Our Lā Kū‘oko‘a Mo‘olelo Nūpepa Hat feature the word Kū‘oko‘a in 3-D embroidery on the front. The Kū‘oko‘a design is taken directly from the Hawaiian language newspaper Ka Nupepa Kuokoa heading. Featured above and below the bill are sections of a Mo‘olelo Nūpepa or a Hawaiian language newspaper article that tells of Lā Kū‘oko‘a, Hawaiian Independence Day. The top and bottom bill features and article from the November 27th, 1891 issue of the Ka Leo o ka Lahui newspaper. The featured section on the top highlights 3 important individuals, namely William Richards (Wm. Likeke), Timoteo Ha‘alilio, and George Simpson. The bottom bill explains why we should remember and celebrate Lā Kū‘oko‘a. If you are interested in reading the sections and translation for each article, please visit our instagram @likeole_designs. Our Like‘ole logo graces the side of the cap.
