Angels in the wingsTo the Forum:

The Koani Foundation would like to publicly thank some Angels who have helped

our cause a great deal. The cause is the Aloha March 2000 and the struggle

for self-determination for the Native people of Hawai’i.

A successful

fund raising music event was staged this past Saturday night. Great music was

played and fun was had by all.

The big surprise of the evening was when

Butch Kekahu walked into the club and came up to the microphone. He had come

straight from the critical care unit at Kuakini Hospital on O’ahu to be with

us.

We are determined more than ever to return to Washington, D.C.

this August, and to again walk in the footsteps of our Queen to help bring

about the restoration of the Hawaiian Nation.

The success of this

benefit will bring us much closer to those goals.

The person

responsible for this kokua is Scott McCaffery of Honolulu, a wonderful man who

sees the injustice of it all, and wanted to do something to help. Many

Mahalos to Scott, the Musicians, Gloria at Amelia’s, and to Wayne Jacintho and

Marj Dente for making the connections.

The feature article in the

Friday (3/31/00) Garden Island, written by another Angel, Brandon Sprague,

helped to educate people about the Koani Foundation, the fundraising and the

Aloha March 2000. Akua is working overtime through all of us.
