"To connect Hawaii’s people with their culture, traditions, ancestry, and hereditary

claims"

Traditions

We are deeply rooted in Hawaiian tradition and are active with various traditional events alongside with other organizations and societies. The Dynastic Royal Order of the Crown of Hawaiʻi is a main benefactor to our foundation.

Our mission supports the continuity of Hawaiian tradition.  The Kamehameha Foundation and its board members contribute donations for hoʻokupu to our historical memorials of the Hawaiian Kingdom.  Chants and mele are performed to honor the occasion.

The Royal Order of the Crown of Hawai'i along with other organizations and societies conduct celebrations and protocols at various islands.

Royal Societies

The Royal Order of the Crown of Hawaiʻi is a main benefactor of the Kamehameha Foundation.  The dynastic order participates in the Kamehameha Day Aliʻi Sunday at Waiola Church in Lahaina Maui with other royal societies. The hoʻokupu ceremony takes place annually at the royal tomb of sacred Queen Keopuolani.

Special ceremonies are conducted at the Kamehameha statue in Honolulu with Mamakakaua, The Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors.

Also joining in the ceremonies on Kamehameha Day and other events is the Royal Order of Kamehameha I along with other organizations.
