Patriots celebrate La Hoihoi Ea in lands afar! 1862.

[For the Kuokoa.]

Hoihoi Ea Banquet

FOR THE HAWAIIAN NATION, ON THE 31st OF JULY, 1862.

The 31st of July is a day celebrated by the Hawaiian Nation because it is the day on which the sovereignty of the land was restored, from the year 1843 until this year in which it is remembered. Therefore, we, the natives of Hawaii who live in this strange land, because of our aloha for our land of birth, make this a day of remembrance and a day of prayer, setting aside our labors.

This is what was done on that day: Before that day, food was purchased, and in the morning of that day, the food was cooked first, and all the food was assembled on a table that was covered with the green foliage of the Puluki;¹ and when the conch was sounded, the fellow diners came and sat upon their own seats. Then L. H. Kapuaa stood and spoke of the nature of activities of the day; before the singing. This is one of the songs composed by the youths of the Snow Flurry [na keiki o ka Ehu Hau]. This is it below.

  1. Aloha i ka aina,
    I ke one hanau,
    O ke ao lewa he inoa,
    O ka Haku ka Moi,
    Na keiki kamaaina,
    Na pua ala mau,
    Ua hoihoi mai ka ea,
    Kau  hou ka Hae Hawaii.
    .
  2. Nolaila e na hoa,
    E ku a mele pu,
    Hauoli like kakou,
    Ma keia waoakua,
    Ua nui na la i hala,
    Aole kakou i hoomanao,
    Ua hoihoi mai ka ea,
    Kau hou ka Hae Hawaii.
    .
  3. O Thomas ka mama,
    Ma na ale o ke kai,
    A hiki ma Hawaii,
    Kuka me ka Moi,
    Me na Luna Aupuni,
    Holo ke kuikahi,
    Ua hoihoi mai ka ea,
    Kau hou ka Hae Hawaii.
    .
  4. Hoopauia o Lokeoki,
    Hoi nele aku ia,
    Ka moana Pakipika,
    Hauoli Hawaii,
    I ka la hope o Iulai,
    Ala ae kakou,
    Ua hoihoi mai ka ea,
    Kau hou ka Hae Hawaii.
    .
  5. E ala e na keiki,
    O ka Ehu Hau,
    Mele me ka hauoli,
    Hoonani ke Akua,
    Nana kokua mai,
    Ka ea o ka aina,
    Ua hoihoi mai ke ea,
    Kau hou ka Hae Hawaii.

A MARVELOUS THING OF NO EQUAL!

This past Monday the flag pole of Mr. and Mrs. Kamakaia was raised by the deft work of Sam Kaloa, and it stands with great honor. There are 30 or more flag poles have the honor of being made and put up by our friend, awaiting the day that the wondrous song will be sung— Continue reading

My Hawaiian Flag, 1913.

This is one of my more favorite of newspaper mastheads. Kuu Hae Hawaii was a short-lived weekly that began on April 19, 1913 and the last extant copy is from July 4, 1913. It was headed by J. A. Akina, Manager; W. K. Poai, Secretary; and L. K. Kakani, Editor.

I wonder if any of these golden Hawaiian flag badges still survive, 1893.

GOLDEN HAWAIIAN FLAGS.

We saw beautiful new Golden Hawaiian Flags at the jewelry store of Mr. T. Linday [Lindsay], on Fort Street, upland of the store of Mr. McInerny [Mr. Makinane]. It is most beautiful and reasonable in price. O those of Patriotic hearts, you must go get one at once, lest they run out first, for there are not many.
