Kalakaua High School, home of the Kings
Kalakaua High School, home of the Kings is a wonderful high school. We are named after the old cheif, David Kalakaua, who reigned in the 1870's. He brought money into Hawaii by compromising with America and selling sugar. He loved traveling the world and going to great parties, and he died of kidney disease while on a vacation to San Francisco with his wife.

We should be the Kings because it represents the power and pride we have in our school. There is nothing offensive about being called the kings, so there would be no worries about controversies within the school about a new mascot.
