Colette Higgins is the Dean of Academic Affairs, Division I & Academic Support, at Windward Community College. In 1887 Queen Kapi’olani undertook a journey from Hawaii to London and back. Dean Higgins is the author of the Blog “In the Footsteps of Kapi’olani” and has been a frequent speaker on the life and legacy of Queen Kapi’olani. Dean Higgins has walked in Queen Kapi’olani’s footsteps and studied contemporary writings and investigated the Queen’s journey. We will discuss the motivation for the Queen to undertake this long and strenuous trip, where she went, what she saw, who she met, and what we should remember from Queen Kapi’olani’s travels, life, and personality.
