Aloha Festivals Royal Courts Investiture

The Aloha Festivals Royal Court Investiture (Ka Ho’ola’a O Na Ali’i) was held on on Aug. 25 2007, at high noon at Halema`uma`u Crater, believed by some native Hawaiians to be the home of Pele. The Ali`i (royal monarchs) will be adorned with their reigning symbols of royalty to the sounds and sights of ceremonial chants and hula. This festival is held on the last Saturday in August every year at the Halema`uma`u Crater in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Below are some photos of the ceremony including the arrival of the Royal Court, traditional hula dancing, historical re-enactment, and the playing of ceremonial musical instruments.
