Inscription.  Born to Chiefess Miriam Kapili Likelike (sister to King Kalākaua and Queen Lili’uokalani) and Governor Archibald Scott Cleghorn. She was the only child born to the last ruling dynasty of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Princess Ka’iulani and her parents lived in Waikīkī and created a tropical garden estate, in the area around this statue, known as ’Āinahau—Land of the Hau Tree. Ka’iulani’s favorite flower was the Chinese Jasmine, which grew wild in the gardens and was given the Hawaiian name—Pīkake—after the beloved pet peacocks that roamed freely around the estate.

Princess Ka’iulani spent many years away from Hawai’i, being schooled as the heir to the Hawaiian throne. After the overthrow of the monarchy, Ka’iulani returned to Hawai’i and fought for the return of the throne to her Aunt Queen Lili’uokalani.

To celebrate the life of Princess Ka’iulani, lovingly referred to by her people as
