Created by Bradford Kaiwi Lum for Ka Lei Maile Alii Hawaiian Civic Club so that we may chant and remember to honor our ancestors as we place the signs of Kue Petition that our ancestors fought for so that we may be. The kahea went out and we first chanted in unison E Kalahui E at Iolani Palace grounds Sunday 1 September 2013 the day we gathered to celerate our Queen’s birthday, Onipa’a, and Ali’i Sunday.
