There have been more than 225 letters written by 42 different ali‘i, or high ranking Hawaiians, between 1820 and 1907. These letters have been digitized, transcribed, translated and annotated by interns under the direction of Dr. Puakea Nogelmeier, Executive Director of the Awaiaulu Foundation. These words from the ali‘i themselves give us a remarkable lens through which we can view nineteenth century life in our islands.
Prior to the presentation, the Alumni Relations Office will host a meet and greet with Dr. Woods, Dr. Nogelmeier, Dr. Lyon and the Awaiaulu interns.
Register for meet and greet by visiting our event registration page.
The Ka‘iwakīloumoku-Cultural Events Series presentation will then occur in Ululani Hale from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. (see flyer below)

In March 2017, Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi High School will present two musical plays written by local teacher, choral director, and playwright Clarence Waipa. Almost a King portrays the events of the final years of Prince Leleiōhoku, the younger brother of Liliʻuokalani, and heir to the throne. Kaʻiulani recounts the childhood and premature demise of Princess Kaʻiulani. Both plays were written by Waipa while he was a teacher at St. Josephʻs School in Hilo, and were performed by students. Music for both plays include music of the time period and original compositions by Waipa.
The combined plays have been given the title Ka ʻIu O Hoku, by KSH junior Kuʻuhiapo Jeong. In English it is roughly translated “the highest of the star/ the sky”. Both Kaʻiulani and Leleiōhoku were viewed as the highest and most important people at that time (when the Hawaiian Kingdom was at the brick of annexation) as heirs to the throne. The title also cleverly combines their two names.
The plays will be presented Thursday, March 16 and Friday, March 17 at Koaiʻa Gymnasium, featuring the entire high school student body.
