Celebrating King Kamehameha the Great’s Birthday on June 11
KING KAMEHAMEHATHE GREAT
Warrior, Unifer, Surfer, Trader, Shaper of Maui
POWERFULLY BUILT, SQUARE-JAWED WARRIOR King Kamehameha the Great completed the unification of the Hawaiian Islands in 12 years. Ten years before, he conquered all of Maui, Lana‘i, and Moloka‘i. Kamehameha’s decisions in the early 1800s shaped Maui as we know it today.
When locals think of Kamehameha, we think of King Kamehameha III Elementary School named after his son, the famous Kamehameha Schools, Kamehameha Avenue in Kahului, and even the the Kamehameha Day state holiday in June.
