Today we remember Duke Kahanamoku who would have been 125! Hauʻoli lā hānau!  He is being remembered coast to coast — from New YorkWashington D.C. to Los Angeles and all points in between. Here in Hawaiʻi, don’t miss a very special exhibit on Duke Paoa Kahanamoku Exhibit at Bishop Museum through November 30th – you will love it!
At the archive, ʻUluʻulu has an audio recording from the eulogy delivered by Duke’s close friend and radio/TV personality Arthur Godfrey at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral calling this great Hawaiian man “the soul of dignity.”  Contact us if you would like to hear it!
