Calendar done to the specifications of the Hale Naua made by Joseph Liwai Kukahi, 1896.

[Found under: “NUHOU HAWAII”]

The Makaainana newspaper gave its readers the gift of a Calender for this year, prepared by Mr. J. Liwai Kukahi. He followed the organization of the names of the months by the reckoning of the Hale Naua, and so too with the days, they are according to the names of the nights. This is a good Calendar for farmers and fishermen amongst the Hawaiian lahui.

[This is something that I wish was still around for us to see. It is only rarely that you will find still one of these single sheet gifts from the newspaper. Probably because they got pinned to a wall for actual use. Has anyone seen a copy of this?

The only single sheet calendar gifted by a newspaper that I know of still existing is the 1906 Aloha Aina calendar.]
