Hawai'i State Society of Washington, D.C.
In celebration of Kamehameha Day, which usually occurs each June, the local Hawaiian community has prepared lei using many local mid-Atlantic plant materials. The lei are solemnly presented and draped on the statues of Saint 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 as you watch the Hawai'i State Society and other members of the local Hawaiian community make the lei for this year's lei-draping ceremony.
