PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Aloha to all Ohana of Pearl Harbor,
        Our Club continues to be very busy in August 2005. Our club sent off our scholarship recipients to
college wishing them well and assisting them in their quest to gain a college education with some
financial assistance. The Pearl Harbor Hawaiian Civic Club is proud of our scholarship recipients who are
all excellent students.
        August is PHHCC’s turn to clean Mauna`ala and affords our club an opportunity to renew our
bond with our Ali`i by cleaning the chapel and crypt and reflecting on our history. This is also the month
that we honor Queen Liliu`okalani at Ali`i Sunday on August 28, 2005 at Kawaiaha`o Church. We meet
in front of the Church at 8:00a.m. We will make purple crown flower lei’s to decorate Kawaiaha`o for the
service and then have a service at the Queen’s statue after church.
        We managed to also fit in a fundraiser at Kapi`olani Park for the Ki`hoalu concert. Mahalo to Toni
Lee for chairing this event and to all those who helped to make it a success.
        We recognize our last charter member in this newsletter. Antoinette “Toni” Lee is an active
member and an officer of this club for the past 41 years. Toni has held every office in our club except
Treasurer. Many say that they have watched her grow in our club and watched her take leadership roles in
the O`ahu District Council and then moved to the Association level where she now sits as President of the
Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs which has become a National Organization.. You want to learn and
understand the Hawaiian Civic Club movement, have a conversation with Toni Lee. She will excite you
and invite you to become involved in our club. Before long the Hawaiian Civic Clubs and Pearl Harbor
Hawaiian Civic Club will become a way of life for you and your family. Her “HIKI NO” attitude is very
infectious. Mahalo to Toni Lee for all you do for our club, the O`ahu District Council, and the Association
of Hawaiian Civic Clubs.
        Don’t forget our meeting has changed from Thursday (Aug. 25, 2005) to Saturday (Aug. 27,
2005). This meeting will be held at Blaisdell Park at 10:00 AM. It is a “pot luck” meeting and don’t forget
to bring your own chairs.

Aloha Mai,
Kaipo Kanahele

family. Paige was charter a member of Waianae HCC; her parents founded the club and she, sister GeGe
Kawelo and their familiy have been a corner stone of that club and their parents would have been so

KAMEHAMEHA RALLY
        A rally to support Kamehameha School was held on Saturday, August 6, 2005. This rally came as
a result of a 9th Federal Circuit Court decision when two out of three Federal Court Judges voted to admit
a non-Hawaiian into Kamehameha Schools. This rally drew a support of approximately 15,000 Hawaiians
and Non-Hawaiians, everyone either wore red, black or blue. Members that we know of that marched
were Barbara Mateo-Kihano and Gerald Gomes. Attending the Rally were Toni Lee, Momi and Luther
Keana`aina, Patrick Sniffen, Maraea Ynigues and Charles Kapua.

PASS S147, THE AKAKA BILL, NOW! FEDERAL RECOGNITION FOR HAWAIIANS
        You should have all received a letter from the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs’, President,
Toni Lee on how important it is to protect existing Native Hawaiian Rights, lands, resources and
programs. These include the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and federal
education, housing, and health programs for Native Hawaiians. We believe passage of the Akaka Bill
may also assist in protecting the Kamehameha Schools admissions policy of preference to Native
Hawaiians.
        Have you signed the letter and mailed it back in the pre-addressed envelope? If not please do so
now! Let us work together, “Alu Like Kakou!”, for the betterment of our people and protection of our
culture.

IMPORTANT MEETING!
         Do you want to know how the Native Hawaiian Recognition Act of 2005, known as the Akaka
Bill will affect your job, your family, your community, your state and Native Hawaiians? Come meet and
listen to Dr. Patricia Zell on Thursday, evening, 25 August 2005 at 7:00 p.m. at the Mission Memorial
Auditorium next to Honolulu Hale. This meeting will be right after the Aloha Festivals Investiture right
next door. Come, bring your Ohana, Friends and co-workers. Free parking will be available in the Civic
Center Parking Structure after 5:00 p.m .in Honolulu Hale.
