About Us…

Ka Lei Maile Aliʻi Hawaiian Civic Club was formed in 2003 to honor Queen Liliʻuokalani, Hawaiʻi’s last reigning monarch.  Our name is and was, from the beginning, a reflection of the Queen and her close relationship with her supporters, those who loved her and who loved the nation–the different Hawaiian political organizations of the day.  As her supporters were her ‘lei’ throughout the political upheaval at the time of the overthrow of the Hawaiian government, we became her ‘lei’ in the present time, keeping her memory and legacy alive and honoring the aloha ʻāina (patriots) who rallied around her and in support of the country during those tumultuous times.

Today we struggle to maintain our identity as Hawaiians, not as Americans or as Hawaiianized Americans, but as aloha ʻāina, Hawaiian patriots.  We promote the truth of our history.  We carry on because our kūpuna direct us to maintain the kūʻē and to remember them in struggle, as they work alongside us to huli the oppressor.

On December 28, 2016, Ka Lei Maile Aliʻi Hawaiian Civic Club transitioned away from an American organization of organized Hawaiians (Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs) into a Hawaiian organization of Hawaiian patriots (Hui Aloha ʻĀina/Hawaiian Patriotic League).  We became, officially, a branch of the recently-revived Hui Aloha ʻĀina located in Honolulu.

Come and join us–Hui Aloha ʻĀina o Ka Lei Maile Aliʻi! Honor nā kūpuna, those who signed the Kūʻē Petition in support of Queen and country.  Aloha our Queen.
