Are you the repository for Henry Kuʻualoha Giugni’s personal papers?

No. Our name honors the memory of Henry Kuʻualoha Giugni, former United States Senate Sergeant-At-Arms and long-time aide to Senator Daniel Inouye.  Although there is footage of Henry Giugni in our collections, we primarily house moving image materials from a variety of sources which relate to and document the history, culture and stories of the people of Hawaiʻi and which illuminate life in Hawaiʻi from different regions and eras.

How do I search your collections?

There is a basic keyword Search Bar at the top of each page on our website which searches titles in our cataloging database. Search options on the Results page include limiting to Digital Content Only; refining by Subject and Person/Organization; and limiting to a specific Date Range. You may also browse our collections through the Explore page and our Most Popular and Recently Uploaded videos on the homepage.
