Royal Coat of Arms of Hawaii request[edit]

Dear Kavebear,

Firstly I would like to apologize for the delay, there is absolutely no excuse for making you wait for so long without replying to your request. Secondly I will be uploading the other version (the one depicted on the gates of the palace) very soon. If I made a mistake or if you want anything altered please feel free to leave me a message, Sorry again. Regards, Sodacan (talk) 18:15, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks a whole lot. This coat of arm is perfect.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 18:31, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Do you have anymore information on the coat of arms? if there are enough sources we could start: Royal Coat of Arms of Hawaii, that would be awesome. Sodacan (talk) 18:38, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Plenty but I don't have the currently with all my schoolwork.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 18:41, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
No problem, completely understand! I know only a little bit about Hawaiian history, did not know the supporters on either side were actual historical figures, and twins for that matter. Just thought that they were ordinary Koa warriors. Sodacan (talk) 18:47, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
The stripes on the lower right part of the shield seems to be different. It is suppose to end in blue like this one with nine stripes there and eight on the top left. Nine or ten stripes still disagrees with all the rest of the coats of arms. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 19:11, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Fixed. Sodacan (talk) 19:19, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Also if you are ever feeling like you want to do some more there are different versions of this coat of arms on the online Iolani Palace collection.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 19:16, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Sure, I am drawing this version, which is also the one on the palace gates, should be finished soon. Sodacan (talk) 19:23, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Okay. The one on palace invitation is the one I had more in mind; this or this. It's Kalakaua's much more imperial and grandiose version.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:46, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
I will make that one instead. Sodacan (talk) 02:56, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Uploaded the second one, the grand Kalakaua coat of arms is coming soon. Question, I am assuming that the order on this coat of arms is the Order of Kamehameha I?. Sodacan (talk) 16:07, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks it looks great. Yes, it is the order of Kamehameha I, Knight Grand Cross, seen here. Also do consider both link when creating it, I would trust the Iolani Palace this link also.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:52, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Could you improve these two images File:Crown of Hawaii.svg and File:Princess Kaiulani Flag (1875-1899).svg by adding your version of the crown and coat of arms to it? And could you please touch up the drawing of the cronw on File:Kuhina Nui flag.svg? Thanks.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:52, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Also one last thing, what is your opinion on the skin tone? --KAVEBEAR (talk) 21:13, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
I will upload a new version of the crown and those flags. As for the skin tone, I don't really have an opinion, I have made it (in my view at least) the most 'realistic' it could be. So it's probably better if you just give me some advice instead! the colours are easily changed so it's not a big deal if you wanted it altered. Also I now have a copy of: 'Hawaii's great seal and coat of arms' by Meiric K. Dutton, 1960, so I might start expanding on the Seal of Hawaii soon. Sodacan (talk) 03:00, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
Last one done! Sodacan (talk) 12:52, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Attributs du service de table[edit]

The phrase doesn't make much sense without more context. It could mean something like "properties of the tableware of the Gambier king and of the mission". Attribut can also mean "symbolic sign", so it could refer to some sort of marking on the dishes and other pieces that indicate they belong to the king or to the mission. --Xuxl (talk) 17:58, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Now that I've seen your link, the second explanation is the right one. The two designs are those used on the king and mission's tableware to identify them. See for example this Unites States presidential table ware with the seal in the middle [1]. --Xuxl (talk) 06:07, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Agapa[edit]

