The Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) will present “He Lei, He Aloha: This is a Lei of Love, The Legacies of Queen Lili‘uokalani,” a free program celebrating the enduring legacies of Queen Lili‘uokalani, at 19 Neighbor Island public libraries and the Hawaii State Library (HSL) from January 9 through February 13, 2014.
This popular program was presented at nine Oahu public libraries in the fall of 2013 and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from those who attended. The deeply-moving, informative, and educational program brings Queen Lili‘uokalani “back to life” and shares her many legacies that live on today.
Queen Lydia Lili‘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.
