Personal statement:
i na aumakua i na kupuna i na paeaina aloha e, aloha e Welina mai kakou, I am Kaliko Chun and ask for your consideration as a delegate for Hawaii island. As a resident of Kona, my kupuna roots are in Kona and Kau, and as many other hawaiians, have ohana roots on other islands too. I carry on the work of my mother, father, and kupuna, and advocate for our rights, our culture, our aina,-- as the maoli, abloriginal people of this land. When Kamehameha said to his warriors, "...imua e na poki'i...", they all were to go forward, and would drink the bitter waters. But -- go they must. While there are many questions, we must gather and listen --- give every voice, hearing -- for those not present, share their voices. I stand --- to learn, to listen, to participate. Please stand with me. This quest will be long, easily misunderstood. Let us remember daily the guidance of our Ke Alii Liliuokalani:: "...remember to never cease to act because you fear you may fail....to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen, and to know the unknowable --- that is ALOHA."
