Hula at Queen Emma’s birthday celebration, 1875.

[Found under: “Nu Hou Kuloko.”]

Birthday of Queen Emma.—This past Saturday, Queen Emma Kaleleonalani observed her birthday at her Residence, and there were many people who went to watch the entertainment of the day and to indulge in all the food from the great Table filled through her generosity;

the people ate extravagantly. Following the meal, there were many Hawaiian hula performed in front of a full crowd; and because of this the lanai of Rooke House broke with the people daring atop to look down to watch the hula people dancing.
