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
