ROSO

Royal Order of the Crown of the Star of Oceania

In 1886, King Kalakaua established the Royal Order of the Star of Oceania to help build alliances with notable people throughout the Pacific and advancing his plan to establish a conference of islands across the Pacific.  It was abolished during the overthrow of Queen Lili’uokalani in 1893. Its statutes were rewritten and the award reestablished by the senior heir to the House of Keoua Nui, HRH Princess Owana Ka’ohelelani.

 

The Royal Order of the Star of Oceania or Ka Hoku O Osiania is highly awarded to the head of states/dynasties, 

also as awards of merit to loyal supporters of the royal family and those who provide excellent services in the field of cultural achievement and education in Hawaii and throughout Polynesia.

For nominations, please submit a request to the Chancellor at chancellery@crownofhawaii.com
