Have you ever wondered why the British Union Jack is part of the Hawaiian flag?  Some scholars say that Kamehameha I recognized Britain’s King George III as his liege lord, and that between 1794 and 1843 the Hawaiian Kingdom was actually part of the British Empire.  Tonight, Windward Community College political scientist Dr. Keanu Sai explores the complex and intriguing historical connection between Britain and Hawai`i.

 

Free to Lyman Museum members; $3 nonmembers. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for evening public programs. Limited seating; first come, first seated. Additional parking next door at Hilo Union School.
