Hālau I Ka Wēkiu (Kāne)

In 1881, King Dacid Kalākaua embarked on a world tour, and he became the first monarch of any country to circumnavigate the earth.  His departure for foreign lands sparked the composition of many chants in his honor.  This mele "He Inoa No Ka Mōī" from the Bishop Museum Archives documents Kalākauaʻs journey, naming and describing the many countries seen and the seas on which he sailed.
