KA’APUNI UPDATE: 2/22/09 SUNDAY 7 a.m.

(Posted by Wendy OSHER; audio interview with Ke’eaumoku KAPU, info. updates provided by Mahina MARTIN)

This is your Ka’apuni update for Sunday morning, February 22nd: The torch lit procession for unity in the Native Hawaiian Community began its second day of walking the island of Maui with an early morning trek through Kahana and Spreckelsville at around 1:30 a.m. By 3 o’clock the marchers entered Paia town and at 4:20 a.m., they were treated to early morning coffee and breakfast at the Ku’au Store. At 5:30, the procession was back on the road and entering Ho’okipa; and at around 7 a.m. the marchers were passing through Maliko Gulch headed for Ha’iku. Participant and organizer Ke’eaumoku Kapu provided us with this update.

On occasion, the procession will conduct protocol when greeted by families of different districts. Motorists are reminded to be mindful and exercise caution when passing by marchers for the safety of those on the road and on foot. The procession will be out of cell range for a good part of the day, but we will update you with information when communications are re-established. Further updates can be found at this website, as communications permit.
