Ke Kauā o Ka Lāhui: The Life of Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana‘ole Pi‘ikoi, a play written by Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl and produced by the Hawai'i Pono'ī Coalition, debuted at ʻIolani Palace in the fall of 2022.

Kūhiō was a challenging and controversial leader, and his story is not widely known. Our hope is that bringing some of his mo‘olelo to life will help us today in grappling with some of the tough issues we face around leadership and civics in our personal lives and in our complex community.

A discussion with a Hawaiian scholar will follow the performance.
