Kauakūkalahale

Honolulu Star-Bulletin

October 27, 2002

Ka Hōkū Buletina

Laiana Wong

Kauakūkalahale column debuts today The Honolulu Star-Bulletin today begins a weekly column in Hawaiian. Titled Kauakūkalahale (the rain that announces itself to the roof of every house) it will appear each Sunday on Page A2. The Hawaiian column will be coordinated by Laiana Wong and Kekeha Solis, of the Department of Hawaiian and Indo-Pacific Languages and Literatures at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Each column will begin with a synopsis, in English. Topics will include current events, features and profiles. To honor the Star-Bulletin for beginning the Hawaiian column, Wong has written a "name" song, which used to be customary when a newspaper was established. The song is titled "Ka Hōkū Buletina." Generally speaking, the song is announcing the new publication, "kind of like saying a new kind of flavor for readers -- the Hawaiian language, the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people," Wong said. "Let it be known that this column is coming out and the Star-Bulletin is doing it and we would like you to subscribe," he said. "It's finally here." -- Frank Bridgewater, Editor

E kuʻi aʻe ka lono

No ka hōkū kau ahiahi

E pāhola nei kona aloha

A waiho kāhela i ka laʻi

E hoʻomoe ʻia mai

Kona kino kīnohi ʻia

Na ka maka e lawe aʻe

A lawa ka makemake

He ʻono nō i ka ʻai

A he mikolololehua

Nā hua palapala kanaka

He ʻōnohi kau i ka maka

ʻAkahi hoʻi a ʻike

Ua ola ka leo ʻōiwi

Ka iwihilo o ka lāhui

Ka leo aʻo Hawaiʻi

E kuʻi aʻe ka lono

I mua o ke ākea

Ua ola nā iwi ʻōiwi

No Ka Hōkū Buletina he inoa
