Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! Happy New Year!

On January 1, 1903, the Hawaiian Islands were linked by telegraph cable to San Francisco. This was important for Hawaiʻi since electronic communication impacted the speed of communication in a significant way.

Prior to the introduction of the telegraph, communication to and from the rest of the world was sent by written letters and carried by ships. Correspondence and major news would take weeks to reach Hawaiʻi.

The ship Silvertown, from California, laid an underwater cable that connected to a cable system on land at Sans Souci beach in Waikīkī. The Pacific Commercial Telegraph Company’s office in downtown Honolulu received its first incoming message at 8:30 p.m. that same night. On January 3, 1903, the first newspaper stories sent by telegraph were published in Honolulu. “Cable Day” was celebrated on January 5, 1903 at ʻIolani Palace in Honolulu with speeches, fireworks, and a ball.

Today, we share a #ThrowbackThursday photo of keiki participating in hands-on learning in Hawaiian Hall. On this last day of 2020, we hope for peace, good health, and joy in 2021. We look forward to welcoming you and your ʻohana back to our campus in the New Year, and a return to normalcy in the months to come.

We're excited about the new online initiatives we're developing, as well as new, safe and socially distanced onsite activities for the entire family. We can't wait to share these with you, and thank you for your continued encouragement and support. Mahalo nui loa, and Happy New Year!

As we head into the New Year, we’re all hoping for a brighter and better future, and we believe that can start by practicing sustainable actions!

Here at #HawaiisMuseum, we’ve made a number of changes to create a sustainable campus that you can learn about through our “Sustainability Scavenger Hunt!” When you pick up a scavenger hunt map from our Hoʻokipa Desk, you’ll be able to explore our 15-acre, park-like campus with your keiki and ʻohana, and learn about sustainable practices and how you can apply them in your daily lives.

Here are a few sustainable actions you can start now:

Avoid disposable tableware and containers. Package leftovers in reusable plastic containers or recycled glass jars. Consider using cloth napkins, which can be washed and reused.

Compost your kitchen scraps – 24% of the waste Americans send to landfills is organic waste, including kitchen scraps. Taking this waste and composting them helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Lead by example. Teach your friends and family to better understand the impacts of the Holiday Season. Show them how to make their holidays eco-friendly for the years to come, by setting yourself as the example.

Pictured here is the "Plastic Free Pipeline" by artist-scientist Ethan Estess (Ethan Estess Art+Design), surrounded by some of the new Sustainability characters you can find on our map!

“Kōlea lived in Alaska during the summer when the ground was not frozen and insects were easy to find. At the end of summer, he had to make a flight of thousands of miles to the islands of Hawaiʻi where it was warm all year round. Once Kōlea left Alaska, there was no place for him to land until he got to Hawaiʻi. This small creature soared to great heights in order to catch the winds that would carry him across the Pacific in just two days and two nights.”

#TodayInHistory Dec. 19, 1831 -- Hauʻoli lā hānau e Ke Aliʻi Pauahi. With gratitude, we reflect upon the vision and benevolence of our namesake, Bernice Pauahi Bishop.

In her journal entry for Thursday, December 19, 1844, a young Pauahi recounts her 13th birthday at the Chiefs’ Children’s School.

“We have not write on [sic] our journal for a long time because we had something else to do. This is my birth-day and I am thirteen years old. We arose this morning as usual. Mr Cooke & Miss Whitney went to ride before we started for a walk. We took a walk up in the plain & Mrs Cooke on horse back. We had an earlier school to day than usual.”

“We expect to have a party this evening with some of the officers of the Parry [Perry] & others.”

Happy #Kanikapila Friday! It's been almost a week since our live "Kaula Piko: Leʻa I Ke Kani Concert," and we still have chicken skin! The breathtaking performances by our award-winning artists, headlined by the legendary Led Kaapana, captured the incredible acoustics of historic Hawaiian Hall … as did the lovely tribute to the late, great Cyril Pahinui.

If you missed the Concert, no worries -- we'll be doing a Hana Hou of the entire presentation soon, with the full video and beautifully captured sound. Stay tuned!

12/16/2020

During the winter period of Hoʻoilo in Hawaiʻi, one of the most significant seasonal celebrations is Makahiki. Connected to the rising of Makaliʻi (the Pleiades constellation) and the Hawaiian lunar month of ʻIkuwā, ceremonies, offerings, and recreation helped to culminate a period of time dedicated to Lonoikamakahiki, a deified chief of Hawaiʻi Island.

His circuits around the island are continued to this day by communities around Hawaiʻi, accompanied by games like moa paheʻe, ʻulu maika, ʻōʻō ihe, haka moa, and other physical challenges. Specialized rituals and ceremonies are also part of celebrations in Hawaiʻi, alongside pule (prayers) that ask for abundance, life, and healing.

