MY PHOTOS ARE SCENES FROM POLOLU VALLEY, END OF THE ROAD OF KOHALA. MY PATERNAL GREAT GRANDMOTHER ON MY FATHER’S MATERNAL SIDE, MARY K. KUPUKA’A IS BURIED AT OUR KUPUKA’A GRAVESITE ABOVE THE SCENIC POINT OF POLOLU VALLEY ON THE PROPERTY NOW OWNED BY FAULSETTO SINGER/MUSICIAN, KINDY SPROAT. MY UNCLE “KUPA” SOLD THIS PROPERTY FOR $1K WAY BACK WHEN BECAUSE NO ONE WAS ABLE TO CARE FOR IT DUE TO THEIR MOVE TO OAHU. MY PATERNAL GRANDFATHER HENRY MOAE NAIHE WHO IS BURIED AT OUR NAIHE GRAVESITE IN WAIAPUKA (LAST GATE BEFORE POLOLU VALLEY AKA: PU’UHONUA ‘O WAIAPUKA and SITE OF KAMEHAMEHA POND) WAS FIRST AND ONLY TO TAKE A MODEL “T” ENGINE AND TURN IT INTO A WATER PUMP FOR HIS TARO PATCH IN POLOLU VALLEY. HE DIED WHEN MY FATHER WAS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD AND WAS THE LAST OF THE NAIHE’S TO BE BURIED IN WAIAPUKA. OUR FAMILY CLEAN UP IS THIS AUGUST, 2008 AND HOPEFULLY I WILL BE ABLE TO SHARE PICTURES AND THE SCENERY WITH YOU THEN. WAIAPUKA CATHOLIC CHURCH WHICH IS A LISTED HISTORICAL SITE, IS JUST 2 MILES BELOW OUR GRAVESITE
Here are some free Baibala eBooks from Google Books. I was taught by Mahealani that the Hebrew and Hawaiian language is very similar. One of the Hawaiian Bibles was translated to Olelo directly from Hebrew but I don’t remember which one that is.
I’m giving links for 3 bibles, the New Testament also has the English translation.
Just remember what we were taught in class, English is a reduction of the Hawaiian Language therefore does not capture the whole meaning of a word or phrase that a Kanaka was conveying.
Here are the links:

These are a few notes I took from an interview with Kepoolele Apau who was 124 (+, -) years when the interview was taken.
The book is a free download from Google Books entitled:
The only thing I found interesting in that book was this piece on Kepoolele Apau, pages 123 to 127.
Her name is Kepoolele Apau living in Honolulu at the time of the interview.
She was an attendant of Kapiolani I and witnessed Kapiolani breaking the tabu at Kilauea. At that time her name changed from Kepoolele to Apau.
She recalled the conflict between Keoua and Kamehameha.
She was born in Keahialaka, Puna, Hawaii
Her fathter: Kapa afterward named Piena
Her mother: Kanealoha
Spouse: Kawika (was able to marry her through lying to Kapiolani)
3. Mauki – lived to womanhood, died 20 years ago (1876)
Lived in Kapuokolo below King Street. Had a friend and co-laborer, Paele, they washed clothes.
Paele was the first person to contract smallpox. She contracted it while handling a bundle of wash from one of the ships they serviced.
