A Lovely Article About the Late H.R.H. Princess Ka’iulani of Hawai’i

On April 13, 2011, writer Deborah O. Melvin wrote a nice article for the Big Island Weekly newspaper entitled,”The Shattered Vase, A Hula Drama”, about the late H.R.H. Princess Ka’iulani of Hawai’i and the new hula dance, The Shattered Vase by Kumu Paul Neves.

According to Ms. Melvin the new hula by Mr. Neves, “…focuses on the princess’adult life, her uncle King Kalakaua’s death, her aunt, Queen Lili’uokalani’s imprisonment in ‘Iolani Palace, and her trip from schooling in England to Washington, D.C.”

  1. There are numerous great publications and sources on Hawai’is Ali’i as I’m sure most are aware. For any who aren’t or want to find more here are some great sources.
    Hawai’i: The Royal Legacy, by Alan Seiden (a magnificent coffee table illustrated book with much in depth info), Onipa’a: Fave Days in the History. Hawaii’s Story by Hawaii’s Queen by Queen Liliuokalani. Ruling Chiefs of Hawai’i: Revised edition by Samuel M Kamakau and Kamehameha and His Warrior Kekuha’upi’o. Also you can search extremely in depth in various ways on wikipedia (though of course here sourcing is sometimes important on specific details). I hope this is of use. Another good book is Kaumuali’i: King of Kaua’i by Kawananakoa and High Chief Kalokuokamaile: Younger brother of Kamehameha I by David A W Castro.

    I hope this is of help. Aloha and Mahalo, Ken
