Edith Kanakaole
Edith Kanakaʻole was an indigenous Hawaiian composer, chanter, kumu hula, and custodian of native culture, traditions, and the natural land.
Obverse Side
The obverse side depicts a portrait of George Washington. This design was originally
composed and sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser as a candidate entry for the 1932 quarter, which honored the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth. Inscriptions are LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and 2022.
Reverse Side
The reverse design depicts a portrait of Edith Kanakaʻole, with her hair and lei poʻo head lei morphing into the elements of a Hawaiian landscape, symbolizing her life’s work of preserving the natural land and traditional Hawaiian culture. The inscription E hō mai ka ʻike translates as granting the wisdom, a reference to the intertwined role hula and chants play in this preservation. Additional inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, 25, and EDITH KANAKAʻOLE.
