"United States Public Records Index," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/K1R6-2FS : accessed 14 Jan 2014), Kamehameha M Maertens, 01 Jul 2005-29 Oct 2007.

Kamehameha Maertens
The gentleman pictured here on the left is Kamehameha Maertens. He is quite familiar with the kahili in King Lunalilo's tomb. Back in 1938 an article in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin listed him as one of the kahili bearers back then. Mr. Maertens' grandson took him to the new kahili event to celebrate Lunalilo's 175th birthday on January 31st at the King's tomb on the grounds of Kawaiaha'o Church.
That, in my opinion, is certainly something worth talking about - a man revisits a part of history that he himself was a part of. I'm not sure how many of us will be around long enough to see history repeat itself or to say we actually had a hand in it!
In the Star-Bulletin article, Kamehameha Maertens was listed incorrectly as a member of the Royal Order of Kamehameha. His first name may have been the reason for the reporter's confusion but he was certainly an important part of the royal procession paying tribute to the memory of a man who was once a very popular monarch.
After all of those years gone by, I can't help but wonder if he ever dreamed that his own grandchild would push for the preservation of the Hawaiian culture through the protection, perpetuation, and restoration of its treasured language <http://apps.facebook.com/causes/causes/124832/about>.
In case you can't get into Facebook, here's the meat of what's on the other end of this link:
"After the unlawful overthrow of the Hawaiian government by white supremacists, four generations of Hawaiian people endured cultural genocide beginning in 1896 when the Hawaiian language was banned as a medium of public instruction. 30+ years have passed since the 1978 Hawai'i State Constitution nominally restored Hawaiian as an official language along with English, yet speakers of Hawaiian cannot vote using their language. Without public information readily available in Hawaiian, the current policy of English-only community services is indeed tantamount to ethnic cleansing! Will you please join with us to implement Hawai'i's Official Languages Act to put this unfortunate era of cultural genocide against Hawaiian speaking people behind us for good?"
