For 30 years, Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities has been caring for our cultural past through our program Hawaiʻi History Day, which facilitates the creation of student-driven historical research projects.
On December 7th, we will celebrate the work of our youth, our teachers, and our stories. Join us as we bring together our students, alumni, and supporters who
believe in the power of cultivating connections between past, present, and future through the remembering and the re-telling of our history.
Come to the Doris Duke Theatre at the Honolulu Museum of Art and be inspired by two moving documentaries.
Explore the resilience of young Japanese Americans interned in the Japanese internment camps.
