Why did our kūpuna think it was important to know the moʻolelo of our ʻāina? Why must we continue to pass on these moʻolelo today? The following is an excerpt from an article written in Ka Nai Aupuni on January 17, 1906 by Joseph Mokuohai Poepoe. As the editor of the newspaper,which was owned by Home Rule Party leader, Charles Kahiliaulani Notley, Poepoe was also one of the most prolific ʻŌiwi scholars and authors of the early 20th century. Read his thoughts about the importance of knowing the moʻolelo of your ʻāina ʻōiwi in the article below, featured also on our Moʻolelo ʻĀina page!

Aloha kaua. I wanted to first say that I think this is a really awesome site. For this article, I noticed a small thing you might want to fix: "Kakauolelo" was originally "Kakaolelo".
