Reading into Hawaiian History Month
September is Hawaiian History Month, a very special time for all of us at da Shop to share in the recognition of Hawaiʻi's history, culture, and heritage. Commencing with the late Queen Liliʻuokalani’s 185th birthday on September 2, Hawaiian History Month is spearheaded by the Hawaiʻi Ponoʻī Coalition and honors the memory of Hawaiʻi’s beloved queen. It also recognizes both the vibrancy of Hawaiʻi’s rich culture alongside the atrocities and wrongs committed against the Hawaiian people, holding space for celebration, mourning, and deep reflection.
We love to spend this deep reflection time in between the pages of books. We encourage you to stop by da Shop to browse our extensive selection of books on Hawaiian history and culture, starting with some of our top picks:
