Pono Kuliaeloaʻa Naʻauao Hōlualoa Kahili

Pono Kuliaeloaʻa Naʻauao Hōlualoa Kahili lives in Maunolaha with his wife and extended family. Kahili is 75 percent Hawaiian. His name was chosen by his father and is roughly translated to concepts of “enlightenment” and “wisdom.”

Although he currently works in the engineering department of a hotel loading dock, the Liberal Arts major is uninterested in the field. Instead, he wants to pursue something in the area of mechanics after he is done at KCC.

“I wanna be able to fix something,” he said. “Look at it and fix it … I’m thinking about doing that.”

In his free time, Kahili likes to work in his yard with his grandma. She does the planting and he helps by doing the heavy labor when they work together.
