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

Princess Ka段ulani 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段ulani痴 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.
