Kamaʻole also has many other layers of history from the fishing settlements that once surrounded the present day Kalama Beach Park, to the mauka Kamaʻole Ranch land that was sold to finance to the Chinese revolution lead by Dr. Sun Yat Sen. Enjoy an illustrated slide show of the historical and cultural sites that still remain to tell the Kamaʻole story. The slide show will be facilitated by local historical researchers, Lucienne de Naie and Daniel Kanahele.
