2016 ALI'I SUNDAY SCHEDULE
Ali'i Sundays are among the many long and honored traditions of Kawaiaha'o Church, which began about 1914. In the 1970s, Reverend Dr. Abraham Akaka reminded us of the importance "to unite as the people of Hawai'i and to recognize the leadership our Ali'i gave us as Christians." We celebrate Ali'i Sundays just before the birthday of the Ali'i which are held as part of a larger series of celebrations recognized by the Benevolent Royal Societies, Ali'i Trusts and the Hawaiian Civic Clubs. You are invited to join us.
