Pu`olo: The Gifts We Bring-Kona Historical Society

Through historical photographs and artifacts showcased alongside contemporary artworks from three Kona artists, “Pū‘olo: The Gifts We Bring” will illustrate a deeply significant Hawaiian concept, also shared by many cultures, of the importance of taking a gift when one travels, and being prepared to express one’s respect and appreciation in the form of a pūʿolo, a small package or bundle. Artwork, oral histories, photos and artifacts reflecting Native Hawaiian, Japanese, Portuguese, Filipino, Chinese, and English heritage appear alongside each other to illustrate a tapestry of cultures that create Kona’s unique sense of place.
