For May, Aloha 'Oe colorway is named after the song Liliʻuokalani composed the year annexation occurred. The English translation is "Farewell to Thee," and although some stories have the origins of the song being about a farewell embrace between lovers, it's difficult to imagine that it wasn't, in some part, written as a farewell to the Hawaii Liliʻuokalani knew. She had to know that with annexation would come a change to traditional ways of life and knowing, and penning a bittersweet farewell to that life seems just right.
