewelry, hotel rooms, and airplanes. Student Speaker Amanda O’Farrell, a Hawaiian Studies major, serves as student speaker. O’Farrell was born in Hilo, raised in Puna, and graduated from the Kamehameha Schools Kea‘au campus. She has maintained a 3.6 GPA at UH Hilo and made the Ka Haka ‘Ula O Ke‘elikolani Dean’s List four times. Amanda has been an active participant in numerous cultural and environmental initiatives throughout the island. Her immediate post-graduate plans are to care for her two young children but Amanda hopes to return soon for graduate school to pursue a masters degree in ethnobotany/ ethnomedicine. Amanda says her dream is to become a traditional Hawaiian healer, practicing the art of la‘au lapa‘au and lomilomi. She has also expressed interest in pursuing a Ph.D. in traditional medicine or public health.

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?
