The Healer Stones of Kapaemahu
Opens Saturday, June 18
This new Bishop Museum exhibition, opening on June 18, explores the history and contemporary meanings of four large pōhaku (stones) on Waikīkī Beach. These pōhaku were placed long ago as a tribute to four māhū people of dual male and female spirit, who brought healing arts from Tahiti to Hawaiʻi. Using immersive media and innovative storytelling approaches, the exhibition combines film, art, archival documents, images, and other interactive elements to serve as a reminder of Hawaiʻi’s history of inclusion and acceptance.
Ticket prices vary for admission to museum, Bishop Museum, 1525 Bernice St., bishopmuseum.org
