HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Prior to the final overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom in 1893, Hawaiʻi's sovereignty bad been compromised once before. Fifty years before, Britain sought to take over control of the kingdom. Amy Kalili has more on the upcoming anniversary of the events that unfolded.

A he mea kçia hoʻihoʻi ea e hoʻomanaʻo kûmakahiki ʻia ma ka hopena o Iûlai ma kçia hoʻolauleʻa e kapa kûpono ʻia ana ʻo Lâ Hoʻihoʻi Ea.

This return of sovereignty is celebrated every year at the end of July.

Nui nâ mea e hoʻolauleʻa ai. 

Aia ana ka poʻe hoʻokani pila. Aia ana nâ mea pâʻani no nâ keiki.

We'll discuss Hawaiian issues.

And the flag raising ceremony will be at noon.

Huki ʻia ana i lalo ka hae ʻAmelika, a laila huki ʻia i luna ka hae Hawaiʻi.

The American flag will be lowered and the Hawaiian flag raised.

Kû mai mâkou, piʻi aʻela ka hae Hawaiʻi a me ka lâhui Hawaiʻi.

A he lâ kçia no ka hoʻomaopopo o ka mea pono.

(ʻîmaikalani)

The raising up of the flag is symbolic of the rising up of our people.

ʻOiai ka Hawaiʻi e ʻimi hou nei ʻânô i ka hoʻihoʻi ea, mea nui ka hoʻomapopo ʻana i kçia wâ o ko kâkou môʻaukala.

As Hawaiians seeks sovereignty again, this historical event is very relevant.

ʻO kçia koʻu kuleana no ka hoʻomaopopo i ka môʻaukala Hawaiʻi.
