About

Moanalua Gardens Foundation presents this collection of art, media and moʻolelo for world distribution. We have decades of videos, photos and other media and we realized we needed to make our growing repository available to the public. The support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services provided the foundation to build this archive.

We invite you to enjoy these treasures.
