The Kamehameha Lei Draping Ceremony has been a celebration of culture, traditions, protocol and aloha since the 1969 unveiling of the Kamehameha I and Saint Damien statues in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda. 

The 2017 theme returns us to the battle cry of Kamehameha; "I Mua!  E Na Poki`i, a inu i ka wai `awa`awa, `a`ohe hope e ho`i mai ai."  Forward my young brothers and sisters and drink of the bitter waters of battle, there is no turning back until victory is secured.
