Have you ever asked yourself where the names of our island streets come from?
That is why we have our weekly “Aloha Authentic” segment to help answer that question and share stories behind the given names.
For the month of November, we visit “English-named” streets.
For this week, we visit Downtown Honolulu to share stories behind Bishop St.
Kamaka Pili also visits our friends at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum to delve deeper into this history of the name.
