Lyman Museum presents Joseph Nawahi’s videobiography, produced by UHM’s Center for Biographical Research on Monday, September 10 at 7pm.  UH-Hilo’s Dr. Kalena Silva leads a discussion following the documentary screening.

Among his many talents was a remarkable artistry in oils (sadly, only a few of his works survive), but Joseph Nawahi was much more:  writer, teacher, attorney, legislator, publisher of a Hawaiian-language newspaper, and advisor to Queen Lili`uokalani, his writings, speeches, and acts in support of Hawaii’s independence define him as a true Hawaiian patriot. 

Admission is $3; free for Museum members.  Seating is limited to 65 persons.  No tickets for presale; first come, first seated.  Additional parking available at Hilo Union School.  The nationally accredited and Smithsonian-affiliated Lyman Museum, located at 276 Haili Street in Hilo, is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00 am—4:30 pm.  For additional information, call 935-5021 or visit
