Sailing With Lata: The Original Polynesian Voyager

Kaua'i Museum 2007

Sailing With Lata: An Exhibit at Kauai Museum

Mimi, Larry, and Meph have been hard at work hanging photos, arranging artifacts, and generally getting in everyone’s way at Kaua`i Museum as they prepare for the official opening of “Sailing with Lata” on 27 April. Here are some pictures to show you how the show looked as of 13 April. We plan to update these as the work progresses, so check this site again later.

We hope to have the exhibit ready well before the official opening date, so if you are in Lihu`e, drop by and get a preview. The Museum is at 4428 Rice Street, across from First Hawaiian Bank and the main Post Office. If you need directions or other information, you can phone (808) 245 6931.

The opening reception for the exhibit will be Friday, April 27 at 5 pm. Roselle Bailey will be leading the opening protocol. The exhibit runs from Apr. 27 through Oct. 31, 2007.

30 April, 2007Aloha,The Vaka Taumako Project wishes to thank all those who have contributed to the success of “Sailing with Lata”, the exhibition now on display at the Kaua`i Museum. We could easily fill an issue of The Garden Island with the names of people who have helped us. In the interests of saving print and trees, however, we mention a few whose generosity and kindness have been exceptional. In no particular order, they are: the Kaua`i Museum staff and volunteers, especially Carol, Margaret, Kalei, Dale, and Alan the miracle worker; the Art Shop staff, Kaua`i Business Services, Sign Art, Dan Jackson, Roselle Bailey and the members of Ka `Imi Na`auao o Hawai`i Nei, San’s Flowers and Leis, Keoki’s, Herb Kane, Longs’ Drugs in Lihu`e, Business Support Services, Sondra and Mike Grace, Keya Keita and The Garden Island, and, last but far from least, Paramount Chief Koloso Kaveia and the people of Taumako.We also appreciate the aloha of the many people who called to express concern for those whose lives have been disrupted by the recent earthquake/tsunami in the Solomon Islands. We continue to monitor the situation there, and will post news on this website.

Me ke aloha,
Dr. Mimi George
