Native Hawaiians held a cultural celebration in Nu’uanu in honor of Queen Emma 176th birthday on Jan. 2. A procession took place at the queen’s Summer Palace. Following traditional protocol a newly created white kahili (feathered standards used by Hawaiian royalty) was being presented. The celebration marked the revival of a cultural practice long believed to be lost.
