In celebration of Kamehameha Day each June, the local Hawaiian community has prepared leis using many local mid-Atlantic plant materials. The leis are solemnly presented and draped on the statues of Father Damien and Kamehameha in a private ceremony in Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol, where following the ceremony visitors to the Capitol can enjoy them. Come learn about Hawaiian traditions and culture. Watch as the Hawaii State Society and other members of the local Hawaiian community make the leis for this year’s Kamehameha Day.
