On kake and Kauikeaouli and Kalama and Kaahumanu, 1896.

KAHALEULUHE

5.—Kahaleuluhe was where the Anglican Church stands today, and its stature is hard to picture today. This was a Royal residence during the time of Kamehameha III, the kindhearted Alii who was shown affection through words of kake, because of the fear Kalama had lest she be killed by Kaahumanu and Kinau, and these are the old words: “No’u o luna, no’u o lalo, no’u o uka, no’u o kai, no’u o na wahi o pau o loa.” Kauikeaouli gave this house lot here in Honolulu to the Lion Nation of Britain, and it is by that authority that the Church now stands there, and it was renamed Pelekane.

[Did you see today’s Bishop Museum Welo Hou post? It talks more about the story between Kauikeaouli and Kalama! Click here to check it out!

The column in which appears the description above further talks about other places in Honolulu past that already did not exist in 1896.]
