Restoration of Hānaiakamalama

Aloha kakahiaka,

We hope you all had a great Christmas and wonderful New Year! As we kick off the beginning of 2021, we also kick off the restoration of Hānaiakamalama, the Queen Emma Summer Palace. Last week, restoration commenced with an intimate blessing of the project and all those working closely on the project by Kahu Hailama Farden. Kahu Farden reminded all present of our work to honor the memory and legacy of Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV, through the preservation of their beloved home.

As we continue the work to complete this long awaited project, we want to thank the individuals who diligently campaigned and strove to bring this restoration to fruition. We would also like to thank all of those who donate in support of the Daughters. Through your faithful support we are able to safeguard one of O‘ahu’s historic treasures. We will continue to update you all on the progress and changes along the way!

With deep appreciation,
we’d like to mahalo
