And today, all of Hawaii celebrates his birthday with a state holiday!
There are many celebrations during the month, some lasting as long as a week, or even a month! They include cultural festivals highlighting the culture and traditions of the islands. They may include luaus, dance, music, games, food, canoe races, and parades.
Prince Kuhio was born in 1871 on the island of Kauai. He became heir to the throne after Queen Liliuokalani (who was his cousin).
