THE PRESENTATION AT KAPIOLANI PARK ABOUT LONOIKAMAKAHIKI AND KAIKILANI WAS BEAUTIFUL

(4) The Chiefs and Attendants in the Procession. (5) Queen Liliuokalani, and Her Companions watching the Performance. (6) The Attendants of Queen Kaikilani. (7) The Retainers of Queen Kaikilani.

HEARD WERE THE PRAISES FOR THE PRESENTATION OF KING LONOIKAMAKAHIKI

Before a large audience of malihini and kamaaina as well, some scenes of the kings of ancient Hawaii nei was shown, outside of Kapiolani Park, which opened the eyes of all at some of the scenes which they shall not forget for a long time after this.

It was a presentation about the Chief Lonoikamakahiki and Kaikilani, the queen of Puna. Lonoikamakahiki left his kingdom out of jealousy for his queen Kaikilani; while he was staying with Kakuhihewa, the Chief of Oahu nei at Kailua, Koolaupoko, Kaikilani arrived, and they were reunited once more through a mele, and the past antagonistic feelings were put aside.

That scene of the reuniting of King Lonoikamakahiki and Kaikilani, was what was shown at Kapiolani Park, just as the story that is memorized of that ancient time of Hawaii nei.

From what is understood, a hundred and fifty people were a part of that presentation, with their various costumes, along with their roles and rank.

Queen Liliuokalani was there to take in the sights, along with a great number of Hawaiians there to watch the performance that was very  much about this lahui of the olden times.

It seemed that the the sights were something the malihini were much interested in seeing, and that they will show them to their friends because they were well equipped with cameras.

It all went well, with high praises going to those who organized the activity.
