Ka'iulani: The Highest Point of Heaven


Since I've been living in Hawaii, I have become even more aware of the struggles of Hawaiian people in the face of "statehood." I have been particularly inspired by the half Hawaiian and half Scottish Princess Ka'iulani, heir apparent to the Hawaiian throne when the US declared Hawaii a protectorate.

The video is very moving and provides, in just eight minutes, a very good overview of the final years of Hawaiian independence. For even more info (and an image of one of Princess Ka'iulani's beautiful paintings), read her story on Wikipedia.

Much aloha,

October 16th, 2007

This movie has taught me a lot about the Hawaiian independence struggle. I honestly wasn't aware of this particular one. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I really love reading and learning about different cultures and their struggles for their freedoms and rights.

I agree that tire pressure can have a big impact on gas mileage especially with the price of gas right now. Have the correct tire pressure can make big saving over a year.

The more you stay in a certain place, the more you feel the lives of the people living there. You can now feel and witness their daily living experiences and their jobs of making it up for a day.

I saw the video and it is nice you made an video biography to share. I love looking at those old photographs. Princess Ka'iulani of Hawai'i I like her.

Hawaii is a good and very progressive place on it's way of making it. They can stand on their own and I believe they can do it. Whatever the opposition would make from the people of Hawaii, they have the right of course as a state of U.S.
