Heiau of Moloka‘i: The Maps of John F.G. Stokes
December 8, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for another exciting Traditions of the Pacific lecture!
John F.G. Stokes was a pioneer in the field of Hawaiian archaeology. In 1909, he traveled to Moloka‘i where he documented known heiau through photography and detailed mapping. With the generous support of the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities, Bishop Museum’s Anthropology and Library & Archives departments have built a new database that includes Stokes’ unpublished maps of the heiau of Moloka‘i. At this special presentation, Dr. Mara Mulrooney, Director of Cultural Resources will share information about Stokes’ work and legacy, and the museum will celebrate the launch of the new online resource.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
