More on the denied marriage in Utah, 1902.

Peter Kaluna is the name of the Hawaiian denied marrying a haole girl in the state of Utah. It is believed that the two are in love with each other.

How sad it must be to be denied marriage to someone you love, 1902/2012.

THE yellow-skinned races (Mongolian), include the Chinese and Japanese, and not other lahui. The Hawaiian Race is of the Malae race (the brown-skinned), and if the Hawaiians are Malae, then they are not yellow-skinned, or Chinese. And yet, under the law of the state o Utah, haole are not allowed to marry Chinese (yellow-skins), and it is believed that Hawaiians (Malae) are included amongst the Chinese. This is perhaps a mistake, and that state of the United States needs to be educated of the nation in which you live as a Territory. And if they are mistaken about you, O Hawaii, this error is incredibly long standing. This is the first state to which Hawaiians were brought by the Mormon Faith to live, and they are still there to this day; but because of this continued misunderstanding, it is as if they do not know the nature of Hawaiians. The Kiai questions and asks, “Where in Utah are Hawaiians being taken? If we are not mistaken, and according to what is reported, they are perhaps in the desert, where they are hidden away.” Reveal yourself to be an American today!

Commission carrying the anti-annexation petitions, 1897.


We have just seen in the newspaper the “Call” of San Francisco, portraits of the Representatives of the Lahui which were published in that newspaper, with appreciation and delight. Looking closely at all four of their portraits, they each appear fine and dignified, as if those are truly them from top to bottom; there is nothing for the eye to criticize. Also, that newspaper reports of their safe arrival, as well as a conversation of some of the Representatives with a reporter of the newspaper about annexation.

On their sides are portraits of Senators R. F. Pettigrew and Dubois, and both of their stories, from their arrival in Honolulu on the way to Japan, all the way to their return to America. Both of them are true friends to the Hawaiian, wherever they went and came in contact with our native people, but it will be the Senate that will confirm the truth of the words they planted in the hearts of the true Hawaiian people; we hope that the true outcome of their efforts for the good of the land, the people, and the Monarchy arises, and may God in His endless patience bolster their endeavors and progress, so that the journey of our Representatives is helped along. Let Hawaii live forever.
