E PUA ANA KA MAKANI🌬 🌬 🌬 1. E pua ana ka makani, lā ʻeā. I nā hala o Malelewaʻa.
2. Kui ʻia e Lūpua, lā ʻeā. Hāluʻa ʻala i ka poli.
3. Maikaʻi ka pua hīnano, lā ʻeā. Nā pua i Waialoha. 4. ʻUpu aʻe ana ka manaʻo, lā ʻeā. E ʻike ʻia Halāliʻi. 5. He aliʻi naʻu ke aloha, lā ʻeā. A he lei no kuʻu lani. 6. Haʻina mai ka puana, lā ʻeā. No Kaʻahumanu he inoa. He inoa no Kaʻahumanu 🌬🌬🌬 1. The wind is a blowing, tra la
Through the hala trees of Malelewa`a.

2. Strung together by the Lāpua breeze, tra la
To rest doubly fragrant on her chest.

3. Beautiful are the pandanus blossoms, tra la
That bloom at Waialoha.

4. A thought has come to me, tra la
To visit Halāliʻi.

5. Love, to me, is like royalty, tra la
A lei to adorn my chiefess.

6. This is my song's conclusion, tra la
In praise of Kaʻahumanu.

He inoa no Kaʻahumanu
After the death of Kamehameha, Kaʻahumanu became the wife of Kaumualiʻi, last ruler of Kauaʻi and Niʻihau. On a visit to the two islands mentioned here, this was composed to honor her.

Malelewaʻa and Waialoha are places on Kauaʻi and Halāliʻi is on Niʻihau.

In this image, Dr. Kenneth Emory, renowned Pacific anthropologist and advisor to the Polynesian Voyaging Society observes launching preparations for Hōkūleʻa on March 8, 1975. The Bishop Museum’s archaeology program emerged out of ethnographic and archaeological work conducted in the Hawaiian Islands and elsewhere in Polynesia by Dr. Emory.
Dr. Emory sits beside Sam Kaʻai, the master carver that created the canoeʻs two ki’is – a man and a woman. The female figure would be lashed to the port manu, the male ki’i to the starboard. When Kaʻai carved the male figure he fashioned his hands reaching up to the heavens in supplication.
These images and more can be found at the Hawaiian Historical Society as they were gifted to the Society by Mr. Joe Mullins in 1985, the image itself is credited to a Mr. Robert Goodman.

Inaugural launching ceremony for Hōkūleʻa on March 8, 1975 at Kualoa/Hakipuʻu at the Regional park on the island of Oʻahu. “I hope that all our children will keep on pursuing knowledge because none of us know where we are going, but at some point in our lives, that knowledge will allow us to jump off into the unknown, to take on new challenges, and that's what I consider before every one of these voyages...the challenge.

Learning is all about taking on a challenge, no matter what the outcome may be. When we accept the challenge we open ourselves to new insight and knowledge.

When we voyage, and I mean voyage anywhere, not just in canoes, but in our mind, new doors of knowledge will open. And that is what this voyage is all about. It's about taking on a challenge to learn. If we inspire even one of our children to do the same, then we will have succeeded.” [Excerpt from an interview with Nainoa Thompson, Pwo Navigator and crew member of Hōkūleʻa’s 1976 inaugural voyage.] These images and more can be found at the Hawaiian Historical Society as they were gifted to the Society by Mr. Joe Mullins in 1985, the image itself is credited to a Mr. Robert Goodman.

#LāKamehameha.#KamehamehaDay. #June11. [Honolulu Star Bulletin’s “Little Tales All About Hawaii.” By Clarice Taylor. June 4-7, 1949.] “Kamehameha Day, Its First Observance” “The first Kamehameha Day was observed June 11, 1872 in the last year of the reign of Kamehameha V, the last of the Kamehamehas. This year’s (1949) observance will be the 77th.
Just why June 11 was selected as La Hoomanao o Kamehameha I (Commemoration Day of Kamehameha I) will never be known, for it was not explained in the King’s proclamation of December 22, 1871.
Some surmised that Kamehameha V selected June 11 to forestall a general celebration of the American holiday, July 4.

