Great Grandma Adeline - Last Manaleo of the family

Here is a video that is truly a treasure for my entire 'ohana. My great-grandmother Adeline, on my mother's side, was the last manaleo of our 'ohana. A manaleo is someone whose first and primary language was Hawaiian.

There are definitely folks in the 'ohana that still speak the native tongue but none of us that know it today had it as our first language. It was a blessing to be able to find this short clip, from the video called 'Kapu Ka'u' wherein my great-grandmother Adeline tells a brief memory of growing up in Ka'u. 

She passed when I was 5 years old. I only recall meeting her once. I and the rest of this family treasure this as this is the only known video recording of her.
