Kauhiwi Nani (Beautiful Mountain)

from Haleakala Ana 'Ole by Pamela Polland


This song was composed by Auntie Alice Namakelua in 1941 for the Maui float in the Kamehameha Day Parade. It describes the wind and rain of the NE slope of Haleakala, and above all, the majestic beauty of the mountain. The song and the sentiment it expresses have always been special to the Rohrers who make their home on the slopes of Haleakala.
