July 31, 2018: Sovereignty Restoration Day

For those of you who have been following Punawaiola’s recent series of blawg postings, we have been highlighting collections that commemorate Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea, or Sovereignty Restoration Day. On July 31, 2018, we will be celebrating the 175th anniversary of this day.

Thomas Square, the location for a new 12-foot statue depicting Kauikeaouli in “royal regalia with an outward arm gesturing towards a flag,” will be unveiled on July 31.
