Announcing the first Kamehameha Day, 1872.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

National Holiday.–According to the spokesman of the nation [Ke Au Okoa], seen under the heading, “By Order,” was proclaimed the word of the king that the 11th of June every year will be observed as a national holiday to memorialize Kamehameha I, the King who unified the kingdom into one. It is not known whether it is his birthday, or whether it is the day that the islands of Hawaii were united under his rule. Time will clear up the confusion.
