  2. 2. Ua Ao Hawai‘iWords 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.

  6. 6. A Tribute to Haunani BernardinoMs. Haunani Bernardino was a Professor of Hawaiian Studies in Ka Haka‘Ula O Keÿelikölani College of Hawaiian Language, until her passing onAugust 27, 2006.Haunani took great delight in a wide variety of interests, but language,music and cultural study were her forté. While completing a B.A. inGerman at UH Mänoa, she began serious study of Hawaiian language,music, and culture both at the University and in the community withseveral of the foremost Hawaiian scholars and musicians of the 20thCentury.In 1990, after completing a Masters in Education, Haunani joined our UHHilo family, bringing with her a deep knowledge of Hawaiian, rigorousscholarship, and by her example, an ability to inspire students and fellowfaculty across disciplines.Her academic and artistic legacy remains a treasured part of theUniversity. “Pulelo Haÿaheo,” a song composed by Keÿelikölani Collegefaculty in honor of the University and set to music by Haunani, hasbecome an integral part of our commencement program.In her final weeks, Haunani’s thoughts turned to a beloved Hawaiianhymn, “Hoÿonani I Ka Makua Mau,” also known as the “Doxology” or the“Old One Hundredth.” Discovering that the hymn has several verses inEnglish but only one in Hawaiian, translated by Hiram Bingham, an early19th Century missionary, Haunani set for herself the task of composinga second Hawaiian verse and arranging the entire hymn in four-partharmony.Haunani explained, “My hope was to write four lines that were worthyof the magnificence and grandness of the first verse, while also reflectinga Hawaiian point of view. Therefore, I looked to the natural world andthe things that grace our universe: the earth, ocean, sky, the stars andthe heavens. Thus, Künou Haÿahaÿa Ko Ka Honua was created andis gratefully dedicated to those voices of the UH Hilo choral group,Kealohaonälani.”This hymn gave solace to Haunani in her final days and gives us thepleasure of remembering a good colleague, teacher, and friend.

  12. 12. 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‘iMusic by Henri BergerLyrics by David KaläkauaHawai‘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 foeMe 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 workE ui ë. Strive with your might.

  14. 14. Academic Regalia & ProcessionThe wearing of academic gowns, mortarboards, hoods and tassels originated in Europe during the Middle Agesand since the end of the 19th century, it has been an integral feature of the commencement ceremonies in theUnited States. Here at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, we also continue the tradition of marching in academicregalia. Indeed, the colorful procession of faculty is marked by distinctive caps and gowns from universitiesworldwide, the velvet facing of the hoods indicating the specific field of study. Similarly, the color of the tasselworn by today’s graduation candidates reflect their major.Maize ........................................................Agriculture Kelly Green................................................MedicineWhite ..................................Arts, Letters, Humanities Pink .................................................................MusicDrab ...................................
