Following the passing of Dr. Aluli late last year, there was a groundswell of support to establish a place on Molokai to share our collective histories and cultural objects.
Over the past few months, a group of 15 plus individuals have met to brainstorm ways to make this possible. Most recently, our group met with Pulama Lima, the executive director of Ka Ipu Makani Cultural Heritage Center, a local non-profit already doing heritage preservation work on Molokai. As a curator, Pulama emphasizes the importance of preserving our history on-island, and the need for artifacts to be cared for as required by conservation standards. These discussions led to the inception of the Molokai History Project.
We look forward to celebrating with you at this auspicious event.
