Prince Kūhiō Day is an official holiday in the state of Hawaiʻi in the United States.[1] It is celebrated annually on March 26, to mark the birth of Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole — heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi, prince of the House of Kalākaua, and later territorial delegate to the United States Congress.[2] It was established in 1949 by the legislature of the Territory of Hawaii.[3]

As a delegate, Kuhio authored the first Hawaii Statehood bill in 1919. He also won passage of the Hawaiian Homes Act, creating the Hawaiian Homes Commission and setting aside 200,000 acres (810 km2) of land for Hawaiian homesteaders.

Prince Kūhiō Day is one of only two holidays in the United States dedicated to royalty, the other being Hawaiʻi’s King Kamehameha Day on June 11.[1

North Shores

North facing Shores are 2 to 4 feet with possible 7 foot faces and then it will be declining until Monday where there will be another good size wall coming in at 6 to 10 feet possible 18 foot faces so that’s for experience surfers only

West Side

On the west side it’s going to be 3 to 5 which means you may see about a 9 foot face wave coming through on the west side of these islands and on Monday crank it up just a notch we just might get on up to 5 to 8, which means 8 to 14 foot faces on the west facing shores

South Shores

Pretty calm and steady on the south Shores flap to a foot possibly a half foot or more maybe 1.5 OK will call the possible 3 foot face coming through that wouldn’t be so bad OK South Shores are looking beautiful especially since we have all these Malahini coming into to town. Remember to be safe out there in the ocean even if the waves don’t look that big and they’re just 1. 5 feet or 3 foot faces.

East Side

On the east side it’s holding at 2 to 3 which means you’ll see the occasional 5 foot face rolling through on the east side of these islands

The brothers demonstrated the Hawaiian sport of board surfing to the locals, becoming the first California surfers in 1885.[12] In September 1890, Kawānanakoa and Kūhiō became the first surfers in the British Isles and taught their English tutor John Wrightson to surf on the beaches of Bridlington in northern England.[13][14][15]

As you know, April 8, there will be a full solar eclipse that will race diagonal from the southwest to the north east across the Pacific Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio and Newfoundland. But what will you be able to see here in Hawaii on April 8? Will it be a total solar eclipse. Unfortunately, the solar eclipse begins at 6:52 PM, which is close to sunset ….and by 9 PM it will be complete, but you won’t be missing much as it’s not a complete solar eclipse in fact, if you were to look at the sun as a cookie, and you were to take just a small bite out of the corner that bite mark would be the eclipse that people in Hawaii will be able to see https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/@5855811?iso=20240408


Micro Moon and Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2024When the Sun, Earth, and Moon almost perfectly align on March 25 at 07:00 UTC for a Full Moon, it also coincides with a whole bunch of lunar eve

Spring Equinox will be rising exactly East and setting exactly West.

Hawaii’s Prince Kuhio was a rock star of sorts an OG of the moder Hawaiian Rebellion

After the rule of the House of Kamehameha ended with the death of King Kamehameha V in 1872, and King Lunalilo died in 1874, the House of Kalākaua ascended to the throne of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. He became an orphan after his father died in 1878 and mother in 1884. Kalanianaʻole was adopted by King David Kalākaua‘s wife, Queen Kapiʻolani, who was his maternal aunt. This practice was called hānai, a traditional form of adoption widely used in ancient Hawaii, which made Kalanianaʻole a Prince of the Kingdom. After Kalākaua’s death in 1891, Liliʻuokalani became queen, and she continued to favour Kalanianaʻole.

He worked in a minor position within the Department of the Interior and Customs Office.

However, in 1893 the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii put in power first a Provisional Government of Hawaii, and then a republic with no role for monarchs.

At age twenty-four,[16] he participated in the 1895 Wilcox rebellion against the Republic of Hawaiʻi. The rebels proved no match for the Republic troops and police, and shortly after hostilities began, all those involved in the rebellion were routed and captured. Kūhiō was sentenced to a year in prison while others were charged with treason and sentenced to execution (commuted to imprisonment). Kūhiō served his full term. His fiancée, Elizabeth Kahanu Kalanianaʻole visited him daily.

You can visit Prince Kuhio Daily in waikiki as he is memorialized as a statue on the sidewalk of Waikiki beach just about 2 bocks east or diamondhead from Duke Kahanamoku statue….across from the Marriot Waikiki

Alii Sunday – Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana’ole

Alii Sundays are among the many long and honored traditions of Kawaiahao Church, which began about 1914. In the 1970’s our people were embarking on a tidal wave of change. In the midst of circumstance and sensing the urgency to unite Hawaii’s people and rekindle their strength and purpose in Ke Akua [God], the Reverend Dr. Abraham Akaka rejuvenated these services as part of the larger cultural awakening already taking place. He reminded us of the importance “to unite as the people of Hawaii and to recognize the leadership our Alii gave us as Christians.” We celebrate nine Alii Sundays which are held as part of a larger series of celebrations recognized by the Benevolent Royal Societies, Alii Trusts and the Hawaiian Civic Clubs of which always occurs on Sundays or the Sunday just before the birthday of the Alii. Join us as we celebrate these Alii and the many blessings from Ke Akua together.
