Even before Kamehameha I founded his kingdom, Native Hawaiians were traveling to distant ports and visiting far-off lands.  Kanaka labor is credited with helping to settle the northwest coast of North America, from fur trading to gold mining, and Hawaiians also participated in the U.S. Civil War!  But what would be sufficiently attractive to draw them away from paradise … and why would some choose to make their new homes permanent?  Join Hawai`i Island historian Boyd Bond this evening for a journey through this little-known aspect of Hawaiian history.

Free to Lyman Museum members; $3 nonmembers.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for evening public programs.

Limited seating; first come, first seated.  Additional parking next door at Hilo Union School.
