Today, July 31st, commemorates the holiday known as Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea. In 1840, a British consul residing in Hawaiʻi named Richard Charlton got into a land dispute with Kamehameha III (Kauikeaouli) and was unhappy with Kauikeaouli's decision against him. In 1842, Charlton meets with Lord George Paulet, a captain in the British Navy. He tells Paulet that British nationals are being mistreated in Hawaiʻi and pushes for annexation. In that same year, Kauikeaouli sends a diplomatic envoy (Timoteo Haʻalilio, William Richards, and Sir George Simpson) to secure international recognition of Hawaiʻi's independence. In February of 1843, Paulet sails to Hawaiʻi and threatens to fire on the people of Hawaiʻi, so Kauikeaouli temporarily cedes power. Paulet orders every hae Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian flag) taken down and destroyed. For five months, the British occupy Hawaiʻi. In the meantime, Kauikeaouli secretly sends a letter to Admiral Thomas of the British Navy, informing him of Paulet's current occupation and requesting help. He arrives in Hawaiʻi and acknowledges the illegality of Paulet's actions. On July 31st, he officially restores Hawaiʻi's independence at the site now known as Thomas Square. The British flag is lowered and the Hawaiian flag is raised. On the steps of Kawaihaʻo Church, Kauikeaouli speaks the words, "Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono." The SOVEREIGNTY of the HAWAIIAN NATION is restored by righteousness. A two-week long celebration is held, and the first Hawaiian national holiday is celebrated yearly. On November 28th, due to the efforts of Haʻalilio, Richards, and Simpson, the British and the French sign the Anglo-Franco proclamation, officially recognizing the independence of the kingdom of Hawaiʻi. This day, Lā Kūʻokoʻa (Hawaiian Independence Day), becomes the next national holiday. view image
