WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: This guided walking tour will help participants to learn the unique cultural legacy of Waikīkī. We will explore the lives of Hawaii’s leaders in both ancient and modern times. We will visit it's many historic sites, discuss important people, and historic events that helped to shape Waikīkī into what we see it as today. Participants will build an awareness of the significance of the “Wahi Pana” of Waikīkī as both a sacred place to Hawaiians and a living history in the modern world. It is our kuleana (responsibility) as hosts of our place to understand and know the lineage of our historical leaders, their cultural legacy, and how their decisions impact our community in modern times.

Any participants with health concerns that may inhibit them during the walk or may be agrivated by the heat or sun should also identify themselves to NaHHA staff.
