Synopsis: The American Educational Research Association has released a statement condemning the recent violent events in Charlottesville, VA. A Hawaiian version of the statement appears below.

Aloha mai kākou, kekahi i kekahi. Eia iho nei kekahi manaʻo nui e hoʻolaha ʻia nei e ka American Educational Reseach Association (AERA) e pili ana i ka hana ʻino o ka haunaele i kupu mai ma Charlottesville, VA, i kēlā pule aku nei, ua unuhi ʻia mai loko o ka ʻōlelo haole penei:

Eia nō ka AERA ke hōʻāhewa aku nei i ia mea he hoʻokae ʻili ma kona mau ʻano a pau, a ke huliāmahi nei me nā hui ʻē aʻe o ʻAmelika i ka hoʻopau ʻana i ka inaina, ke kaulike ʻole, a me nā hana hoʻoweliweli lāhui i ʻike ʻia ma Charlottesville i kēlā pule aku nei. Eia nō ke laha nei ka manaʻo no ke kau ʻana o ke kūlana o ka poʻe ʻilikea ma luna aʻe o nā lāhui ʻē aʻe, a laha pū nō me ka hoʻokae ʻana i nā hui like ʻole e laʻa ka Hebela, nā pāʻele, nā māhū, ka poʻe no nā ʻāina ʻē, a me ka poʻe i ʻokoʻa ka hoʻomana. He kuleana ko ke kaiaulu noiʻi hoʻonaʻauao no ka ʻimi i ka naʻauao a hoʻolaha aku me ka mōakāka.

E hoʻonaʻauao ʻia nā hanauna o ka wā i hala, kēia wā, a me ka wā e hiki mai ana i ʻike kākou i nā mea e pono ai ka holomua ʻana o nā kānaka a pau. Aia ka pono ʻo ka hoʻomaopopo a me ke kālailai ʻana i ka pilina o nā hana hoʻonaʻauao me nā manaʻo hoʻokae ʻili, a me ka hopena o ia mau haʻawina i ke oʻo ʻana mai o ke keiki. E ʻimi ʻia ka ʻike e pale aku ai i ka inaina a hoʻokāhuli ai i nā manaʻo hoʻokaʻawale kanaka, a e kaukaʻi ma luna o nā hana e kupu mai ai ke aloha. E kūʻēʻē nō nā mea noiʻi mai ʻō a ʻō i nā ʻino e mahae ai ka nohona maikaʻi ʻana o kānaka, a e aʻoaʻo ʻia nā haumāna i ke ʻano kohu ʻole o ia hana i ʻike ʻia ma Charlottesville. ʻO nā hōʻailona hoʻi a me nā kia hoʻomanaʻo o ka hana ʻino, ʻaʻohe wahi pono i laila.

Aia kahi mana i loko o ka hoʻonaʻauao ʻana nāna e alakaʻi i nā hanauna o kēia hope aku ma ke ala kūpono, he ala ia e mālama ʻia ai nā pono siwila o nā kānaka nāna i hoʻokumu i nā kānāwai, a i haku i nā mea noʻeau, a i kūkulu hoʻi i ke aupuni. Na ka AERA e aʻo i nā kānaka a pau i ka pono o ka hoʻopaʻa ʻana i nā moʻolelo o nā kauā, no ka hoʻokae ʻili, ka pepehi lāhui, ka hoʻokolonaio, a me ka hoʻokiʻekiʻe ʻana o ka poʻe ʻilikea iā lākou iho a kau mai ma ka papa i luna o nā kānaka ʻē aʻe. E hana ʻia i ʻole ai e mau aku ka hōʻino a me ka hōʻeha ʻia o nā hui o nā ʻano kanaka like ʻole.

He wā kēia e hoʻomaopopo ai, ʻaʻole hiki ke ʻae ʻia ka lilo ʻana o ia hana ʻino a ka poʻe hoʻokae ʻili ma Charlottesville i hana maʻa mau. He hewa ia a he pono ka noke ʻana o ka AERA i ke kamaʻilio ʻana e pili ana i ka pono a me ka ʻole o nā hana like ʻole e kupu mai ana i kēia au. A i kona hālāwai nui o kēia makahiki aʻe ma Nū Ioka, kūpono ka hāpai ʻia o kēia hihia nui ma loko o nā haʻiʻōlelo like ʻole, ʻoiai ʻo ka manaʻo nui o ka ʻaha, penei hoʻi: “The Dreams, Possibilities, and Necessity of Public Education.”

ʻO Deborah Loewenberg Ball a me Felice J. Levine nā luna o ka AERA.
