Nā Momi Ho‘oheno: Volume II

Kamehameha Schools Kapālama


Nā Momi Ho‘oheno was created to capture the treasured life stories of our Hawaiian people so that future generations might be enriched by these priceless mo‘olelo of our cherished and unique way of life.

Mālia Kawaiho‘ouluohā‘ao Craver was a beloved elder, and a revered cultural resource.  Born in 1928, her life was devoted to sharing her knowledge of Hawaiian language, culture, and in particular, ho‘oponopono (conflict resolution).  Her legacy spans across Hawai‘i to the United Nations, and beyond.

Helen “Lady” Solomon Kamanā was born in Kohala in 1908.  A native speaker of Hawaiian and Spanish, she is a passionate advocate for Hawaiian language and cultural revitalization.  Tutu Helen’s childhood memories are rich with rare first-hand accounts of early 20th century plantation life.

Adelaide Kaiwi Kuamū Sylva was born in 1914 and raised in Olowalu Valley, Maui.  In the late 1920s, she moved to nearby Lahaina where she and her family have been ever since.  Aunty Adelaide recalls the days of her youth and visits her childhood home for the first time in some 80 years.
