Mai Poina...






The live actor reenactment and viewpoint performance of Mai Poina. Don't Forget. About the events leading up to the 1893 illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom and Queen Lili'uokalani. Here the group moves to 'Iolani Palace. Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl and Shiro Kawai act out the 'eha and kaumaha of the day. Victoria reads the Queen's words. Shiro portrays a Japanese plantation worker very upset with what is occurring. Truly beautiful performance...
