Hauoli La Hanau e H.R.H. Princess Ruth Keelikolani!
Traditionalist, Royal Governor, Businesswoman, H.R.H. Princess Ruth Luka Keanolani Kauanahoahoa Keelikolani was born February 9th, 1826.
H.R.H. Princess Ruth Keelikolani is best remembered as a staunch traditionalist and shrewd businesswoman. While she owned many chic and beautiful homes she chose to live in a traditional Hawaiian hale. Her politics and business style, for example requiring Olelo Hawaii to be the language of business for all her dealings, reinforced her defiant image. Her brilliant idea to give out long leases and refuse to sell her properties generated such income that she became one of, if not the, wealthiest person in our country.
Our country and citizens deserve a calendar that celebrates our Nation and its diverse beauty. In 2019, we will be sharing many more significant dates that we hope will be representative of who we are as a Nation. If we miss something please forgive us as this is a work in progress!
