New England Events
“My Name is ʻŌpūkahaʻia”
The Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives will present a cultural and theatrical program in association with the bicentennial of the departure of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions’ (ABCFM) Pioneer Company from New England to the Sandwich Isles (Hawaiʻi) in 1819.
The story of ʻŌpūkahaʻia is instrumental in understanding the history of 19th century Hawaiʻi and its connection to New England. Moses Goods, one of Hawaiʻi’s finest actors, presents a theatrical performance which portrays the personal journey that Henry Obookiah experienced and the long-reaching influence this journey had on the history of Hawaiʻi. His performance has reached wide audiences in Hawaii and will be touring throughout New England during the month of October 2019.
