NEW HAWAIIAN SOCIETY FORMED

“Love your neighbor as yourself and let the old and young go unmolested on the highway,” is the motto of a new society to be known as the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors, which has just filed its papers with the registrar of public accounts.

Those who have signed as charter members are Alice K. Macfarlane, Martha Dowsett, Eugenia K. Reis, Annie Conradt, and Mauriel Shingle [Muriel Campbell Shingle].

The oath of the society is as follows: “In consideration of the sacred rights of our ancestors every member must bear in mind, uphold and cherish all the rights of the society.”

All members are requested to collect old Hawaiian war relics, such as laumeki or javelin, the pahoa or dagger, the laau palua [laau palau] or war club, the pololu or war spear, the laau kaa or baton of a drum major, the maa or sling and the ikoi or mystery stone which hung over doorways and struck dead all enemies who attempted to enter a house protected by it. In addition the members must collect kahilis or feather standards, helmets, leis, talismans and pieces of ancient kapa cloth.

The society emblem is the coat of arms of Lani-Alii Okinapauokalani, with all her sacred rights.

Kalanianaole’s funeral, and just because you can’t find something online doesn’t mean it does not exist, 1922.

The coffin of Prince Kalanianaole being pulled by the Stevedores, while they march on King Street for the uplands of of the royal mausoleum at Maunaala. Below is part of the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors [Ahahui o na Mamakakaua].

[These images are found on a page not available online. They appear in the second section of the Kuokoa (six pages total) that is totally missing from the online images. This is but one example of the coverage of the funeral. I have seen cases where pages were dropped out from the online images before, but I wonder how often total sections are left out.]

A NAME SONG FOR THE MAMAKAKAUA ASSOCIATION.

I

E na koa o Kamehameha,
E na Mamala hoa,
Nana i na’i na Moku;
Mai Hawaii a Kauai,
Honolulu ke Kaona Nui,
One kapu o Lolani,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

II

I kaua wiwo ole ia,
I na pali o Nuuanu.
I ke Kawelu o Lanihuli,
Huli hoi ua lanakila.
Hoolai na pololu,
A Hawaii nui a Keawe,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

III

Aia i ke kuahiwi,
I ka lau o ka Maile,
Aia i ke awaawa;
I ka nu’a o ka palai,
I ka wai paieie,
Ne a ke awapuhi,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

IV

Aia la i ka uka,
Hale o Kahalaopuna,
I na pali ku haaheo;
I ke ehu anuenue.
I ka wai a Kanaloa,
Wai ono a na manu,
Aia ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

Composed by MARYZANE [MARYJANE] KULANI MONTANO.

[This composition is by the same composer who wrote the lyrics to songs like “Old Plantation”. This here describes the mele as a inoa [name song] for the Ahahui o na Mamakakaua, or the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors. I just wanted this to be findable online, so here it is without any English gloss…]
