Synopsis:
This biography of Liliuokalani starkly reveals the usurpation of Hawaii from the Hawaiian people and the entire period of missionary and foreign encroachment in the islands.

Queen of Hawaii from 1891-1893, when the crown was usurped by forces seeking an American alliance, Liliuokalani's leadership extended beyond government. Widely traveled, she was also a scholar of her culture and its history, a songwriter of over 200 pieces, including 'Aloha ‘Oe', a forerunner of the women's movement, a leader in social and benevolent aid projects, and most of all, a lover of the world and all humanity. Her life epitomizes the Hawaiian spirit.

A sweeping drama of power and grace, The Betrayal of Liliuokalani captures Hawaii as it was - and always will be - in the hearts and minds of those who have tasted the spirit of Aloha.
