HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - We wrap up our weeklong coverage of the 2010 ʻAha Kâne Native Hawaiian men-only conference. Our ʻÂhaʻi ʻÔlelo asked attendees what the conference experience was like for them.

Over the three day ʻAha Kâne Hawaiian mens conference there were numerous workshops ranging from health and wellness to martial arts.

Ma ia mau lâ ʻekolu i ʻike ʻia ai nâ papa hoʻonui ʻike mai ke ola kino a i ka lua.

All of these things work well together and with that full understanding, it broadens the perspectives of individuals

We need to start feeding people things that will make them energized enough to be able to take this on and replicate it in their own communities

(Keone)

Pono e aʻoaʻo aku e hiki ai ke hoʻohana maoli i kçia ʻike ma nâ kaiâulu.

The conference has really challenged us to learn more Hawaiian, do more Hawaiian things.

Attendee, ʻAha Kâne

Ulu ka ʻiʻini no ka ʻike a mea Hawaiʻi.

we just have to open our eyes and reclaim some of that old knowledge through todayʻs things

(Kalawaiʻa)

He ʻimi i ka ʻike kahiko ma o nâ hana o kçia wâ.

Iʻm happy to see him doing some of these things. I know that he likes the hands on, and me too.

(Kalawaiʻa)

Hauʻoli i ka ʻike iâ ia ma kçia mau hana lima e hoihoi ana iâ mâua.

Sharing these experience together and passing knowledge on from one generation to the next was a common theme throughout the conference

ʻO kçia pili hanauna a hoʻoili ʻike, kekahi kumuhana nui o ka ʻaha.

You have to have manaʻo, you have to have ʻike, and all of these things are things I wish our next generation, my keiki, I hope he eat that

He manaʻo a he ʻike e hoʻoili ʻia aku.

when it comes time for them to run with the ball they have all the tools that they need.

(Ianuali)

Ke pono lâkou e alakaʻi, ua lako a mâkaukau.

The conference gave the attendees tools to better understand themselves through a cultural perspective so that they can fulfill their responsibilities as Hawaiian men.

A ua hoʻolako ʻia nô ma o ke kuanaʻike Hawaiʻi i mâkaukau no ka ʻauamo i nâ kuleana kâne Hawaiʻi.

Do you want them to be proud of being Hawaiian just because they have the blood? Or because they know what it is to be Hawaiian?

(Keone)

He pili wale nô i ke koko a i ʻole i ka maopopo maoli i ka manaʻo?

How are you going to answer to your ancestors? When it is time for all of us to meet them, will they be happy with what youʻve done?

(Keone)

E hiki ana anei ke kû haʻaheo i mua o nâ kûpuna no ka maikaʻi o kâu hana?

E ô e nâ kâne paʻa o Hawaiʻi nei.

ʻO au no kçia ʻo Amy Kalili no Sunrise ma HawaiiNewsNow. Aloha.
