Four Horsemen

“The last great work of Prince Kalanianaʻole was for his people. He labored ceaselessly for more than a year on a scheme of rehabilitation through which it is hoped the Hawaiian may be returned to the land of his ancestors, to live as fisherman and farmer.”

Dubbed the Four Horsemen, Kuhio, Rev Stephen Langhern Desha, Sr, John Carey Lane and Henry Lincoln Holstein worked with others to get “Rehabilitation of the Hawaiians” adopted.  On January 7, 1922, 6-months after he had succeeded in having the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act passed, Prince Kuhio passed away.
