ABOUT

The vision and mission of the Lāna‘i Culture & Heritage Center (Lāna‘i CHC) includes, but is not limited to the collection, preservation and display artifacts of traditional, cultural, historical and artistic value to the people and island of Lāna‘i—representative of Lāna‘i’s Hawaiian culture, ranching era, diverse populations who built the pineapple plantation and community on the island, and natural history.​

HISTORY

The history of Lāna‘i is rich and diverse, including centuries of native Hawaiian stewardship of the island, followed by rapid change after Western contact. Modern history on the island includes nearly 100 years of ranching and 70 years of pineapple cultivation.
