When the Emancipation Proclamation reached Hawai’i, it was widely published. This is a copy of it in Hawaiian. Although slavery had long before been abolished, Hawaiians saw this a great achievement for the advancement of human rights. Several papers published it in Hawaiian or in English. This one is from Kuokoa 1/31/1863.

Mahalo for sharing all that you do Adam, especially about all the other peoples who came to my “Mothersland” of Hawai’i. These on African-Americans in Hawai’i, especially, which appeals to my Paternal side! BLM✊🏿❤️🤵🏿👧🏾💪🏿👨🏾👩🏾❤️👊🏿🤟🏿🖖🏿🤙🏿✌🏿BLM Aloha, chris aka cdg
