From the first Hawaiian who bravely stood up on a surfboard and gave birth to a worldwide phenomenon, to Hawaiian kapa makers who crafted the finest bark cloth known on this planet—Hawaiian culture has always evolved to new heights through innovation. In the 1700s and 1800s, when new items came to Hawaiʻi, kūpuna adapted these to suit our needs—from slack key guitar music to the beautiful flowing dresses of pāʻū riders. How do we continue this tradition of cultural evolution, vibrancy, and excellence in a modern, urban context? How would you describe an urban Hawaiian space?
