The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement (CNHA), Kalihi-Pālama Culture & Arts Society (KPCAS), and the Hawaii State Archives have teamed up to restore banners that were marched in the procession for Mōʻī Kalākaua’s 50th Birthday Jubilee. The banners will be hand-carried to an archivist overseas, who will make the repair by hand.
These banners will be added to Hawaiʻis first "Mobile Archive Museum." This mobile museum will make its debut at CNHAʻs Annual Native Hawaiian Convention in November 2023.
Your tax-deductible donation will go towards the KPCAS for restoration costs, helping to maintain these ancient artifacts, for the world to see.
KPCAS is host to the Annual Queen Liliʻuokalani Keiki Hula Competition. The hula banner of Kapiʻolani is particularly significant as it marked the return of hula being practiced openly after decades of repression by the missionaries.
Mahalo nui loa!
