  • Lanai museum hopes to teach respect for heritage, land

    By Karin Stanton

    Kepa Maly grew up on Lanai, adopted and raised by a Hawaiian couple who taught him how to respect and love the land. Now he wants to ensure the values are preserved so others – resident and visitor alike – can learn to do the same.

    During November, Maly and his wife Onaona, opened the Lanai Culture and Heritage Center to spread the word about Lanai’s history, heritage, and traditional ways.

Join the online community forum celebrating Native American Culture, Pow Wows, tribes, music, art, and history.
