I have been a student of United States history for over ten years with a concentration on Hawaiian history for five years. I create my tours to be informative, funny and to delve into history others are afraid to talk about.
A historical walking tour that takes you on a journey through the life of Queen Lili`uokalani, a high born chiefess who witnessed her kingdom's unwilling transformation from its own country into the territory of a foreign power. This tour takes place at 9:30am and is about 100 minutes long. We start in front of the statue of Lili`uokalani (between the Capitol Building and Iolani Palace) and end…
Please wear sunscreen and comfortable shoes.
We start at the queen's statue where you learn about her childhood, family and education. Then we walk through the Capitol Building and learn about her adolescence and her country in the 1800s. We see WA Place, the queen's former residence. After that we walk around the palace grounds and I talk about how her brother's ascension to the throne, the Bayonet Constitution and we finish in the Judicial building where I cover the overthrow.
