Matinée presentation:

Some folks think of our iconic Park as merely (?!) the home of breathtaking natural resources, including plant and animal life, calderas and steam vents and lava tubes, and Madam Pele in all her glory.  But how many of us realize that it also includes a great number of remote—and usually unseen—archaeological sites?  Dr. Jadelyn Nakamura (HVNP) gives us a virtual tour of this amazing human landscape, through photos, from the mountain to the sea.  She covers the early settlement of the lands of Kīlauea, how people lived and traveled there, where they settled and grew their crops … and underscores the role and mission of the National Park Service in protecting and preserving these resources.  Learn more about the environment and the human history that connected the people of Hawai‘i so powerfully to their ‘āina, on either of two occasions:  Monday evening, June 25, or the following afternoon, June 26.

Admission to these wonderful programs is free to Museum members, and $3.00 for nonmembers.  Please support the Museum by becoming a member, and enjoy all Saigo Series programs, all year round, at no charge!  Seating is limited; first come, first seated.  ON MONDAY EVENINGS ONLY, additional parking is available next door at Hilo Union School, Kapiolani St. entrance; park, then walk through our green gate in the rock wall

On Monday evenings, doors open at 6:30PM.  E komo mai!
