ONE NIGHT ONLY!!! 

Evening Presentation:

The threat of a tsunami is an ever-present reality for all who live in Hawai‘i, and for our island visitors.  In 1997, First Hawaiian Bank donated its Kamehameha Branch building in historic downtown Hilo as a permanent site for the Pacific Tsunami Museum, which was co-founded by Dr. Walter Dudley and Jeanne Branch Johnston. 

The Museum is not only a superb repository of oral histories, information, and images pertaining to the tsunami phenomenon in Hawai‘i, but captivates visitors, residents, and students of all ages with its educational and visually compelling exhibits.  The Museum stresses that, through awareness and education, no one in our Islands should ever again die as the result of a tsunami. 

Whether you lived through the tsunami that devastated Hilo in 1946 or in 1960, or have only heard the news reports, you’ll appreciate this poignant presentation by Kini Elia-Gonzalez of the Pacific Tsunami Museum, which serves as a testament to the perseverance of communities to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of disaster.

Evening Presentation:

Madame Pele’s most recent period of high activity has affected people across Hawai‘i Island, in many cases with devastating effects.on lives and well-being.  While we do not lose sight of these effects, and we do what we can to help our ‘ohana, the fact remains—and perhaps it’s a bit uncomfortable to recognize—that the 2018 eruption of Kīlauea has produced some of the most visually beautiful images of our planet in a transition both destructive and creative. 

One of Hawai‘i’s leading photographer/videographers has put together a breathtaking presentation, a mix of both photos and videos highlighting the Kīlauea fissure eruption from Day One.  Andrew Hara shares his personal experiences throughout the eruptive events; how his visual media were able to help families, communities, and government agencies; and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to record 27,000 detailed photographs of a most significant geological event in Hawai‘i Island’s history.  Share this on either of two occasions:  Monday evening, November 12, or the following afternoon, November 13.
