Starr Kalāhiki put on a Women’s History Month Concert March 12 as part of The Lili’u Project at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.

Kalāhiki and Queen Lili’uokalani were “both committed to building awareness and recognition to Hawaiian self-determination” and remain “a testament to the strength and power of the legacy of the Hawaiian Nation,” the NMAI said of this pair.

The concert’s music was “about love, healing, forgiveness, loss, beauty and gratitude,” the NMAI said, and is part of the Lili’u Project, Kalāhiki’s attempt to draw attention to the music and poetry of Queen Lili’uokalani. This free concert was held in the Potomac Auditorium of the NMAI in Washington and was also livecast online.
