On the occasion dedicated to Reverend Enoka Semaia Timoteo

Aloha nui iā ʻoukou a pau i kēia hanana kūikawā a mākou e hoʻomanaʻo ai i ke Kahu Enoka Semaia Timoteo. I kēia lā ke hoʻohanohano nei mākou i kona hoʻomanaʻo a me kona ola mau ʻana me ka hōʻike ʻana e pili ana iā ia a me ka wehe ʻana o kona lua kupapaʻu i hoʻihoʻi ʻia ma ka hale kupapaʻu o Wainee ma Waiola Church.


Aloha nui to all of you on this special occasion in which we remember the Reverend Enoka Semaia Timoteo. Today we honor his memory and his lifetime of service with a presentation and the unveiling of his restored gravesite at the Wainee Graveyard here at Waiola Church.


Unfortunately, attending today’s event was not possible for me, so I am with much appreciation to Tamalani Kaleleikī, KCRC, Knight Commander of the Royal Order of the Crown of Hawaii who is most gracious to appear on my behalf and share my thoughts with you. I want to recognize the tireless and generous work by the dedicated hands and hearts of the members of Nā Kiaʻi O Waineʻe. With the support of Waiola Church’s Kahu and its members, Nā Kiaʻi O Waineʻe, founded in 2011, provides loving care for this historical graveyard in which sits the Royal Tomb of Sacred Queen Keopuolani, many illustrious Aliʻi Nui and leaders from within our Hawaiian history. I would also like to commend, Dr. Ron Williams, Jr., who has made his way into the hearts of many of us with his bright enthusiasm and sincere commitment to reveal what has been unrevealed and to tell what has been untold for many years, even lifetimes. I am certain everyone here will be enlightened with the  knowledge you are about to hear, thanks to our friend Dr. Ron Williams, Jr. who is also known to us as, Hilinaʻi.


Ke oluolu ʻoukou, I am so very proud and humbled to know and love this wonderful circle of Hawaiians. May God’s precious grace and wisdom be with us all.


Mahalo piha, a me ke aloha pauʻole,

Owana Kaʻōhelelani
