Na Alii was composed Samuel Kuahiwi in 1928 and 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 II’s statement that became Hawaii’s motto. One of Hawaii’s first state holidays is June 11 Kamehameha Day to honor the king that united the islands in 1810.

1. Aloha na ahahui o na alii
Na alii mai na kupuna mai
E paa i na olelo kaulana
E hele a moe i ke ala
Hu wale ae na hoomanao ana
No na alii kaulana
Ua pau, ua hala la kou
A koe no na pua
Ua pau, ua hala la kou
A koe no na pua. (repeat verse)

2. E lei i ka lei haaheo o Hawaii
Ka wehi hoi o na alii i hala
E paa ka mano me ka lokahi
E mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono
He alii o kalani ua kaulana
Ka napoliona o ka pakipika
E lei i ka wehi haaheo o Hawaii
Na hulu mamo like ole
E lei i ka wehi haaheo o Hawaii
Na hulu mamo like ole. (repeat verse)

3. Imi nui o maleka o lolii
Ka wehi hoi o na alii i hala
Aole no nae e like aku
Me ka mea noeau he kupua
He alii o kalani ua kaulana
Ke ahi kanana o ka pakipika
Nana no iulupana pae moku
A pau ma lalo ona
Nana no iulupana pae moku
A pau ma lalo ona (repeat verse).
