Clarence Waipa and Ka'iulani

I have had the great fortune to connect with Clarence Waipa, a school teacher from Hilo. He, with the help of his students, wrote a wonderful play about Ka'iulani in 1986. It was so memorable, that Mikahala Roy, of the Ahu'ena Heiau (who saw the play 20 years ago) suggested I contact him. Mr. Waipa's sent me his play and some details of the experience of writing it. I told him that I am envious of his students having a teacher of such inspiration. I hope we'll have the chance to sit down together soon.
