Opposition to Hula in West Coast of the U. S., 1916.

Opposition to Hawaiian Hula in the West.

A. P. Taylor, the Secretary of the Promotion Committee of Hawaii, received a letter from J. Walter Scott, the representative of the Promotion Committee on the West Coast of America, speaking of their preparations to oppose Hawaiian Hula.

Here is what was said in the letter: “The kind of hula that we are witnessing here, it is not according to what is wanted, and is something that has become abhorred. This is what I think: For the honor of the Islands of Paradise, and for its good name, we rise as one to obliterate for good that act from amongst us.

We will begin this opposition immediately, and I trust it will move forward in no time.

Duke Kahanamoku and Hui Nalu to San Francisco, 1913.

Not Enough Money to Send Kahanamoku

The swimmers of the Hui Nalu received and invitation from San Francisco to go to the Portola show to be held in San Francisco, and that they arrive one week prior to the when the event will be held, so that they have time to enjoy and practice ahead.

This invitation was received by the Promotion Committee on the eve of this past Thursday by way of wireless telegraph, requesting that the boys of the Hui Nalu board the steamship Ventura on the 3rd of October instead of them waiting until the 8th.

There are many boys of the Hui Nalu who want to fulfill this invitation, however, some of them must work, and it seems that there are only a few of them that might be able to oblige.

One big obstruction faced by Kahanamoku and his teammates in going, is the lack of funds in their account, and so the fund-raising committee wants to raise two-hundred dollars, which would be sufficient for the travel expenses for the Hawaii boys. The committee is determined to raise those funds before the 8th of October, and to put the Hawaii boys aboard the steamship Wilhelmina so that they will have a lot of time before the Portola Festival [Oct. 22–25, 1913] in San Francisco, on the 22nd of October.
