The plaque on the Ma Naoheakamalu Manuhii monument reads:
In 1854, President Joseph F. Smith came to Hawaii as an orphaned fifteen year old missionary. He became desperately ill, and for three months was tenderly cared for by a dear sister, Ma Naoheakamalu Manuhii and her husband.
Many years later, returning now as president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this tender incident was recorded:
"In the midst of all the celebrating, a poor blind woman was led to the prophet. She was calling, "Iosepa, Iosepa," Instantly, he ran to her and clasped her in his arms, hugging and kissing her - saying, "Mama, Mama, my dear old mama."
