Aloha Liliʻu | A Centennial Observance

#ALOHALILIU | UPON HEARING OF QUEEN LILIʻUOKALANI’S PASSING ON NOVEMBER 11, 1917, CHURCH BELLS RANG ACROSS THE PAE MOKU, TRADITIONAL LAMENTS LEFT THE MOUTHS OF FAMILY, FRIENDS, SUPPORTERS, AND LOYAL SUBJECTS SIGNIFYING THE LOSS OF AN ALIʻI NUI.

On November 11, 2017 (event starts at 8am) at 8:30 in the morning, over 200 churches across the island chain will sound their bells to honor the Queen, just as it happened 100 years ago at the announcement made at the exact hour by Colonel Curtis Iaukea.

Aloha Lili‘u – centennial observance of this day will be filled with the sounds of church bells, pahu, oli and kanikau from every mokupuni. Church bells will toll 100 times, pahu will sound 100 times, 100 pū will resonate, 100 ‘ōlapa will dance in honor. Come and be a part of Aloha Lili‘u on November 11, 2017 at the Queen’s Promenade and Statue at 8:30 in the morning.
