FEDERAL GRANTS FOR NATIVE HAWAIIAN ORGANIZATIONS, recently approved and supported
by Hawai`i Congressmen Ed Case and Kai Kahele include the following: Pāpaku No Kāmeha‘ikana
will receive $99,965 for I Ulu No Ka Lala I Ke Kumu.
Papaku No Kameha'ikana will document the history and lineage of hula, the traditional dance of Native Hawaiian people. Originally intended to be passed from master teacher to student, hula has been popularized around the world, resulting in forms that no longer resemble the traditions handed down from generation to generation.
The project will produce 24 webinars posted online and 12 workshops targeting 200 persons. The project team will produce a book on hula legacy and will conduct interviews with descendants of master teachers. Eight students will participate in collections management, cataloging and application design as they assist with the interviews and their transcription. The long-term goal of the project is to ensure the transmission of the legacy of hula, which is not only the traditional Hawaiian dance but also the foundation of oral history, ceremony, spirituality, healing, and wellness.
Friends of Iolani Palace, Inc. Kawaiaha‘o Church
will receive $85,218 for Iolani Palace's Gallery Voices. It is the next stage of exhibit development as part of a comprehensive overhaul of the museum's visitor experience.
Based on completed interpretive and exhibit design plans, the new exhibit area will focus on ten themes for over 100,000 visitors per year, with an emphasis on multigenerational family groups and school classes.
The museum will assemble a team of experts, knowledge-bearers, teachers, and other museum professionals to build the voice, text, and content for the exhibit panels and labels, which will reflect Hawaiian history, culture, and contemporary issues.
The project team will also engage with local residents, college faculty and students, military service members and their families, and others to ensure that the process opens as many doors as possible to serving the Hawaiian community as well as building better understanding of Hawaiian culture for visitors.
will receive $98,288 for Na Makamae o Kawaiaha‘o
. Kawaiaha‘o Church Historical Site and Archives Library, housed in the first Christian church built on O‘ahu, will improve the preservation and management of its collections through a digitization project that will also provide public
access via the Internet and social media platforms.
Collections to be digitized, cataloged, and transcribed include church administration and sacramental records; land, buildings, and grounds records; and audio tapes, music, and photographs. Documents such as baptism, marriage, death, and funeral records will provide genealogical data for Hawai‘i residents. A project coordinator and digital archive specialist will coordinate the project in addition to creating a series of videos for community members to provide instruction on the use of the digital collections to conduct research on family history. Hawai‘i Department of Land & Natural Resources
will receive $98,230 for Expanding Public Access to Kaho‘olawe through Live-Stream Video and Virtual Reality.
With a mission to restore, preserve, and provide safe, meaningful access to the Kaho‘olawe Island Reserve, the Kaho‘olawe Island Reserve Commission will implement new ways for the public to access the historical, cultural, and natural resources of the site. Due to limitations on physical access related to funding constraints and COVID-19, KIRC will develop digital tools to provide the greater community with access to the Reserve through virtual means. The project will focus on three deliverables: sharing livestreaming video from Kaho‘olawe on the KIRC website; sharing 360-degree video updates of monthly volunteer access activities; and developing a pilot Kaho‘olawe virtual reality Huaka‘i, or expedition.
The project will support the KIRC in serving as a model for other natural museum spaces that hope to maintain or expand public access beyond a physical means to local and worldwide audiences.

SHOOTZ AIMS TO 'BRING BACK LIVE,' says members of the band from Kaʻū. Shootz was originally formed almost four years ago by Harry Evangelista and Tui Masaniai as an acoustic duo which quickly
took on singer Terrie Lewis from the well known Edwardo Espejo musical family. After performing as a trio they invited drummer and drum teacher Gabriel Cuevas and vocalist Cheryl Cuevas to team up.
"With two featured female vocalists and Tui as the featured male vocalist, we were very busy with our three part harmonies until Covid hit. We sheltered for almost a year and have been playing in Keaau monthly and we all look forward to playing more, including this Wednesday in Nāʻālehu," said Gabriel Cuevas. He noted that a recent addition to the band is Don Karleen on piano and Hammond organ.

QUALIFY TO BECOME A BEGINNING FARMER OR RANCHER and receive benefits from the U.S. Department of Agriculture To qualify for status as a beginning farmer or rancher: Applicants must be an individual. Business entities may receive benefits only if all of the substantial beneficial interest holders (ten percent or more) of the business entity qualify as beginning farmers or ranchers. For example, a son moves home to take over the family farm and incorporates with his spouse and neither have previous farming experience. Their corporation would qualify as a beginning farmer/rancher. However, if a son moves home and forms a corporation with his father, who has had an insurable interest in crops or livestock for more than five crop years, the corporation cannot receive beginning farmer and rancher benefits. Although the son qualifies as a beginning farmer or rancher, the father does not so the corporation cannot receive benefits.
Applicants must not have actively operated and managed a farm or ranch anywhere, with an insurable interest in any crop or livestock for more than five crop years (ten years for Whole-Farm Revenue Protection). This includes an insurable interest as an individual or as a substantial beneficial interest holder (ten percent or more) in another person who has an insurable interest in any crop or livestock. Applicants may exclude a crop year's insurable interest if they were under the age of 18, enrolled in post-secondary studies (not to exceed five crop years) or on active duty in the U.S. military.
