Staff Reviews


Queen Liliuokalani’s desperate plea for the freedom of her country remains unanswered. To this day, the Kingdom of Hawaii remains occupied by a hostile foreign nation who quietly refuses to attempt reparations for their crime. The citizens of that nation believe that the Hawaiian language is dead, that the Hawaiian Constitution is legally null, and that the Native population is negligible. These and other misconceptions cover up the violent takeover and continuing colonialism that still fails to smother Hawaii’s national identity. Discover the perspective of Hawaii’s Queen herself, a heroine whom history threatens to forget--and forgetting is the ultimate act of colonialism. — From Jalen's Picks
