26th Annual Maritime Archeology and History of the Hawaiian Islands (MAHHI) Symposium 2015

The 2015 MAHHI Symposium was held at the NOAA Daniel K. Inoyue Regional Center on Ford Island (See http://www.corporateservices.noaa.gov/ocao/prc/)  David Cottrell, Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority (GHHSA) board member and Captain Constance Allen, Education Program Director GHHSA and I formed a panel to present, “Pacific Passages: Lady Washington in Hawaii” at the symposium sponsored by NOAA, UH Marine Options Program, and MAHHI Foundation http://mahhi.org/Welcome.html.

We stayed at the East-West Center at University of Hawaii and a UH shuttle bus took us to Ford Island. We were able to tour the fabulous new facilities and take a short walk to the Battleship Utah Memorial nearby. A symposium celebration with heavy pupus was held at La Mariana Sailing Club Tiki Bar at the conclusion of the program http://www.lamarianasailingclub.com/

Keynote Speaker Jonathan Kamakawiwo’ole Osorio began with a Hawaiian song and spoke on The Peaceful Sea: Pearl Harbor to Kaho’olawe.”
