Hawaiian Antiquities Exhibition @ Queen Emma Summer Palace ongoing!
Early Hawaiian society pre-dates the arrival of Captain James Cook to the Hawaiian Islands in 1778. Cook discovered an indigenous people who used the elements of stone, wood, and plant, nature’s provisions, to produce tools, weapons of warfare, fishing equipment, household goods, and garments necessary for life in an isolated environment.
Members of the organization and numerous other donors have helped acquire early Hawaiian antiquities and the museum’s collection has grown. Today Hānaiakamalama houses this valuable collection. Come and see the collection of traditional tools and art made by skilled Hawaiian craftsmen.
