The Kamehameha School for Girls, 1894–1897
The beginning of the end of the Hawaiian monarchy coincided with the year the Kamehameha School for Girls came into being with Pope at the helm. Hawai‘i had officially become a Republic. Sanford Dole and the provisional government declared Hawaiian independence and gained U.S. recognition on July 4, 1894. The scope and sequence of the curriculum, the building, the rules, and the staffing are all covered. The queen was shunned at the official opening to the outrage of the Hawaiian community. Pope knew her pupils would be emotional and confused over the recent state of events when they arrived for school under the American Flag. With no other choice, this chapter reveals what she did to calm their fears.