Others thought the King desired Kamehameha Day to take the place of the old holiday, Restoration Day, which fell on July 31, the anniversary of the day in 1843 when Admiral Thomas restored the Hawaiian Kingdom after it was seized by the British.
John F.G. Stokes, who wrote a definitive article on Kamehameha Day for the July, 1935 issue of Paradise of the Pacific, surmises that the date was selected to provide a good summer’s day for horse racing.
This is highly probable, for the King issued his proclamation just 11 days after the festive celebration of his own birthday on December 11, 1871 with a grand horse racing card.
Other birthday celebrations had been marred by bad December weather, so a day in summer was the logical choice for a holiday to be celebrated with Hawaii’s favorite sport.
The first commemoration day, June 11, 1872, was carefully planned by a committee composed of Gov. John O. Dominis, chairman; Col. Kalakaua (later the King) secretary; J.A. Cummins, J.I. Dowsett, W.P. Wond, E.H. Boyd, and A.W. Judd, members.
The list of patrons included: C.R. Bishop and S.M. Damon.

On December 22, 1871, King Kamehameha V, Lot Kapuāiwa, proclaimed by royal decree that the eleventh day of June would henceforth be celebrated to honor his illustrious grandfather Kamehameha I, founder of the Hawaiian Kingdom.
In preparation for the first observance of the holiday, a royal command was printed in the newspaper “Ke Au ‘Oko‘a” on June 6, 1872.
MA KE KAUOHA. O KA POALUA, la 11 o Iune, ka La Hoomanao o KAMEHAMEHA I, e malamaia i La Kulaia, a e paniia na Keena Aupuni a pau. Ferd. W. Hutchison, Kuhina Kalaiaina.
BY AUTHORITY. Tuesday the 11th of June, the Day of Commemoration of Kamehameha I, will be observed as a Holiday, and all Government Offices will be closed. Ferd. W. Hutchison, Minister of the Interior.
That year, the first Kamehameha Day was celebrated in resplendent enthusiasm and aloha, with multiple programs being held throughout the islands.
On Maui, memorial-themed speeches were given during a holiday program and feast in Wailuku. In Lahaina, there was a gathering at which speeches, songs, and prayers were delivered. Following the formal program, the crowd made its way to Keawaiki for a day of festivities including boat races, mule races, sack races, swimming races, and a pig chase. There was even an event in which tins were filled with molasses, and competitors had to use their tongues to find a dollar buried inside.

On Saturday, June 17, Hōkūleʻa returns home to Hawaiʻi after a three-year voyage around the world.

When she sails into Magic Island, she will have sailed approximately 40,000 nautical miles, and shared stories of hope and inspiration directly with more than 100,000 people.

The culmination of the Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage, Hōkūleʻa’s historic return to Hawai‘i on June 17, 2017 will be celebrated at Magic Island, Oʻahu, with a cultural welcoming ceremony followed by an all-day grand celebration open to the entire community.


Today, June 6, in the year 1825, Kauikeaouli, age 11, is proclaimed King Kamehameha III under the regency of Kaʻahumanu. He will go on to be Hawaiʻi’s longest reigning monarch, ruling for 29 years. Kamehameha III gave to the Hawaiian Kingdom its first constitution in 1840, this codification of laws and rights follows less than fifty years after the creation of The Constitution of the United States.

Honuaʻula’s physical landscapes and seascapes are culturally embedded with meaning through various forms of storytelling. Moʻolelo (any informative discourse) that recount landscapes and seascapes remain significant because they continue to impart how the features of the land and sea were related to everyday life and the construction of a cultural memory. Pukui and Handy write,
"The physical environment, in its specific factors and phenomena, is also the material upon which and out of which the legendary drama… is wrought with the pattern of inherited traditional Polynesian lore. Shark, caterpillar, and gourd, certain rock formations, trees, volcanic and meteorological phenomena are kupuna (forebears) of particular families and persons: relationship, tabus, in fact every phase of personal and family life are contingent upon affinity arising here from." The authors go on to describe, "the legendary drama of their forebears must be pictured against the background of this natural setting, of which it was a part, and with which the folk identified it and were identified." Cultural memory is a pivotal aspect of ensuring the dominance of a particular interpretation of history. The staying power and authenticity of any given history depends on the collective majority’s ability to suppress competing memories contesting the dominant memory.
