She is 3rd generation Order from Kauai, Duvauchelle
ʻohana.

A Legacy of Service Spanning 150-Years

Members of my ʻohana have been in the Order from the very beginning and continue to serve today.

My tūtū kāne, Thomas William Martin, Knights Commander, K.C.K., was the first member of my 
ʻohana to be in the Order. 
He was among the very first members of the Order, instituted by Kamehameha V in 1865 (see below). 

Another tūtū kāne, Henry Kapuhili Martin, was a founding member of Māmalahoa, instituted by Prince Kuhio in 1907 (see below).

 

In additon, my pili ʻohana (cousin), George Charles Moʻoheau Kauluheimalama Beckley, was the first Mamo Aliʻi (now Aliʻi ʻAimoku) of Māmalahoa, appointed under the hand of Prince Kuhio in 1907 (see below).

My tūtū kāne, Thomas William Martin, above left, with his very good friend William Luther Moehonua. 

Both served in the 1874 legislature, voted for Kalakaua, and were subsequently injured by Queen Emma supporters in a post election riot (2/12/1874), see bandages on head.

Tūtū kāne served as Ambassador to France under Kamehameha V while William became King Kalakaua's Minister of the Interior and later Governor of Oahu.


Both were members of the Order, Knights Commander, K.C.K., under Kamehameha V (1865). 

My tūtū kāne, Thomas William Martin was from Waiohinu Kaʻū.

My tūtū kāne, Henry Kapuhili Martin was a charter member (Territory of Hawaii Charter) of Māmalahoa and helped to establish Māmalahoa as the second chapter of the Order instituted by
Prince Kuhio in 1907.

My Tūtū kāne was a long time member of Māmalahoa
and served the Territory of Hawaii as County of Hawai‘i Sheriff  in the early to mid 1900’s.

My tūtū kāne, Henry Kapuhili Martin was from Waiohinu Kaʻū.

My pili ʻohana (cousin), George Charles Moʻoheau Kauluheimalama Beckley, was the first Mamo Aliʻi (now called Aliʻi ʻAimoku) of Māmalahoa, appointed by Prince Kuhio in 1907.

He was decorated with the Order of the Crown of Hawai
ʻi and the Star of Oceania by King Kalakaua.  He was a member of the royal entourage that traveled through the United States and received at the White House in 1887.  He was appointed to the Privy Council of State by Queen Liliʻuokalani in 1891.  He served the Order as Mamo Aliʻi from 1907 until his death in 1910. 

My pili ʻohana, George Charles Moʻoheau Kauluheimalama Beckley was born in Waimea, with roots to Waiohinu Kaʻū.

I would be honored to continue my ʻohana legacy of service to

the Order, Kingdom, and Lāhui as Ali'i Nui of our Beloved Order
