The Aha‘ula Collection is an historic series of 14 featherwork, woodwork, and painting displays that highlight the state’s rich history, culture, and environment. This first-of-its-kind series depicts some of Hawaii’s most legendary leaders who were the original stewards of the land in Hawaii. This was commissioned by the nonprofit the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative in 2013 with the goal of reaching thousands of residents and visitors .
The leaders depicted in the painting “Aha‘ula O Kamehameha Kunuiākea” served as the caretakers of the islands, overseeing how lands were managed. This series serves as a link to these historic environmental efforts.
