Kapu on Queen Liliuokalani’s ocean at Hamohamo, 1906.

Proclamation of Prohibition!

ANNOUNCING so that all may hear who go swimming or fishing perhaps at the Sea of Hamohamo at Waikiki Kai, Honolulu, Oahu; Queen Liliuokalani prohibits: There is to be no collecting of Pakeleawaa Seaweed, and Huluhuluwaena Seaweed, Opihi, Alealea Shellfish, Ina, Haueue [Haukeuke], and Pipipi, facing the front of the Royal Yard [Pa Alii]. It was her very own Royal hands which planted and fostered all of those things mentioned above, and those who take these Restricted things will be arrested and punished by the law. All of these things planted by the Queen, some were brought from Hilo, and some from Lahaina, some from Molokai, some from Kauai, and some were from here in Waialua, Oahu.

Heed this Restriction.

J. O. Carter, Agent.

Honolulu, T. H., Mar. 1, 1906.

One thought on “Kapu on Queen Liliuokalani’s ocean at Hamohamo, 1906.

  1. Interesting article, it follows the same manaʻo of a previous article from 1895 written by an agent named Auwae, on fishing rights, again in Hamohamo, Waikīkī. All fascinating to know, I didn’t realize Queen Liliʻuokalani retained rights to “hoʻokapu” at this point. Mahalo a nui for sharing.
