  • The story of the statue lost at sea and the memory of the King it represents is very moving. Tucked into sleepy Kapaau at the North end of the Big Island it is a poignant reminder of the Native Hawaii...  more »
  • This statue is the original of King Kamehameha the Great, and before it came here it was lost at sea! How awesome is it that it was found and placed here!  more »
  • In the period of time around King Kamehameha Day huge amounts of leis get placed around this statue's great neck, then maybe in that case it might be worthwhile to make a special trip to see, but othe...  more »

  • We went on Kamahamahema Day, which is June 11th every year. We arrived from Kona when the ceremonial draping of the statue of Kamehameha was underway. A local historian recited much of the story of Kamahemaha, and introduced a dance group, which performed several traditional works. After that, there was to be a parade at 11am (later than usual because the day fell on Sunday), but the procession did not appear until about 40 minutes later. While waiting, we met Koa and Pat, his grandmother. They had several relatives and many friends in the parade, which was mostly on horseback. After the Grand Marshall, Kahua Ranch was represented by at least a dozen and a half riders and a tram full of many more of their business "family." Riders (locals) represented the islands that the famous king united under his rule with different colored costumes and leis for each, and lovely girls playing the parts of each island's princesses. Other community groups, like 4-H, also had their floats representing them. Each equestrian group had a motorized vehicle followining it with a couple of young men who had the delightful job of cleaning up after the horses. It is a small, close-knit community where all greet each other affectionately. The locals speak English, and some may speak Hawai'ian, but there is also a dialect that they speak amongst themselves that begs interpretations for those not familiar with it. We left right after the parade, but now regret not sticking around for the rest of the festivities, food, and cultural activities. If you are on the Big Island on June 11th, be sure to attend the ceremonies. In any case, visit while the remaining giant historical albizia tree is still standing. One of them collapsed just a few days before the festival, and was severely pruned. The other, larger one, may meet a similar fate due to its age and condition.
  • This is the original which was sunk off the Falkland Islands. And then recovered after another one was built and put in Honolulu. Beautiful and you can read the history across the street. He united all the Islands!
  • Interesting sight. How could you drive up there without seeing this historic statue?
  • Park around behind the building and walk around the front. Public restrooms are available here. Good lunch across the street but I cannot remember the name. Ackerman's store is also a great place for clothes and jewelry. Rest under the gigantic banyan trees. The most peaceful, non-touristy town on the Big Island.
  • Nice place to stop by while visiting our showing visiting family. The some good reading material around the statue to give you some background on the island. Some nice shops and restaurants across the street too check out before you continue on your adventure.
