PA-U PARADE ON MONDAY
The Riders Expect to Have a Very Big Turnout.
The Association of Pa-u Riders, otherwise known as the Hui Holopa-u Maile Alii, is making great preparations for its parade of Pa-u riders on Monday, June 11. This society formed by Mrs. Kaimana [Kainana] Puahi and others interested in the preservation of the old Hawaiian manner of horseback riding with the picturesque pa-u immediately following the floral parade of Washington’s birthday, of which parade the pa-u riders formed one of the most attractive features. The ladies have since devoted much time to practice, and to the making of appropriate dresses, and have been helped by the members of the Promotion Committee, by Manager Charles Crane of the Hawaiian Gazette Co. and by many others, to all of whom the members of the Hui Holopa-u Maile Alii wish to return their most sincere thanks.
OBSERVATIONS OF THE DAY.
The program for the day is most complete. At 6:30 in the morning, the members of the hui will meet at the Waikiki residence of Mrs. Puahi, at which time all will don the pa-u. At eight o’clock the line will begin to form, Sheriff A. M. Brown being the marshal of the parade. At 8:30 the procession will move to the Kapahulu road, thence to Beretania street, thence to Washington place. Continue reading
PA-U RIDERS HONOR DAY
Picturesque Cavalcade Revives Old-Time Custom.
The Hui Holopa-u Maile Alii have every reason to be satisfied with their first parade as a society, which occurred yesterday in celebration of Kamehameha Day.
The custom of pa-u riding is an old and kingly one and it was eminently fitting that the initial gathering of the club should take place on the anniversary of the birth of Hawaii’s greatest king.
About 30 riders gathered at the residence of Mrs. Kainana Puahi at Waikiki early yesterday morning. The costumes, which were uniform, consisted of yellow skirts, white waists, and straw hats encircled with ilima leis. Each rider wore a black ribbon as a sash, bearing the word “Kaonohiokala,” done in gold. The word means “the eye of the sun.” Continue reading

THE DAY WAS CELEBRATED BY HAWAIIANS, THE HAOLE, THE LOCALS, AND THE NEWCOMERS, WITH THE THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BECOME A NATIONAL HOLIDAY IN THE FUTURE.
KALAKAUA’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATED.
For the first time, a commemoration of the birthday of King Kalakaua held extensively here in this city yesterday; this day will be celebrated in the future as is the birthday of the Conqueror of the Nation, Kamehameha.
In years past, there were but a very few people who celebrated this day, but from now on, the birthday of Kalakaua will be a day that is important in the history of Hawaii nei.
The activity taking place on the first celebration was the pa-u riding of twenty-one women of the Kaohelelani Pa-u Riders presided over by Mrs. Theresa Wilcox Belliveau. Continue reading
