Princess Ka’iulani

I watched the movie Princess Ka’iulani.

This is the story of a woman who was a princess in the kingdom of Hawaii in the time that the Hawaii was being annexed by the United States.  She was the daughter of a Scottish gentleman and during one point, she was taken out of the country for her safety.

According to the story presented in the movie,  when Hawaii was more in the process of becoming a par of the USA, she spoke to commissioners and helped them decide to make all the people of Hawaii to have the vote, rather than only Anglos with land.  Whether things actually happened this way, I do not know, for this idea does not seem to be included in the wiki page which tells the story of Ka’iulani’s life.
