Hālau Kekuaokalāʻauʻalaʻiliahi (Kāne)

This mele recalls a handsome and athletic Hawaiian boy from Laupāhoehoe Peninsula, Hawaiʻi Island. Full of life and energy, he climbs mountains, swims streams, paddles canoe, and finally returns home to eat ʻono food. Hawaii's treasure, Mary Kawena Pukui, wrote the words to this mele and Irmgard Farden Aluli composed the music. This mele illustrates one of Pukui's rules of Hawaian composition - when you send anything out into the world make sure to bring it back home.
