Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s “Ha’ina Hou – Let the Story be Told"
Explore Lahaina’s unique history with Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s “Ha’ina Hou – Let the Story be told”, held at the Baldwin Home and Wo Hing Museums on Front Street.
A summer of fun feature films start at the Wo Hing museum, Friday August 10th at 6pm, as we share the story of “Finding Sandal Wood Mountain”. This 90 minute documentary examines the lives of men like Chun Ah Fong (Hawaii s Chinese Merchant Prince), Sun Yat Sen (the Father of Modern China) and Hiram Fong (the First Asian U.S. Senator). Through hours of in-depth research and rare, never before seen interviews, you’ll learn the rich heritage and influence of the Chinese people in Hawaii; how they overcame hardship and discrimination while forever changing the history of both Hawaii and China.
Come hit the surf at the Baldwin Home lawn Friday August 10th at 7:30pm, for a 20 minute film featuring surfers Rell Sunn, Clyde Aikau, Rabbit Kekai, Buffalo Keaulana and Alvin Ka'io share their knowledge of the history of surfing, canoe surfing, big wave surfing and popular surfing spots. Lilikala Kame'eleihiwa performs a traditional chant to call for big waves and Dennis Kana'e Keawe introduces the art of holua sledding.
In addition, our popular candlelit tour of the Baldwin Home will be held from 6-8:30pm at a special Ha’ina Hou admission of $5 per person which also includes a tour of the Wo Hing Museum. Children accompanied by a paying adult are free.
Ha’ina Hou is held in conjunction with Lahaina’s 2nd Friday Town Party. The Baldwin Home Museum is located on the corner of Front and Dickenson Street.