"Mise au blanc" is not a common expression anymore, but it could have been in the 19th century. It could literally mean that she started wearing white 7 years before, but I don't know what significance this would have. The rest of the paragraph makes it sound that this about wearing white, because "everyone wanted to wear white at her funeral even though black was the usual mourning color". There's a reference to her father having the same disease as the princess, so it may also mean that she was hospitalized for seven years (white is a color often associated with hospitals). --Xuxl (talk) 18:52, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 18:56, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Maputeoa mourut le 23 juin 1857 laissant 5 enfants dont l'aîné Joseph n'avait que 10 ans. Une régence fut exercée par Marie-Eudoxie, la femme de Maputeoa, jusqu'à sa mort en 1869. Il ne restait alors que deux filles et le gouvernement resta pratiquement aux mains de la Mission. Translation: Maputeoa died on June 23, 1857, leaving 5 children, with the eldest Joseph being only 10 years old. The regency was exercised by Marie-Eudoxie, Maputeoa's wife, until her death in 1869. There remained only two daughters and the government was left almost entirely at the hands of the Mission (i.e., the Mission practically ran the government by itself). --Xuxl (talk) 06:03, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I have found a few sources talking more about the situation. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 06:06, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Mangareva sketches follow-up[edit]

Hi Kavebear, a PS to my answer on the Reference Desk for your purposes of dating the portraits. I read a bit more of Captain Dumont d'Urville's book. In the sketch, the man on the right, Mabou Kouike, is not mentioned in the book at all. The man on the left, Mapouteoa (sometimes spelled Mapou-teoa) and his uncle are first met by Dumont D'Urville on Aug 6, 1838. (p. 151) Their descriptions match the sketches: Mapou-teoa as wearing "a blue riding coat, with shirt, trousers and hat" and his uncle as 190 cm tall and "wearing only a shirt." 184.147.138.101 (talk) 12:07, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much! --KAVEBEAR (talk) 15:25, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Please use Special:EmailUser to email me so that I can reply with the article as an attachment. Regards, Worldbruce (talk) 04:12, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Request that the source be sent to my email as well please Worldbruce.--Mark Miller (talk) 07:39, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
@Mark Miller: The article is on its way to Kavebear. If they know your email they can forward it to you, otherwise just send me an email as above, and I'll reply with the article attached. Worldbruce (talk) 08:20, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: What pages was this article on? I don't think you can send me the images I'm guessing since they are copyrighted. Let me know the pages so I can submit an interlibrary loan request at my library for scan copies of the article.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 15:07, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
Alas, Factiva doesn't indicate the original page numbers (or include the photos that went with the story). Now that you have the date and title, could you obtain the page range from the 1998 Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature? If that isn't feasible, a library in my area has a physical copy of the issue. I could scan it, although it might not be until the new year. Let me know if you need me to try. Worldbruce (talk) 16:10, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
That would be awesome if you can do that. And I am in no hurries. Thank you for the help!--KAVEBEAR (talk) 16:13, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately, although the library catalog says they have every issue of Life, two are in fact missing, and this is one of them. So I'm afraid I can't supply the pictures after all, sorry. Worldbruce (talk) 18:37, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Effecting[edit]

In academia, it's perfectly acceptable and even the done thing to "silently" (i.e. without comment) correct obvious slips / typos like this. Awien (talk) 00:48, 16 August 2016 (UTC) (In other words, I checked the source, saw that the error originated there, but judged it appropriate to silently correct it so as not to be perpetuating a misspelling). Awien (talk) 01:19, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

How about inserting [sic]? I don't think it is appropriate to silently correct misspelling in direct quotations.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 01:24, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
It really is ok to correct that kind of trivial slip - but sic is better than nothing. It's definitely not good to do that to a living writer, though. Drawing attention to a spelling mistake really comes across as obnoxious or hostile. Awien (talk) 01:34, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

In 1848, Kapeau contravened the treaty under which the Roman Catholic priests were entitled to import porcelain duty-free by sending tax assessors to attempt to collect taxes on the goods. The actions of the assessors resulted in the smashing of the china, leading the French consul to lodge a complaint over the incident to Admiral de Tromelin, commander of a French warship . . .

Changed. Thanks.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 18:20, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
Btw, I don't know which island you're from/on, but here's a little DYK: Did you know that on the little pebbly beach at Onomea Bay on the Big Island, a person can still find scraps of blue and white Chinese porcelain said to be from a long-ago shipwreck. Presumably not from Mr. Kapeau's incident, though! Awien (talk) 19:41, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
