This subcollection contains the production materials and raw footage for the documentary "Lahaina: Waves of Change." Maui is a place rich in historical and cultural tradition. Once the home of Hawaiian royalty, the first capital of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi and a whaling port, Lāhainā's past century saw the growth of sugar and pineapple plantations and tourism. Now, the end of the plantation era and an increasing reliance on tourism brings new challenges. This documentary captures the spirit of Lāhainā's multi-ethnic community, seeking to build a future while honoring their colorful past. The digitization of this collection was supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities.
