“E kapu loa na hula.” 1874.

[Found under: “Nu Hou Kuloko.”]

Not at all in good taste were the Hawaiian hula people who went to dance in the evening of this past Monday,—with the sounding of the uli-uli, and the hands pointing this way and that, and their mouths puffing in the wind—These things done shame you, O Hawaii; these things are only fitting of pagans of the olden days—O Hawaii, don’t do bad upon yourselves! Severely prohibit the hula.

(Kuokoa, 3/21/1874, p. 3)
