This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo.
The North Hawai'i Education and Research Center in Honoka'a has added a new component with the opening of its Heritage Center. The Heritage Center will capture and perpetuate the rich, diverse heritage of the Hamakua and North Hawai'i region by collecting, researching and displaying various historical items and documents. It will also train students and community members in curatorial practices, museum exhibit development and heritage management.
The Heritage Center is composed of three entities. One is a public area for research, archives and storage, and two rooms which house exhibits. The permanent exhibit room focuses on Honoka'a’s ancient Hawaiian, plantation era and paniolo history. The other will feature short-term exhibits of local interest.
Its hours of operation are from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. For more news about the University, visit www.hilo.hawaii.edu. That’s the UH Hilo Report. I’m Ken Hupp.
