Correction: Apologies for the error in today’s post. Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole did serve as Hawaii’s congressional delegate and had Native Hawaiian ancestry. However, Prince Kūhiō’s predecessor and Hawaii’s first congressional delegate, Robert Wilcox, was the first congressional delegate with Native Hawaiian ancestry. Mahalo to Keokani Kipona Marciel for pointing out this error.
