Mānoa Heritage Center

E Komo Mai

Welcome to Mānoa Heritage Center — a 3.5-acre living classroom that promotes the understanding of Hawaiʻi’s natural and cultural heritage.

Visit the Center

Come and be inspired!

A guided tour of Mānoa Heritage Center gardens and Kūkaʻōʻō Heiau introduces visitors to the beauty of Hawaiʻi’s unique cultural and natural heritage.

MHC Public Programming Update

Aloha mai kākou,

We have reopened for tours of 6 people (max) on weekday afternoons and select Saturday mornings. Please see Event Calendar for specific dates and times.

Please visit the Event Calendar above to register for a tour.

In addition, we ask that all visitors and volunteers have their temperature checked upon arrival at MHC, consider wearing a mask, and practice social distancing both indoors and outdoors.

Thank you for helping us to keep our community safe. We hope to see you soon!

During these uncertain times, we want to leave you with this quote shared by our friends at the Polynesian Voyaging Society:

“We are each made for goodness, love, and compassion.  Our lives are transformed as much as the world is when we live with these truths.”

– Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu

PLAN A VISIT

Enjoy this introduction to Mānoa Heritage Center created by recent Mid-Pacific graduate Garrison Lagapa (class of 2018). This short film was a senior project, and part of receiving his Hawaiian Studies certificate.

ʻUhiʻuhi
Caesalpinia kawaiensis/Mezoneuron kavaiense  🌱 Federally endangered with less than 50 individuals in the wild
🌱 Member of the pea family
🌱 Wood is extremely hard, durable, and dense, sinks in seawater
🌱 Early Hawaiians used ʻuhiʻuhi wood for many different things from war clubs and kapa beaters to heʻe (octopus) spears and makau manō (shark hooks). It was also a good wood for hale (house) posts and rafters  🛷 Used to make sled runners for the sacred sport of hōlua or heʻe hōlua (mountain sledding, lava sledding) played during Makahiki season 
- Only for aliʻi (chiefs/chiefesses) and akua (gods/goddesses)
- Sleds were typically ridden lying chest down or crouching. Only the most skilled and courageous did it standing
- Sleds were 6” (15.2 cm) wide and could be up to 14 ft (4.3 m) long, weigh up to 50 lbs. (22.7 kg) & reach speeds of up to 60 mph (96.6 kmh)  #UhiUhi #CaesalpiniaKawaiensis #MezoneuronKawaiense #NativeHawaiianPlants #EndemicHawaiianPlants #FederallyListedEndangered #ManoaHeritageCenter #ManoaValley #FlowerFriday #Friday Flower #Hōlua #HeeHōlua #LavaSledding #HawaiianWarClub #KapaBeater

The ʻaʻaliʻi behind our classroom is in bloom with both male (1-2) and female (3-4) flowers! ʻAʻaliʻi flowers are small and not very showy. What you’d normally see on an ʻaʻaliʻi bush/tree are the fruit capsules (5).  This indigenous plant is known for its strong wood and for seldom breaking or falling over.  There are several ʻōlelo noʻeau (Hawaiian proverbs) that allude to the strength of the ʻaʻaliʻi, such as:  He ʻaʻaliʻi ku makani mai au; ʻaʻohe makani nana e kulaʻi
I am a wind-resisting ʻaʻaliʻi; no gale can push me over

Join us on Thursday, January 20 for our first Virtual Kahaukani Conversation of 2022.  Puanani "Nani" Anderson-Fung, an ethnobotanist of Hawaiian and European descent currently pursuing a graduate degree in the Botany department at UH Mānoa, will share a presentation entitled:
"You can learn a lot from a plant name — in this case, Hawaiian laua‘e."  This presentation is intended to be a fun, fast-paced story of how faith in the synergism of indigenous and global plant science, allowed Nani to solve the mystery of the Hawaiian plant name laua‘e — by showing that it actually names two very different fragrant fern species— and how this led her on a journey across Polynesia, tracing the genealogy of this name, which begins as a name for aromatic trees, that began in Tonga and spread throughout Polynesia!  If you love detective mysteries, historical intrigue, Polynesian migration theories, or the plants, languages, culture, or history of Polynesia—this talk will keep you entertained.
