Kudos to Moani Tolentino (she’s the new Hawaiian culture director at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa!), who got help from Sandi Quinsaat in hosting a great, two-day Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole (the state and county are closed Tuesday for the Kuhio holiday) Celebration (we need to call it a “ho‘olaule‘a”)!

1946 Sakada Napoleon Comisap

When the Japanese Army invaded the Philippines in December 1941, Napoleon Comisap (1916-2000) – then residing in Laoag City with his wife, Dionisia, and infant daughter, Esmeralda – was called up by the 3rdBattalion, 13thInfantry Regiment, Philippine Army.

Talk Story: Adam Asquith

Adam Asquith stands knee deep in water with his taro plants. He takes his time, looking for one worthy of Prince Kuhio Day for one of his customers. He holds a knife in his mouth to free his hands as he pulls the sacred plant from the murky waters.

Celebrating a prince

Anahola was the first Hawaiian Homes program on Kauai created by Prince Jonah Kuhio in an effort to rehabilitate and put Hawaiians back onto the land to become successful homesteaders.

Injury Do’s and Don’ts

I think I can comfortably say that everyone, at some point in their life, got some type of injury. Most injuries are sports related, and I’ll talk about those in this article. However, do and don’ts can apply for all types of injury.

Kudos to Kauai High School student Mayumi Fulgencio for taking the initiative of getting other students together to bring their message about global climate change to the streets of Lihue!
