When you step through the doors of the Nani I Ka Hala: Weaving Hawai'i exhibit in the J. M. Long Gallery these days, you'll find yourself transported. Senses immersed, you find yourself inspired to plant a hala tree, call your tutu (grandmother), and weave a bracelet all at once, and that is the power of an engaging exhibit.
Your contribution at this time will directly support new exhibits, stories, and programs in the months ahead. You can make it possible for keiki to experience Duke Kahanamoku's epic Waikīkī wave ride on a surfing simulator in Duke Paoa Kahanamoku. Your support can also help bring the community face to face with the world's most precious examples of Native Hawaiian featherwork from across the globe in Na Hulu Ali'i: Royal Hawaiian Featherwork. Your gift can also help sustain the collections, fuel scientific research, or fund education programs—simply direct your gift to your area of interest.
For your gift of $250 or more, you'll receive a personal copy of the book Ike Ulana Lau Hala (Hawai‘inuiakea) as a special mahalo for your support.
