Hawaiian Word of the Day – Ka Hua ‘Ōlelo O Ka Lā:

Kūhiō

Definition: Known primarily as “Kūhiō” or by his childhood nickname “Prince Cupid,” he
remains the only Member of Congress born into royalty.

Topic From The Tropic:

Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole – Ke Ali’i Maka’āinana (Prince of the People) and is well known for his efforts to preserve and strengthen the Hawaiian people.

What The Fact?! (WTF)

When Princess Kaʻiulani turned nineteen, Queen Liliʻuokalani asked her to consider marrying either Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole or brother Prince David Kawānanakoa. The Queen reminded Kaʻiulani, “It is the wish of the people that you should marry one of the Princes, that we may have more Ali’i.”

Kaʻiulani replied that she would prefer to marry for love, “I feel it would be wrong if I married a man I did not love.”

Destination To Paradise:

Kōloa, Kaua’i, an old plantation town.

Hawaiian Legends & Mythology:

Prince Jonah Kūhiō

Fortune Cookie Saying:

Don’t wait for success to come; go find it!
