A Hawaiian anthem

The musical composition “All Hawai`i Stand Together” by Liko Martin captured the hearts of Hawaiian patriots everywhere back in the 1980’s. This music video features the wahine of the Wai`anae coast and others performing the song. Its popularity was due, in part, to the efforts of Kamakahukilani VonOelhoffen, who could be counted on, at countless rallies and events, to lead everyone in the song, accompanying with her autoharp. The song continues to be an anthem for the independence and sovereignty of the Hawaiian Kingdom — which still exists. The ancestors said “no” to annexation of Hawai`i to the U.S. and we continue to say “no” to the illegal occupation.
