Ahahui Mamakakaua forms, 1917.


“Love your neighbor as yourself and let the old and young go unmolested on the highway,” is the motto of a new society to be known as the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors, which has just filed its papers with the registrar of public accounts.

Those who have signed as charter members are Alice K. Macfarlane, Martha Dowsett, Eugenia K. Reis, Annie Conradt, and Mauriel Shingle [Muriel Campbell Shingle].

The oath of the society is as follows: “In consideration of the sacred rights of our ancestors every member must bear in mind, uphold and cherish all the rights of the society.”

All members are requested to collect old Hawaiian war relics, such as laumeki or javelin, the pahoa or dagger, the laau palua [laau palau] or war club, the pololu or war spear, the laau kaa or baton of a drum major, the maa or sling and the ikoi or mystery stone which hung over doorways and struck dead all enemies who attempted to enter a house protected by it. In addition the members must collect kahilis or feather standards, helmets, leis, talismans and pieces of ancient kapa cloth.

The society emblem is the coat of arms of Lani-Alii Okinapauokalani, with all her sacred rights.
