The Taubman Health Sciences Library will be hosting this exhibit which looks at the history of Kaho‘olawe and traditional voyaging, and how the resurgence of Native Hawaiian culture helped heal the soul of the community from October 18th to November 17th on the 4th floor.

This exhibit explores the lives of early voyagers to the island of Kaho’olawe, the invasion and seizure of the island as it was eventually used by Americans during World War II as a bombing exercise site. Next, the formation of the Protect Kaho‘olawe ‘Ohana is covered along with the recapture of the island in 1976 and the revival of the lost art of long distance voyaging.

Come visit this sublime exhibit to learn more about the history of Kaho’olawe and Native Hawaiian traditions! To learn more, visit here.
