Kaiulani’s birthday, 1890.

Birthday of Kaiulani

This Thursday, October 16th, Her Highness, the Alii, Princess Victoria Kawekiu Kaiulani Lunalilo Kalaninuiahi Lapalapa, made fifteen years of age. Although the young alii whose birthday it is, is in England in pursuit of education, we hear that the Women’s Horse Riding Association of Liliuokalani commemorated this day by parading on horseback in pa-u, on the morning of the birthday; and that afternoon, there was a great celebratory feast set at Kalaepohaku under the auspices of Mr. William Auld, to celebrate the birthday of this young Princess of Hawaii nei. And we wish [ke puaaenei makou?] that the young alii’s search for education in foreign lands progresses, and her days are lengthened with ease until her return to her homeland amongst her people [mawena o ko lakou mau makaainana?]!