Here at #BishopMuseum, we celebrate Makahiki and the winter months of our year by displaying a special kiʻi (image) that is the only one of its kind in the world today. The image shown in the center of this picture is called an “akua loa,” and is understood to have been used in circuits around the island by high chiefs during Makahiki.

Visit us today to see this special symbol of Hawaiian culture, and hundreds of other cultural objects and natural history specimens on display in our galleries.

It's that time of year when we reflect on what has passed, and wonder how best to show our love and appreciation to the family, friends, and colleagues who make up our ‘ohana. We'd like to share a Bishop Museum-themed gift guide for the people you're thinking about this holiday season.

View our Bishop Museum Holiday Gift Guide now: https://bit.ly/3aasliJ.

Each of these gift ideas not only inspire the recipient to learn more about Hawaiʻi’s rich culture and natural resources, but has the added benefit of supporting Bishop Museum’s mission to perpetuate that knowledge for future generations. Gift purchases such as these allow us to continue to care for our collections, engage in important scientific research, and sustain educational programming that tells the stories of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific.

12/12/2020

#TodayInHistory: On December 12, 1961, Bishop Museum’s newest building was dedicated: Kilolani—Hawaiʻi’s Planetarium and Observatory. Construction had started about a year earlier and this was the first major structure to be added to the Museum’s campus since the 1920s. In June 2003, the planetarium was renovated and renamed the Jhamandas Watumull Planetarium.

The planetarium was designed by Merrill, Roehrig, Onodera & Kinder, Inc. The complex included an observatory with a telescope under one dome and the planetarium under a second dome. The latter could accommodate up to 100 guests. Kilolani, was selected as its original name, meaning “closely observing the heavens.”

Kilolani became particularly significant when long-distance canoe voyaging returned to the Hawaiʻi with the initial journey of the Hōkūleʻa from Hawaiʻi to Tahiti in 1976. The practice of traditional, non-instrumental navigation which had been lost in the Hawaiian Islands saw a revival by the Polynesian Voyaging Society. Bishop Museum’s Planetarium served a crucial role in this revival when Nainoa Thompson, the first Hawaiian to once again become adept at the lost science of non-instrumental navigation, spent hours closely observing the heavens projected on the planetarium’s ceiling.

To ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff, in-person planetarium shows have been temporarily suspended. But we are pleased to welcome you to join us every first Saturday of the month from 7:00–8:00 p.m. HST for our vitrual programming of “The Stars Tonight.”For more information and to register, visit www.bishopmuseum.org/planetarium/.

Bishop Museum is grateful to the Watumull Foundation for their longstanding generosity, making it possible to share the stories of Hawai'i and the Pacific with our community and visitors. With the ongoing philanthropic support of the Watumulls and partners including the City & County of Honolulu Grants in Aid program, the Jhamandas Watumull Planetarium continues to provide unique programming and educational resources to inspire the exploration, celebration, and perpetuation of the extraordinary history, culture, and environment of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific.

My Grandmother Alice Carr de Creeft did the sculpture of David and his dog, who I guess liked to surf as well! I was wondering if anyone has any idea as to what happened to the sculpture?
I'd like to try to identify a lizard/gecko that comes out every afternoon onto my lanai (between 2-4 p.m.). It's body is about 5 inches, the tail another 5, from my perspective. It is gray. No distinguishinging markings anywhere I can see. However, today, for the first time (it must feel comfortable on my lanai), it showed a large red, outlined with yellow maybe, throat "comb" that it expanded at will. I have photos of it sitting still, but was unable to get a video of the throat comb. Any idea how I can figure out what it is? By the way, my house has LOTS of geckos. We have to clean up after them ALOT. Thanks in advance.
Hi there! Very curious about the Kāneikokala statue that "refuses" to be moved. Is there any more information on it beyond what's on the placard?

Beautiful day at Bishop Museum ❤
Today is my 7th Anniversary and one thing I like to do on special days is to see the historical events that happen on that day. I came across this and thought it was interesting 😊
Aloha! Yesterday I watched the full exhibit in Cascais, Portugal about their former ambassador visiting Japan where THEY called the Portugese for "barbarians". I thought that was interesting since the native Hawaiians were called the same by white visitors!
Aloha! Do you know if Princess Ka'iulani went to Portugal and stayed here too, besides to Britain? If so, when and where, and are there any notes about it that I could read in English?
Aloha! This conflict over building the telescope on Big Island, has been going on for a long time. Can you please point me to a source of reference about how it started and why the builders keep insisting when so many protest - why there?
