HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Before Washington Place became the official residence of Hawaiʻi's Governor, it was the home of Hawaiʻi's last monarch, Queen Liliʻuokalani. This historic landmark will open its doors this weekend for a fundraiser honoring the beloved Queen. Amy Kalili has more.
Ma hea hou aʻe lâ kahi kûpono ma waho o kçia home aloha o ko kâkou môʻî wahine aloha no ko ka Pûʻâ Foundation papahana ʻimi kâlâ e mâlama ʻia ana i kçia hopena pule e hoʻohanohano ana iâ Liliʻuokalani ma o ka haʻi ʻia o kona mau moʻolelo.
What better venue than our Queen's home for the Pûʻâ Foundation's fundraiser that will honor Liliʻuokalani through story-telling.
You will get something that no other visitor who casually goes to the hale gets – the scoops, as the people in Hawaiʻi say, the background information.

It was here that Liliʻuokalani was imprisoned aft her overthrow.
Reconciliation of these wrongs done to the Queen and her people are ongoing.
The Pûʻâ Foundation started by an act of the United Church of Christ in their effort to hoʻoponopono
Or discuss their complicit role in the overthrow in 1893.
