Pioneer Mill Company photographs and interviews with Pua Lindsey and Malihini Keahi-Heath 8/13/1999
Continued from title 27257, still photographs and interviews with Pua Lindsey and Malihini Keahi-Heath separately recorded in Lāhainā on August 13, 1999. Still photographs include plantation workers carrying kō (sugarcane) on their shoulders while walking up a plank to load the cane carts, and a picture from 1905 of Pioneer Mill Company and what is currently Lāhaināluna Road. In her interview, Lindsey describes Kauhailikua ʻŌpūnui, Eddie Kamae's grandmother, as having a beautiful face and eyes. She also explains how ʻŌpūnui could look into someone's eyes and see whether they were pono or not. Next Malihini Keahi-Heath, the daughter of Paul "Moon" Keahi, is interviewed. Keahi shares stories of dancing with Aunty Emma Sharpe from the age of 12 to about 24 years old; the kids' programs at Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel; and a story of the power of protection associated with a tī leaf lei.
