More about the Na’i Aupuni Association, 1925.

Marching Drill Unit of the Ahahui Na’i Aupuni.

In Phoenix Hall, at half past seven on this Saturday night, the Na’i Aupuni Association will hold a play and dance, and the profits from this endeavor will go to the association.

Also shown on that night will be marching with ihe [spears] by the members of the association under the direction of a woman. The drill commands will all be in the old language—the language spoken during the monarchy, by their war leaders.

A prize of ten dollars will be awarded to the one who knows the correct name of the spear, along with the explanation of the true circumstances under which the spear was made.  Tickets are available at the door on that night, or directly from the members of the ticket selling committee.
