Luke Kanakaole weds Edith Kanaele, 1933.

Luke Kanakaole was joined together in the sacred bond of marriage with Miss Edith Kanaele, of Keaukaha. Marriage is a splendid thing.

[After attending the awesome symposium this past week, Words in the World: Literatures, Oratures, and New Meeting Grounds, it was serendipity that I just came across this marriage announcement for the famous chanter and hula practitioner, as well as mother of one of the esteemed mele panel presenters, Pualani Kanakaole Kanahele!

There is so much available in the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers, if only we bothered to look. Although it wouldn’t hurt if there were clear images online and they were accurately word searchable.]
