Death: Jan. 7, 1922

Honolulu County

Hawaiian Prince and Congressman. He was the youngest of three sons of Kauai High Chief David Kahalepouli Piikoi and Princess Kinoiki Kekaulike. Known as the "Citizen Prince," he was in line to become king before the monarchy was overthrown in 1893. In 1917 he formed the first Hawaiian civic club to stimulate education within the Hawaiian community and promote Hawaiian culture. He served as the Territory of Hawaii's delegate to the U.S. Congress from 1903 to 1921. He is best remembered for his successful effort to get Congress to pass the 1920 Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, which provides homesteads for native Hawaiians. It was his dream to save the rapidly declining Hawaiian race from extinction, return tenement dwellers to the land and encourage them to be self-sufficient farmers, ranchers and homesteaders. He was the last Hawaiian, by birth right and designation who could have claimed the throne of Hawaii. Cause of death was heart disease.  (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
