Three Generations of Change: 1896, 1970s, 2020

He Mele Uhau - Nāwahī Papa 11

E pili ana i kēia mele uhau

He mele uhau kēia e hōʻike ana i ke au hulihia o nā makahiki 1893-1898, ke au maʻewa ʻo nā makahiki 1970-80, a me kēia au nei, he wā lolelua hoʻi kēia o ke au ʻenehana, ka maʻi ahulau, nā ʻano hoʻokae like ʻole, a me ka heheʻe ʻana o ka ʻāina i kēlā lā me kēia lā.

 

The 11th graders of Nāwahī bring to life the struggles of the late 1800’s during the Kūʻē Petition and annexation of Hawaiʻi, the resurgence of the Hawaiian Renaissance of the 1970s, and the unprecedented times of technology, the world wide pandemic, prejudice, and climate change at the forefront of our lives in this new millennium. This journey through time is presented through a poignant slam poem weaving Hawaiian and English together to motivate and inspire the upcoming generations.
