Hawaiian Princess Owana Kaohelelani Salazar leads other Hawaiians in a native song during a ceremony in Statuary Hall at the Capitol as part of events to mark the 100th anniversary of the U.S. annexation of the islands. She is a niece, six generations removed, of King Kamehameha the Great, who was commemorated in the ceremony. Today, there will be a march to Lafayette Square for a Hawaiian Rights Movement rally.
