Hawaiian Participants Sing ‘Kaulana Nā Pua’

On the last day of the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Hawaiian musician Aaron Salā and other Hawaiian festival participants joined in singing the song “Kaulana Nā Pua,” written to protest the 1893 overthrow of their kingdom. The lyrics celebrate the strength and values of the Hawaiian people.
