Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole and the Ahahui Kamehameha, 1922.

THE HEAVENLY ONE, CHIEF JONAH KUHIO KALANIANAOLE AND THE AHAHUI KAMEHAMEHA.

With the departing of this life by the Heavenly One, Alii Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole as his spirit glided off to the world of eternal rest, he left behind monuments for the Hawaiian lahui to remember for many years to come.

During his lifetime, over the many years gone by, his good and upright character was always seen through the works that he carried out for the good of all. It is something familiar to all that knew him.

One of the monuments he left behind is the Ahahui Kamehameha. Continue reading

Rev. Robert Stewart McArthur rails on the monarchy, 1895.

M’ARTHUR ON HAWAII.

Kalakaua and Liliuokalani Responsible for Heathenism.

CONVERTS AMONG THE NATIVES.

Great Hopes for the Hawaiians Now that They Are in the Enjoyment of a Pure and Free Government—Officers of State are Especially Praised.

NEW YORK, Dec. 2.—The Rev. Robert Stewart McArthur delivered a sermon in the Calvary Baptist church last night on “The Responsibility of Kalakaua and Liliuokalani.”

After referring to the characteristics of the Hawaiians he quoted figures to show the falling off in the number of Christian converts among the natives since the reign of Kamehameha V, who removed all restraint from the Hula masters and Kahuna influence and thereby sided the spread of idolatry.

Royal Order of Kamehameha: the early days, 1903.

The Secret Society of the True Natives.

On the 11th of this month, on the day of Ka Na’i Aupuni [Kamehameha Day], a number of native youths established a secret society called “Kamehameha Order”. There are many respected Hawaiians who joined this association, and Prince Kalanianaole is the head of this group.

It is stated that this association will be spread across this Archipelago, and native Hawaiians will be allowed to join, should they be fitting.

One of their major functions will be trying to search out and to care for things from times of old, and the designating of the storied places [wahi pana] all over these islands.

Currently, there is a Historical Society [Ahahui Moolelo o ke Au Kahiko]¹, and they have a lot, but the oiwi Hawaii themselves must do something so that the famed ones of times past will live on, and also to foster things that will let the name of Hawaii live on in perpetuity.
