Kaleimamahu’s ahuula, 1882.

[Found under: “HAWAII NEWS”]

The feather cape of Kaleimamahu which was inherited by the queen, Hakaleleponi, and then to the alii father, C. Kanaina, was purchased at auction by the Government for $1,200.

[Anyone know what became of this ahuula?]

(Ko Hawaii Pae Aina, 8/5/1882, p. 3)

  1. The cloak was actually $1000, with the other $200 was for portraits of Lunalilo and Kekaululohi. Portraits which are now in Iolani Palace. I suspect the cloak was in the Government Museum. The Daily Bulletin comments on April 5, 1892 that objects from that museum were being stored in the new Bishop Museum. Maybe the cloak is there.
