Through October 16: The Healer Stones of Kapaemahu

August 10 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Healer Stones of Kapaemahu exhibition explores the past and contemporary meanings of four large stones that were long ago placed on Waikīkī Beach to honor four māhū, extraordinary individuals of dual male and female spirit, who brought healing arts from Tahiti to Hawaiʻi. Although the stones have survived for centuries, the story behind them has been suppressed and the respected role of māhū erased.

Within the Castle Memorial Building, visitors encounter a life-size rendering of the stones and spirits, watch their story unfold in a captivating, animated film, and then continue from the theater to an enormous room lined with projection screens that immerse the viewer in the long history of the site and its story. The exhibition also explores contemporary māhū culture in Hawaiʻi and the Pacific, through compelling portraits, video interviews and a section devoted to the Glades Show Lounge and Hawaiʻiʻs infamous “intent to deceive” laws.

The exhibition continues through October 16, 2022.
