Kipahulu Farmers Honored by Aloha Festivals

Aloha Pu’uhonua ‘o Hana. We are proud to recognize our 2018 Grand Marshalls, Hāna’s own John and Tweetie Lind. John and Tweetie are the co-founders of the Hāna District Pohaku, Hāna Canoe Club, co-founders of East Maui Taro Festival, the Kauiki Council, and their land-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit group, the Kīpahulu Ohana. They’re residents of Kīkoʻo, Kīpahulu, Maui.

Their love for the ‘aina is better understood through their active participation in various Indigenous Grassroots organized events, including the 1977 Kahoʻolawe Movement to end the US Navy Occupation of Kahoʻolawe as a military bombing target, which officially ended in 1994 with the return of Kahoolawe to the State of Hawaiʻi. The State of Hawaiʻi has a responsibility to the Kanaka Maoli interest, including preserving the island of Kahoʻolawe in a trust for a sovereign native Hawaiian entity. In Kīpahulu, they defended Kanaka human, cultural, and property rights from the Haleakalā National Park expansion via the 1982 Kīpahulu Condemnation of indigenous kanaka land titles in the proposed Kīpahulu, Hāna and Kaupo Moku. They’re passionate of all the issues facing the future of Hāna and Maui Nei. 

John would like to recognize his Parents and former Kīpahulu Ranch Manager John Crichton “Jack” Lind and Daisy Ka’eka Mailou. Tweetie would like to recognize her parents John Helekahi and Josephine Librando-Kaho’opi’i. Together we would like to celebrate the cherished memories of the Kupunas of the Ka’uiki Council including Michael Pu’uwiki Minn, Larry Kaikala, Parley Kanakaole, Richard Keohuhu, Peggy Ha’o Ross, Nani Kaina, Peter Konohia, Apolonia Day, Papa Harry Mitchell, Ellen, Bill, and Margret Kauimakaole, Murray & Violet English, Tevi Kahaleuahi, Joe Daniels, and all the kupunas who came before us. 

Tweetie is the current President of the Kīpahulu Community Association and her focus is education and genealogy amongst the ‘Ohana of Hāna, while John is a taro farmer, fisherman a true Hawaiian Patriot and a traditional Konohiki.
