Step inside Hale ‘I‘ike, the House of Knowledge, and immerse yourself in Hawaii’s extraordinary indigenous living culture. This welcoming place is part museum, part cherished uncle’s living room—a showcase of Hawaiian art and history through the eras of kings, cowboys, and celestial navigators. Come here to “talk story” with Danny Akaka, the resort’s Director of Cultural Affairs and browse the mesmerizing collection of artifacts. If the resplendent portraits of Hawaiian royals don’t spark your imagination, the octopus fishing lures and shark tooth weapons surely will.
