Not on view

Nā wahi pana ʻo Koʻolau Poko features Kapulani Landgraf's black and white photographs of sacred sites in the Windward district of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, taken in response to rapid development on Hawaiian land. The photographs are accompanied by descriptions of each site’s historical and mythological significance, which were sourced from the scholarship of native historians. The descriptions are in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (the Hawaiian language) and loosely translated into English, putting the Kānaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) voice and perspective at the forefront.
