Hawaiian History lecture- The Battle of Kuamo’o: A Battle for the Future of Hawaii in 1819

March 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Attend a “talk story” and lecture session with Boyd D. Bond, a North Kohala historian. Mr. Bond will discuss “The Battle of Kuamo’o: A Battle for the Future of Hawaii in 1819”. Boyd Bond’s knowledge of Hawaii’s history stems from his academic studies and from a lifetime spent in Hawaii as a 6th generation descendent of early western settlers in Hawaii. Boyd was raised in Hawaii in a sugar plantation family, living on plantations throughout the state.Of his interest in Hawaiian history, Bond says, “I can’t ever remember a time when I wasn’t immersed in it. Many of the stories of Hawaii’s history are also our family stories.” Bond earned a BA in Hawaiian history from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and went on to earn a masters degree in education.

Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the library 15 days in advance if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is required.
