Lunalilo’s Crypt overgrown by weeds? 1894.

It is painful to see the cemetery of King Lunalilo at Kawaiahao, showing that it is not remembered, for it is overgrown by weeds. In its wealth, the crypt where his body is laid to rest was left to waste by his Trustees, along with Wile Kamika [William Owen Smith] who feasts off of his pay from the trust. This is proof of the missionary descendents’ [welo mikanele] contempt for the Alii of Hawaii, the people who made them wealthy and also their parents and grandparents.
