Pauahi ʻo Kalani

December 8, 2020

“Noho ʻana ka Wahine” (Pauahi ʻo Kalani) is among the traditional mele we sing on Founder’s Day honoring the December 19 birth date of our Kamehameha Schools founder, Ke Ali‘i Bernice Pauahi Bishop. The mele was written by Pauahi’s hānai sister Liliʻuokalani about a memorable trip they took to Hawaiʻi Island. Enjoy the mele as sung by Hoʻokahua Cultural Specialist Hauʻoli Akaka and his son, ʻElia Akaka KSK’18. It includes two additional verses seldom sung today.
