`Elele Waha `Ole
Aloha mai Kākou,
It is an honor and a privilege to be elected Pelekikena of the Hawaiian Inter-Club Council of Southern California; an outstanding organization with a long history of serving the Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Island communities; Mahalo ke Akua.
This year we celebrate 39 years of service to the community. I have been behind the scenes for many years and have seen first-hand how our community has effected the community around us. Living away from the `aina, we have a need to stay connected with our aumakua and seek answers to the question of, “who we are.” It is paramount for our keiki and their ‘ohana. The impact we have on the greater community as we honor our ancestry has created a legacy of sharing aloha that has brought a very positive distinction to our Hawaiian community here on the Continent.
Nation building continues for the Hawaiian people as we still struggle with remnants of the overthrow of our sovereign rights and the annexation as well as Federal Recognition for the Nation of Hawai’i. The “Ku`e Petition Continues” are here again. Please join them and look up the names of your kūpuna who opposed the annexation of Hawai’i to the United States. Hele mai and kūkākūkā.
We extend a big mahalo to the County of Los Department of Parks and Recreation who has allowed HICCSC the use of park facilities and staff for the past 36 years. Thank you to the office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas, John Wicker, Department Director, as well as the hard working staff of Mika Yamamoto and Joe Mendoza who work tirelessly each year to make the event happen. Also a big mahalo to Dal Toruno and the El Camino Community College security staff for their years of support. Mahalo to our member clubs for their continued support and mahalo to the members of the Board of the HICCSC for their hard work in making the annual ho’olaule’a a success. Most of our board will be turning over in the next couple of years; mahalo to those who are stepping up to help with this kuleana and many, many other small integral parts.
Please enjoy your time with us and thank you for your continued support. Please help us to promote aloha by being kind and patient to others; especially our kūpuna and keiki. We have had many great leaders that have come before me and have laid the path for us. I am humbled to be a part of that journey and honored to be chosen to keep us on that path.
