Hawaii: Culture and Arts
Sip cocktails with hibiscus flowers in your hair!
The Hawaiian Islands host a large culture and arts scene. From Polynesians who originally first settled the islands to immigrants from all over the Pacific Rim, Hawaii’s culture is filled with diversity. This is evident in the many festivals and parades honouring each of the many cultures living there: Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Samoan, Portuguese, European, and American.
Each island celebrates their local culture as well.
Each culture contributes a unique art scene for travellers to appreciate. Visit the popular Bishop Museum or stop by Iolani Palace to get a sense of just how rich Oahu is for the art of its people. See the monument of James Cook in Kauai erected as a tribute for his important role in Hawaiian life and history. Every island presents a unique experience.
