Honoring the Legacy of Queen Liliuokalani

Posted by Ryan Hall
10.05.15

Queen Liliuokalani in 1913 reached out to 6000 Soldiers at the new Army Hawaiian Department at Schofield Barracks, the lands were crown lands taken by the US Government after annexation in 1898. Some say the action of the Queen was her effort to begin a discourse 20 years after the overthrow. The legacy of the Queen was one of justice, nonviolence, and reconciliation. On September 2nd, 2015 and during the month of September in light of CNV a new series of actions took place to commemorate the legacy of the Queen, including a commemoration at Soldiers Chapel, presentations on the Queen’s legacy at Elementary schools on Schofield, and in the community.
