BLOODLESS

ABOUT

This work was influenced by the diary entry of Queen “Lydia” Lili‘uokalani made to her people during the relinquishment of her power and the annexation of Hawai’i to the United States of America January 17, 1893. She wrote the following:

“Auwe! kuu aloha i kuu Aina hanau ame kuu lahui aloha. Ka iwi o kuu iwi ke koko o kuu koko. Aloha! Aloha! Aloha!”

“Alas! My love for my homeland and my beloved people. The bones of my bones the blood of my blood. Aloha! Aloha! Aloha!”
