I read this in the paper today:
Ka'u oral history project at Pahala library
"The Pahala Public & School Library will host "Na Wahi Pana o Ka'u" (The Celebrated Places of Ka'u), an oral history project by Ka'u High students, on Monday at 6 p.m. Admission is free.
Sponsored by the Hawai'i Council for the Humanities, the project was conducted by second-year students of kumu Maile Moulds-Carr. Dr. Charles Langlas of the University of Hawai'i-Hilo Anthropology Department was the project adviser.
The program will feature the showing of a DVD, which includes interviews with 10 kupuna from Ka'u. A question-and-answer session will follow. Copies of the students' book, "Na Wahi Pana o Ka'u," will be available for purchase from the Ka'u High administration office."

It's amazing how they don't write about the history of Ka'u which is fascinating. It's where I was baptized as a Protestant. It's also the place where some Hawaiians killed some of their chiefs and I want people to know how nasty some Hawaiians were to other Hawaiians. It shows that Hawaiians are human. It also shows that Hawaiians can and will be vicious too. Unfortunately many people mistakenly think that Hawaiians are gentle people but that's not always the case. Some can be vicious *LOL*
