Maori visitors, 1920.


Visiting Maoris were entertained at the armory last night by a number of Hawaiians. The main assembly was well filled and a number of townspeople crowded the galleries. The visitors will be entertained again tonight by Princess Kawananakoa and Wednesday by the Daughters of Hawaii.

The guests chanted to their hosts and in turn Hawaiians sang, led by Mrs. Kamaka Stillman and Mrs. Mary Padaken. Speeches of welcome were made in Hawaiian and English by Rev. Akaiko Akana and Judge Sanford B. Dole, respectively. Band and stringed music completed an enjoyable program.

Hawaiian societies present in full regalia included the Kaahumanu, the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors, the Hale o na Alii, the Hui Oiwi and the Poola. The reception committee was composed of Princess Kalanianaole, Princess Kawananakoa, Mrs Irene Holloway, Mrs. Fred Macfarlane, Mrs. Lahilahi Webb, Miss Lucy Peabody, Rev. Akaiko Akana, Eli J. Crawford, Gerrit P. Wilder, Judge WIlliam H. Heen and Joseph Emerson.
