What does ka la ho’i ho’i ea mean to you?

Ka La Ho’iho’i Ea, or Sovereignty Restoration Day, commemorates July 31, 1843, when British Adm. Richard Thomas — for whom Thomas Square was named — ordered the Union Jack removed and replaced with the Hawaiian kingdom flag, ending five months of military occupation by Britain’s Lord George Paulet in recognition of Hawaii’s independence.
