STORY OF THE DAY
Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole was a prince of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. He became a representative in the Territory of Hawaii as delegate to the United States Congress, and is the first native Hawaiian and only person ever elected who was born a royal. Prince Kuhio was born on the island of Kauaʻi and he was an heir of Kaumualiʻi, the last ruling chief of Kauaʻi. His Hawaiian name Kuhio translated into "Chief who leaned forward as he stood," and "Kalanianaole" meant "ambitious Chief," or "Chief who is never satisfied."
