Untitled[edit]

Kamehameha is from dragon ball z. The transition into western society is extrememly difficult for many countries. Hawaii is one of the few places that transfered as well as it did. Kamehameha represents Hawaii royal classes and priestly classes ruling over their land. A native peoples land is extremely closely related to that cultures religious experience. Hawaii was a type of holy land for the Hawaiin people. they practised thier religion there and had a government also. The kahunas represent Hawaii's priestley class and they also are the surfers. Kamehameha Day is part of early hawaii and modern Hawaii. Where the microcosom of primitive people folk culture with the clash of modern euro-asian development. The clash also mirrors other American people-european people clashes.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.142.56.51 (talk)

dragonball z[edit]

Does this have anything to do with dragonball z? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Qbadge (talkcontribs) 04:57, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

NO, dammit.--Atlantima (talk) 14:45, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

No need to rage, bro. Surely they must be related in some way, whether it be the localization of the tv show, or the original intent of the writers. It seems weird that the name is spelled exactly the same. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.220.35.164 (talk) 20:53, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Protection[edit]

Temporary protection only for June 11 while this article is linked from the main page as a selected anniversary. Ever since it was listed on the main page, several vandalism attempts were made within the course of a single hour from different ip addresses. Page unprotection will happen on June 12. --Gerald Farinas 08:03, 11 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Removed protection. --Gerald Farinas 02:48, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Why does the article not mention why the June, 11th is chosen to commemmorate. --Wendelin 10:47, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Pa‘u?[edit]

What does the word pa‘u mean? I only know the word from a TV show where it applies to a blue priestess, and I doubt there’s any relation. The article just uses the word without bothering to explain it, and there is no Pa‘u article. —Frungi 16:19, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Protection Again[edit]

Should be made yearly, or as long as the page links directly with the main page, more than 30 edits on 2 hours, it is a lot. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Leonoel (talkcontribs) 05:14, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Protection Once Again[edit]

I personally had to edit the article twice in less than 5 minutes. Once it had the word KAMEHAMEHAAAAAAA (more or less) and the other time it had something like "goku lives forever". I agree with the idea of protecting it. Gigakight (talk) 07:38, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Well, it looks like User:Maelwys hasn't yet managed to revert the Goku picture, or at least my computer ain't showing it. I vote for protection as lonk as the day is linked from the main page or from the current events sidebox.74.131.105.46 (talk) 23:13, 11 June 2008 (UTC)


I'm no Wikipedia OR psychology expert, but there's gotta be some easy behavioral way to discourage Dragonball Z references. Perhaps a simple "The Kamehameha (Turtle Destruction Wave) from Dragonball Z is in no way related to the Hawaiian monarch. See (new stub page for Dragonball Z)." My guess is people just want to be the first to announce that yes, it sounds similar to the show. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.96.161.35 (talk) 12:21, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Royal Hawaiian Band[edit]

According to the Wikipedia article on the band (to which reference is made in this article), the band is the SECOND oldest municipal band in the nation, not the oldest. Which Wikipedia article has the correct information? 70.161.208.216 (talk) 14:25, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Good catch. It appears to have been vandalism:[1] I've reverted it. Viriditas (talk) 13:06, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Feast of Kamehameha[edit]

In the early 19th century, missionaries mentioned celebrations during the reign of King Kamehameha II lasting from late April to May honoring the death of Kamehameha I and the accession of Kamehameha II. Do these celebrations count as early forms of Kamehameha Day?--KAVEBEAR (talk) 07:12, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
