April 11, 1865, Establishment of the Order
Authorized by the 35th Article of the 1864 Constitution of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i,
King Kamehameha V established the Order of Kamehameha I by Royal Decree on April 11, 1865 at the ‘Iolani Palace. The Royal Decree was made with the endorsement of the King’s Privy Council of State and establishes the Order’s mission and authorizes the Order to carry out its kuleana, in perpetuity, as an institution of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i (Hawaiian Gazette, April 29, 1865).

Historical Note:
Though the Royal Decree specified the new institution as the Order of Kamehameha I (Order), the Order was also recognized as the Royal Order of Kamehameha I from its earliest beginnings.

January 17, 1893, Overthrow of the Kingdom
Queen Lili‘uokalani’s attempt to promulgate a new constitution galvanized opposition forces composed of Hawai‘i born citizens of American parents, naturalized citizens, and foreign nationals. This group, with the support of the American Minister to Hawai‘i, orchestrated the Overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy and the establishment of a Provisional Government.

Historical Note:
At the time of the Overthrow, Queen Lili‘uokalani acted as the Grand Master (Supreme Head) of the Order.

January 17, 1893, Order Goes Underground
Following the illegal Overthrow of Queen Lili‘uokalani and the Kingdom in 1893, the Order was considered a threat to national security and suppressed by the Provisional Government and subsequent Republic of Hawai‘i. As a result, the Order was forced to exist as a secret underground society.

May 13, 1902, Beginning of the Reorganization of Order
On or about May 13, 1902 a group of prominent Hawaiian men met in Honolulu under the leadership of Dr. George H. Huddy, Territorial representative from Kaua‘i, with the specific aim of re-establishing the Royal Order of Kamehameha I. Present at this meeting in addition to George Huddy was James H. Boyd, Abraham Fernandez, Charles H. Rose, William H. Coney, John H. Wise, Rev. J. M. Ezera, David K. Aiona, John K. Nako‘oko‘o, and others.

April 18, 1903, Petition for a Name
On April 18, 1903, a petition was filed with the Treasurer of the Territory, the Hon. A.M. Kepoikai by Henry Smith, Mark P. Robinson, John D. Kolb, Jr., G.E. Smithies, William H. Coney, Carlos A. Long, Issac M. Sherwood, George H. Huddy, Palmer Parker Woods, David Kanuha, Samuel C. Dwight, and John Mauliola Ezera, for the purpose of organizing, forming, and maintaining, a secret association in Honolulu to be styled “Hawai‘i Chapter No. 1, of the Territory of Hawai‘i” and to have and to hold the right to establish subordinate associations throughout the Territory of Hawai‘i. This petition was denied.

Again on May 8, 1903, a second petition was filed with the Treasurer of the Territory, signed by Henry Smith, Mark P. Robinson, John D. Holt, Jr., Samuel C. Dwight, John M. Ezera, and Issac H. Sherwood, with the name changed to “Hawai‘i Chapter No. 1.” The petition was granted.

May 13, 1903, First Meeting of Hawai‘i Chapter No. 1 Order
On May 13, 1903, at the old “Foster Hall” in Honolulu, the first formal organizational meeting of the Order took place. Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole was chosen the first Ali ‘i ‘Ai Moku, the highest post in the Order, a position that he held until his death on January 7, 1922.

May 13, 1902, Restoration of Order
After Hawai‘i became a territory of the United States in 1898, Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana‘ole, lead a torchlight ceremony around the statue of Kamehameha (Oahu) and publicly declared the restoration (return to public light) of the Order in 1903. As the last surviving designated heir to the throne, had it not been for the overthrow, Prince Kūhiō would have succeeded Queen Lili‘uokalani as King of Hawai‘i and Grand Master of the Order. As such, Prince Kūhiō possessed the mana (authority and power) to reorganize and perpetuate the Royal Order of Kamehameha I as it exists today.

April 18, 1903, Territorial Recognition of Order
Organizations such as the Order established during Kingdom period was not recognized by the Provisional Government, Republic of Hawai‘i, or Territory of Hawai‘i. Accordingly, the Order of Kamehameha I was not recognized as a legitimate organization by the territory of Hawai‘i. As such, the Order was forced to reestablish its identity in order to be recognized and function as an organization within the Territory of Hawai‘i. However, the Order was not allowed to use its prior name established by the Kingdom of Hawai‘i, i.e., Order of Kamehameha I. In the alternative, the Order was granted (April 18, 1903) and used the name “Hawai‘i Chapter No. 1”.

May 13, 1903, First Official Meeting of Restored Order
At the first official meeting of the Order, Prince Kuhio, heir to the throne, is recognized as the Ali‘i ‘Aimoku (Grand Master) of the Order.

June 11, 1904, Public Declaration
Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana‘ole, lead a torchlight ceremony around the statue of Kamehameha I (Oahu) and publicly declares the restoration (return to public light) of the Order on June 11, 1904.

Historical Note
It is the moʻoʻōlelo (history) of the Order that Prince Kuhio received the consent of Queen Lili‘uokalani to continue the Order and act as its Grand Master. When the Order was restored, it evolved into an organization that was self sustaining (due to the loss of the Kingdom), featured an unlimited membership making the Order available to more kānaka (Native Hawaiian men), and acted to better serve Kānaka ‘Ōiwi (Native Hawaiians) and the Lāhui (Nation).

July 03, 1907, Establishment of Māmalahoa
Māmalahoa is established by Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana‘ole on July 3, 1907 in Hilo, Hawai‘i, with the assistance of Rev. Stephen L. Desha. Sr., as the second chapter of the Order. Charter members include: Stephen L. Desha. Sr., Michael Victor, Joseph Santos, Sr., Puha Hale, Joseph K. Like, and William Henry Beers.

November 16, 1907, Reclaiming the Order Name
It was not until November 16, 1907 that the Territory of Hawai‘i allowed the Order to officially use its originally name, but only in the form of, Hawai ‘i Chapter No. 1, Order of Kamehameha. In time, this name evolved into the name currently use by the Order, i.e., Royal Order of Kamehameha I.

Historical Note
Because the Order could not officially use it is name until 1907, it identified itself and was recognized by the general public by several names including: Kamehameha Lodge, ‘Ahahui Malū Kamehameha (Kamehameha Secret Society), and ‘Ahahui Kamehameha. The Order was recognized by these various names for many years following 1907.

1921 Men Of Hawaii Reference Library
A biographical reference library edited by John W. Siddall is published by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, Territory of Hawaii in 1921. Many members of Māmalahoa are recognized in this work including Ali‘i ‘Aimoku Noa Webster Aluli (pg 11) and William H. Beers (pg 41).

1933, Mamalahoa Highway
In 1933 the County of Hawai‘i recognized Māmalahoa, by naming its new round-the-island belt road in its honor as Mamalahoa Highway. Note: This is contrary to the common yet mistaken assumption that the highway was named after Kamehameha’s “Mamalahoe Kanaawai” or “Law of the Splintered Paddle” which provided safe travel and passage for commoners, first on Moku O Keawe then throughout a untied Hawai‘i.

1934, Hosting President Roosevelt
Māmalahoa had the privilege and honor to help host President Franklin D. Roosevelt on his visit to Hilo on July 25, 1934. The first president of the United States to set foot on Hawaiian soil, Māmala Hoa honored President Roosevelt with an elaborate and colorful Hawaiian parade.
