Each issue offers articles on a variety of historical and cultural subjects, including pieces like “Jeremiah Martin’s Journey from Slavery to Freedom in Honau'ino,” talking about an intersection of African-American history in Hawaii, by Guy Emerson of the University of Chicago and insightful features about places in the Kona Districts or their citizens, such as “Naluahine,” about a renowned Hawaiian paniolo and revered kahu, by Cultural Historian Allen Wall and “Maile’s Meanderings: Ka’awaloa, South Kona,” highlighting the history of this area through photos, by Kona Historian Maile Melrose. In addition to these articles which help inspire a lifelong passion and interest in local history, Ha‘ilono shares details about upcoming cultural, historical, educational, artistic and altruistic events and programs provided by Kona Historical Society and those happening in Hawaii. Ha‘ilono also dives into preservation-related issues facing our treasures, precious objects, and resources in our community.
