Hawai'i: The Royal Isles

On View: 
Tuesday, March 9, 1982 to Sunday, May 9, 1982

A view of the arts and crafts native to Hawaiian culture—first as they evolved over five hundred years without outside influence, and then as they developed following the introduction of Western culture. Among the ceremonial objects on view are feather capes worn by Hawaiian kings, hand-carved bowls, images, calabashes, tapa cloths, and shell and ivory ornaments.

Organized by Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum of Honolulu. Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and United Airlines.
