Honoring Price Kuhio

Prince Kuhio Day on March 26 celebrates the life and legacy of Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole. Prince Kuhio was a member of Hawaiian royalty and next in line for the throne when Queen Liliuokalani was overthrown. Rather than abandon his royal status, Prince Kuhio worked hard to ensure the future success of the Hawaiian people. He is remembered to this day for his unwavering support of his people in times of both peace and unrest.

Born on the island of Kauai, Kuhio was orphaned at the age of 13 and adopted by Queen Kapiolani and her husband, King David Kalakaua. His education consisted of the Royal School and Punahou School on Oahu. Two years after the overthrow of Queen Liliuokalani, 25-year-old Kuhio participated in a rebellion that resulted in a prison sentence of one year. Upon his release, he married his fiancée, Elizabeth Kahanu Ka’auwai, and set off to travel around Europe and America.

Returning to the recently annexed state of Hawaii, Prince Kuhio pursued a career in politics. It was as a member of Congress that he made his greatest impact on Hawaii. Prince Kuhio served as Hawaii’s representative in Congress from 1903 until his death in 1922. His most lasting contribution came in the form of the Hawaiian Homes Act of 1920, which provided native Hawaiians land upon which to build homes and live.

The statue of the Prince, cemented in Waikiki in 2002, forever enshrined the ideals that he stood for. His unwavering support for the perpetuation of Hawaiian culture and protection of Hawaiian people earned him the title, “Prince of the People.” On the state holiday of Kuhio Day, the state of Hawaii recognizes the role Prince Kuhio played in securing a prosperous future for the Hawaiian people.
