Kamehameha Schools 20th annual tribute to Kamehameha III

Birthday Celebration for Ka Lani Kauikeaouli

He Aupuni Palapala Ko‘u – Mine is a kingdom of literacy

Each year, Kamehameha Schools honor Kauikeaouli through an ‘aha mele (concert) celebration and by highlighting an organization that extols the virtues that he lived and loved – kaiāulu a me ho‘ona‘auao – community and education.

This year we’re proud to partner with Moku o Keawe, Hawai‘i Council of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs whose vision is a thriving lāhui, he lāhui ola mau. Their mission: To effectively advocate for the educational, civic, health, cultural, economic and social well-being of our lāhui.
