La Ho‘o-mana‘o O Kamehameha I

From the Images of Old Hawaii website

La Ho‘o-mana‘o O Kamehameha I (Day in Commemoration of Kamehameha I) was first proclaimed by Kamehameha V as a day to honor his grandfather, Kamehameha I, and was first celebrated on December 11, 1871 (Kamehameha V’s birthday.) It later changed to June 11 – it boils down to having a celebration when the weather is better (6-months from King Kamehameha V’s birthday.) The date does not have any direct connection to Kamehameha I. 65 more words
