Lā Hae Hawai‘i

July 31, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

On July 26, 1990, then-Gov. John Waihe‘e signed a proclamation making every July 31 Lā Hae Hawai‘i, or Hawaiian Flag Day, and urged Hawai‘i citizens “to observe due respect for the flag and the proud tradition for which it stands.” Since 1990, Pu‘ukoholā Heiau National Historic Site has celebrated July 31 as Lā Hae Hawai‘i. This year Kalaniakea Wilson will present educational programs on Ka Hae Hawai‘i, Hawai‘i Pono‘ī, Ua mau ke ea o ka ‘āina i ka pono and ‘aha ‘āina, which begin at 8 a.m. at the park’s visitor center. Visitors can make a pū ‘ohe (bamboo trumpet) in preparation for the flag ceremony at 11 a.m. The Royal Order of Kamehameha, Kohala Chapter will play music. Pu‘ukoholā Heiau is one of only three locations where the Hawaiian flag has been dedicated with a Hawaiian ceremony to fly alone as a living symbol of the Hawaiian people. The other locations are ‘Iolani Palace and Mauna ‘Ala Royal Mausoleum. Free admission. (808) 882-7218 (ext. 1011).
