Queen Liliʻuokalani transcended this earthly life on November 11, 1917. At 8:30 a.m. on the 100th anniversary of her passing — November 11, 2017 — churches and temples are encouraged to toll their bells in commemoration.

The tolling of bells will be a central element to a program of remembrance advanced by two Native Hawaiian state senators, Sen. Brickwood Galuteria and Sen. Kai Kahele.
