S. M. Kamakau on Capt. James Cook, 1867.

[Found under: “Ia Ioane Kaimiola.”]

If we consider the history of Captain Cook from the start to the end, I do not come out with a flawless name or a good name for him. If there is built a Memorial to Kalanimanookahoowaha for his killing of the destructive scamp Captain Cook, that would be something most appropriate.

[This is from a  lengthy detailed response to a critique by Ioane Kaimiola (“S. M. Kamakau.” in Au Okoa, 3/18/1867, p. 1) of Kamakau’s portrayal of Cook.]

(Kuokoa, 4/6/1867, p. 4)
