Friends of King Kaumuali'i
Honoring the Legacy of
Kauai’s Last King
ʻAʻohe hana nui ke alu ʻia
No task is too big
when done together by all
Friends of King Kaumualii


Friends of King Kaumualiʻi began formally in 2012 with the Mission to honor the last and great King Kaumualiʻi of Kauaʻi by:

  • Creating awareness of his reign & role in Kauaʻi/Hawaiʻi history
  • Creating educational and cultural programs for local and tourist communities
  • Erecting an 8-foot bronze statue of the King at Pāʻulaʻula, Waimea (old Russian Fort)

Friends of King Kaumualiʻi received 501c3 federal non-profit status with a cultural/historical/educational designation in 2016.

Because our mission honors an Aliʻi Nui, a Moʻi, it is fitting that
the motto of the campaign be expressed in his native tongue.

ʻAʻohe hana nui ke alu ʻia.
No task is too big when done together by all.

We wish to enlist the support of students; civic, social, cultural, and community organizations; corporate and proprietary firms; and public and private foundations and philanthropies. The names of all donors will be encased in the pedestal of the statue.

Most of all, we aim to enlist the support of families and individuals – the grass roots folk of Kauaʻi – who time and again have demonstrated their kind and generous spirit in causes that reflect pride in our island community.


Join us today in celebrating our beloved King Kaumualiʻi and the rich heritage that is Kaua’i. Interested in volunteering or kokua opportunities? Contact us at kaumualiiohana@gmail.com.

ʻO wau iho no me ke aloha,
