Hawaiian & Pacific Cultural Materials

Over 1000 stone implements and  and tools including canoe weights, grinders, sinkers, poi pounders, mortar and pestles, oils lamps, adzes, game stones, religious vessels and objects. They include collections assembled in the early 20th century by Emma Mahelona Wilcox, Alexander McBryde, Walter McBryde, and William Hyde Rice. Some of the objects are very rare or exclusive to Kaua'i and Ni'ihau such as ring and stirrup poi pounders, decorated gourds and makaloa sedge mats made only at Mana and Ni'ihau, and artifacts that belonged to notable historic people.
