After the death of ʻŌpūkahaʻia it seemed as if the ambition to take the gospel back to the Hawaiian people was all but lost. Little did ʻŌpūkahaʻia know that after his memoirs were published, they would go on to become the most widely circulated and read book on the East coast inspiring a new voyage to take place, to bring the gospel to Hawai’i. In this episode we had the privilege of traveling to the birth of ʻŌpūkahaʻia, looking out over the bay where he boarded the merchant ship, The Triumph, , and speaking with Aunty Debbie Lee, a 7th generation relative of ʻŌpūkahaʻia who had spearheaded the successful effort in bringing ʻŌpūkahaʻia’s iwi back to Hawai’i. Moʻolelo Kūʻiʻo: True History. The goal of this project is to explore the historical Christian roots of the Hawaiian people through accounts, memoirs, letters, and artifacts left behind by the Kings & Queens of Hawai’i, along with other prominent Hawaiians who also were devout Christians.
