`Ahu `ula (Feathered cloak) (cloak; Unknown, 18th century; 1700s; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; FE000327)
Note: On 26 January 1779, the Hawaiian high chief Kalani`öpu`u took this cloak, which he was wearing, and draped it over the shoulders of the English explorer Captain James Cook. He placed a feathered helmet on Cook's head, and laid several other cloaks at his feet. His people brought four large pigs and other offerings of food. Less than three weeks later, Cook was killed at Kealakekua Bay, Hawai`i.
