Biography Hawaii: Princess Ruth Ke'elikolani (image) A formidable presence in 19th - century Hawaii, Princess Ruth Ke'elikolani refused to speak English, practice Christianity, or leave the Hawaiian Islands. Though her life was darkened by the deaths of her children and her beloved first husband, she was a popular and strong force who resisted the kingdom's drift toward annexation. In keeping with Princess Ruth's own devotion to Hawaiian language and culture, this documentary is presented in two versions: English and Hawaiian.
