During a Department of the Interior public meeting on whether the United States should establish a government-to-government relationship with Hawaii’s indigenous community held at the Hawaii State Capitol auditorium Hawaiian entertainer Palani Vaughan holds up a reproduction of the so-called “red-ribbon letter” that Queen Liliuokalani is said to have given to the U.S. government in response to proposed annexation of Hawaii. On ukelele is Laulani Teal and on guitar is Liko Martin. June 23, 2014
