Above: Kumu Māpuana de Silva recognizes the Medeiros twins, Leinā‘ala and Malia, for five-plus years of membership in the hālau. "I ran out of time and didn't get the bowls and plaques ordered for today," the kumu announced apologetically to the 500-or-so attendees at our 30th Ho‘olauna celebration at King Intermediate School, "but I promise to get that taken care of before the year is out." Pictured and listed below are the 65 loyal and forgiving, soon-to-be recipients of HMI's 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25-year participation awards. Ho‘omaika‘i iā ‘oukou pākahi! Congratulations to all.
