Matinée Presentation:

Sailor, canoe builder, and Hawaiian culture/history educator, Kapena Kiko Johnston-Kitazawa, returns to the Lyman Museum to present the third in his series of programs on the harbors and landing places of Hawai‘i Island.  Join him this time for a virtual sail along the coasts of South and North Kohala!  Learn where snow and cold on the shores of a desert coast rivermouth delayed the wedding of a Kaua‘i chief … Sail to places where key events helped forge the Hawaiian Kingdom … View relics of the sugar era, and areas where other societal choices have shaped (and continue to shape) modern Hawai‘i … Consider the effects of geological forces, as well as wind and waves, upon the land and people of the Kohala District.  Kiko’s exceptional presentation is a must-see on either of two occasions:  Monday evening, April 5, or the following afternoon, April 6.
