A Pueo Stands Sentry

There is a very special pueo, Hawaiian owl, standing sentry for cancer patients in Nu’uanu. Carved from Hawaiian bluestone by sculptor C.W. Watson, it stands 6 feet high on the campus of the American Cancer Society. Just before his death from prostate cancer in 1998, the late Monsignor Charles Kekumano asked for the owl as a protector for cancer patients. His dear friend, Gladys Brandt, initiated the funding to bring his wish to life.
