Our Mission

Punawaiola, which is translated as “spring water of life,” thematically represents how our past nourishes and sustains us today. We are dedicated to the collection and dissemination of digitized Hawaiian Kingdom historical and legal materials. The hope is to maximize public access to these important resources.



Below are just a few images from Punawaiola's repository. Join us as we delve into the past, to forge a path forward.
