Hula Critique, 1875.

Hula of Haena.

O Lahui Hawaii; Aloha to you:—

While living here in the village of Haena, gazing at the cliff faces of Makana, and enjoying the softly blowing winds of the land, and reveling in the leaves of the kawelu grass; what I am fond of is the beautifully breaking waves, those companion waves which Lohiau surfed in days past, in our old stories. Then I see men, women, and children of this unfamiliar land in which I live, parading to the hula house. How dismaying! O Haena—don’t agonize, but think. Time now has moved forward, and here you are reverting backwards, and stumbling at Kanapo[?]. Here we are, the devout, seeing how truly horrifying the hula is of the people here who are going in droves down into the whirlpool, just as the saying goes, “Kohala is crowded to the very opening.” As soon as the assembly conch is blown, they run and disappear.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” [Mataio 11:28] And look at James 5:5. Therefore I am concerned over what was said by the prophet, Ezekiel 33:3–5. Look to this teaching.

With aloha,
D. P. Puniawa,
Haena, Kauai, Oct. 11, 1875.

Monument to Kamehameha III planned by Daughters of Hawaii, 1911.

Monument Planned

Daughters of Hawaii Plan to Build Monument to Kamehameha III

In a meeting held by the Daughters of Hawaii at the residence of Mrs. L. A. Coney, on Richards Street last week, to think over the subject of building a monument to the alii, Kamehameha III, at Keauhou, Kona, Hawaii; it was undertaken and considered with much enthusiasm by all members present.

The place mentioned above for the building of monument is currently upon lands of the Bishop Estate, and is a very good area desired for that planned project. The ladies named below were chosen as a committee to decide the kind of monument that would be appropriate to be built at that place.

Another subject on the agenda of that meeting was the considering of a proper name for the park in Nuuanu, the first home of Queen Emma Kaleleonalani, and they decided that the park would be called “Emalani Park,” after Queen Emma. Mrs. Ellen Weaver was the committee chosen to go to meet with the Chief Executive Officer of the Campbell Estate. The last subject of that meeting was the decision to send letters of sympathy to Mrs. Nakuina for the passing of her loved ones, her husband and their daughter; with consideration of other small organization business—the presentation by the regents of their annual reports, and as a result of these presentations, the remaining funds of the organization was made clear.
