… have been honored with statues in your city? Kind of a poll/civic awareness test.
Anyway I live in Honolulu and we have
[King Kamehameha I](have been honored with statues in your city?) - Our most famous statue.
King David Kalakaua - Famous for being drunk thus the Merrie Monarch Festival.
Queen Lydia Liliuokalani - Our last monarch. If you find her in the 1900 or 1910 census you’ll see her occupation as “ex-Queen.” Her statue is a little hard to find.
Prince Jonah Kuhio - A new statue not to far from Duke. One of our early Territorial representatives.
Princess Victoria Kaiulani - I live a couple blocks from this. In fact I can see it from my window. The main reason she has a statue is that she died young and tragic and they wanted to pretty up the park that runs by the road named after her.
Duke Kahanamoku - He wasn’t a duke, that’s just his name. Arguably our greatest sports figure.
Father Damien - He’s famous for helping the lepers in Kalaupapa and then dying from the disease himself. He’s since been beatified. Robin Williams was even thinking about playing him in a dramatic movie but I’m pretty sure that project’s dead.
Oddly I don’t think we have any statues honoring National figures.
Sun Yat-Sen - The Chinese revolutionary leader who was defeated by Mao and fled to Taiwan. You know, I didn’t know he spent time in Hawaii.
Mahatma Ghandi - I think we know why he’s famous. I don’t know which came first, the statue or the elephants that Indira gave us? Probably the statue, Gandhi said some really nice things about Father Damien.
Jose Rizal - A famous Filipino nationalist. Executed by Spain.
There may be others but these are the ones I see on an almost daily basis from the street.
