An adornment for Prince Kuhio by Mrs. Annie Freitas, 1922.

HE WEHI ALOHA NO KALANIANAOLE.

Ka onohi momi a o Hawaii nei.

He mea nui oe na ka lahui,
Milimili na ka Ua Kukalahale.

Ua ku’i e ka lono puni na moku,
O Kalanianaole ua hele loa.

Aia paha oe i Amerika,
I ka uluwehi a o Wakinekona.

Ua kohoia oe e ka lahui,
I wahaolelo no Hawaii.

Kakooia e ka ili keokeo,

O ka bila hoopulapula ua lanakila.

Lanakila Hawaii a mau loa,
Ma kau mau hana pono e Kalani.

E o mai e Kalanianaole,
Ka elele hanohano a ka lahui.

Hainaia mai ana ka puana,
Ke Aliiaimoku makaainana.

Hakuia e MRS. ANNIE FREITAS.

[A LOVING ADORNMENT FOR KALANIANAOLE.

A name song for you, Kalanianaole,
A set pearl of Hawaii nei.

You are important to the lahui,
Beloved one of the Kukalahale Rain.

The news spread across the islands,
Kalanianaole went afar.

Perhaps you are in America,
In the verdure of Washington.

You were chosen by the lahui,
As a spokesman for Hawaii.

Supported by the white skins,
You were on the Republican ballot.

You were sent to Washington,
As an illustrious representative for Hawaii.

Seeking equal rights,
In the senate of the legislature.

Shown in the newspapers,
The rehabilitation bill* was victorious.

Hawaii won for all times,
Through your good works, O Chief.

Answer, O Kalanianaole,
The noble representative of the lahui.

Let the story be told,
The people’s chief.

Composed by MRS. ANNIE FREITAS.

1315 Miller St., Honolulu.]

*The Rehabilitation Bill was later known as Hawaiian Homes Commission Act.
