The Legacies of Queen Liliâ€˜uokalani
January 26, 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Hamilton Library Alcove
A free program celebrating the enduring legacies of Queen Liliâ€˜uokalani presented by the Hawaii State Public Library System.
Queen Lydia Liliâ€˜uokalani, the last reigning monarch of Hawaii, was renowned for her music, love for her homeland, and complete dedication to the needs of her people. The Queen expressed her aloha for her people through her actions and the examples she set.
This program will feature selected readings from â€œHawaiâ€˜iâ€™s Story by Hawaiâ€˜iâ€™s Queenâ€ written by Queen Liliâ€˜uokalani, a sing-along of the Queenâ€™s music from â€œThe Queenâ€™s Songbookâ€ published by Hui Hanai, a 10-minute film vignette â€œKuâ€˜u Aina Alohaâ€ that expresses the love of these islands as inspired by the Queen, and a brief talk story moderated by members of the Iolani Guild of the Episcopal Church in Hawaiâ€˜i.
Meleanna Aluli Meyer (artist, art-educator, and filmmaker), who is a descendant of Emma Nawahi (the close confidante of Queen Liliâ€˜uokalani), will serve as narrator of this participatory program.
The Queen Liliâ€˜uokalani Trust, Hui Hanai, Native Books/Na Mea Hawaii, Hawaiian Airlines, Alexander & Baldwin, the Kamehameha V Judiciary History Center, Puâ€˜uhonua Society and the Iolani Guild of the Episcopal Church of Hawaii are sponsoring this 45-minute program that is suitable for ages 12 and older.
