Memorial Day past, 1902.

Honoring Alii

In the early morning of this past memorial day [la kau pua], Prince David Kawananakoa and his friends glided quietly up to the grave of our Alii.

As he entered, he placed flowers and beautiful lei upon the coffins there. It is good that he honored them, and we believe this to be aloha for the alii. We are with him in his actions.

[Let us not remember those who we aloha just on this one day of the year…]

(Kuokoa, 6/6/1902, p. 2)
