E ʻIke Hou iā Lānaʻi
The "E ʻIke Hou iā Lānaʻi" program teaches students to understand what has happened in the past so that they can contribute to building an island that is healthy, a history that is honored, and a community that thrives for generations to come.
Lānaʻi Community Stewardship Program
The Lānaʻi Community Stewardship Program is part of Kuahiwi a Kai, an initiative supported by National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Pūlama Lānaʻi to restore health to the Keomoku Region of Lānaʻi.
Lānaʻi Guide App
Developed in 2016, the Lānaʻi Guide app serves as a free, comprehensive guide resource for students, local community members, visitors, and those who simply wish to gain more knowledge about the island. The app features significant cultural and historic sites on Lānaʻi, including storied places as Waiaʻōpae Fishpond, Kaunolū Heritage Complex, and Hiʻi Agricultural Heiau.
We are home to the largest collection of Lānaʻi-focused archival materials in the world. As stewards of our island's history and culture, we understand our responsibility to keep our collections safe and organized.
