Who is she?
Ruth Ke'elikōlani, also known as Princess Ruth was born in 1826. She was a member of both the Kamehameha Dynasty and Kalākaua Dynasty, and Governor of the Island of Hawai'i. She became the largest landholder in the Kingdom of Hawai'i, owner of lands that would later become part of the present-day Kamehameha Schools/Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estate as well as the estate of Sam Parker. Without her land or... if it weren't for her land then Princess Pauahi would not have been able to create the Kamehameha Schools.
Do they teach about her at Kamehameha?
I don't remember them stressing how important she is to the Kamehameha Schools. It was more like they glossed over her contributions.
Do they mention her when discussing Kamehameha Schools?
Well in today's paper they didn't mention her:
"What does Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop mean to you?"
They should have also asked, "What does Princess Ke'elikōlani mean to you?"
