The Royal Order of Kamehameha I, Kahekili Chapter IV on Maui will host a 150th Year Jubilee in April.  The event will include a week of festivities beginning on Sunday, April 3, 2016 and will conclude on April 9.

The signature event is being held in celebration of Hawaii’s oldest royal organization established by royal decree in 1865 by Kamehameha V.   It is among several royal societies still in existence today, that continue to uphold distinctive cultural protocol and perpetuate the cultural traditions and practices of Native Hawaiians.
