Nā Kau a Kau (Oli)
by: Na Pumehana Silva me Melelani Spencer
|Look to the uplands and to the sea
and all around Honouliuli.
It is an admirable view.
In the enlightenment of this time
we will navigate the path of seeking knowledge.
We will move forward with pride,
generosity, and gratitude,
so that life continues
for all time.
And we arrive.
Composed by Wayne R. “Doc” Wilson, with lyrics by Doc and Cami Nihipali.
Hail Navigators! Oh, we sing to silver, blue, and gold.
Na ho’okele going forth to the future, prepared and bold.
I mua me ka ha’aheo for our Hawai’i nei.
With excellence in all we do. We are IPA.
Hail Navigators! Journey on and feel the humble pride,
Open hearts and open minds that help us grow inside.
The sea may rise and waves may roll and some have lost their way.
Helping others helps us lead, yes, we are IPA.
