Story Behind the Song | Na Alii | by Ukulele Mele - lanikai-beach.net

Mele Fong aka Ukulele Mele tells the story behind the Hawaiian song Na Alii. Composed by Samuel Kuahiwi in 1928, the song pays tribute to Hawaii’s departed chiefs. The song tells two famous sayings. The first saying is Kamehameha the Great’s Law of the Splintered Paddle that guaranteed safe passage for women, children, and the infirm. The second saying is Kamehameha III’s statement that became Hawaii’s motto.
