Attention all Halawa Valley Ohana

Molokai has become the state leader in the `Aha Ki`ole Council, using Mo`omomi as a model of sustainable, local resource management. `Aha Ki`ole councils were created to organize a return to ancient Hawaiian resource management “galvanized” from a federal mandate three years ago, each island has an `Aha Ki`ole group which represents the island’s moku, or districts.

I, Pilipo Solatorio, born and raised in this moku 71 years ago, am the only living descendent at my age in Halawa. Please, please ohana – I need all your mana`o on how you feel about my calling as your representative. Please be free to come and visit me at my hale Ike o Halawa as soon as possible. We need to kukakuka and plan for a special meeting for Halawa Valley ohana, with our leader of `Aha Ki`ole for more information. Mahalo uni, ohana.

E o hana ma kou,
Anakala Pilipo Solatorio
