Derek Glaskin – Queen Lili’uokalani – Chest & Flag

Derek Glaskin was entrusted by Uncle Joe Akana with the sacred chest of Queen Lili’uokalani that contained numerous artifacts and the Hawaiian Flag that was flying at the time of the takeover.  Glaskin presented this sacred treasure, that he was entrusted with, to the Ali’i Nui, Dayne Aipoalani, who is King of the Sovereign Polynesian Kingdom of Atooi.

A native Western Australian, Aboriginal and Dutch Hawaiian, Glaskin is not only a tribal oceanic artist but also a storyteller and environmentalist.  At one time Glaskin was called the “Australian Picaso” due to the style of his work.  Glaskin believes that water is the common bond between modern and ancient people.  This intenserelationship with water is evident with Derek’s other passion, surfing.
