Queen Lili'uokalani Trust
Queen Lili'uokalani did not have any children to give her inherited ancestral lands to which was given to her from her mother, Keohokālole, and it was with these lands that she established the Queen Lili'uokalani Trust. This Ali'i Trust, her enduring legacy to Hawaii’s people, is dedicated to the well being of the least fortunate Hawaiian keiki (children). It came as no surprise to those who knew her when the Queen singled out orphan and destitute Hawaiian children as the primary beneficiaries of her estate. The Queen believed in the advantages of education, that it could transform her people. When Queen Lili‘uokalani executed her Deed of Trust, she set in motion a legacy to improve the welfare of her beneficiaries in perpetuity. Kuleana for the Queen’s mission is perpetuated today through the Queen Lili‘uokalani Children’s Center and the Queen Lili‘uokalani Trust. ‘Onipa'a.
Queen Liliuokalani went on to become an extraordinary musician, composing a remarkable 150 songs including the famed “Aloha ‘Oe.”
