Details:The Healer Stones of Kapaemahu exhibition explores the past and contemporary meanings of four large stones that were long ago placed on Waikiki Beach to honor four mahu, extraordinary individuals of dual male and female spirit, who brought healing arts from Tahiti to Hawai?i. Although the stones have survived for centuries, the story behind them has been suppressed and the respected role of mahu erased. Within the Castle Memorial Building, visitors will encounter a life-size rendering of the stones and spirits in the main gallery, then watch their story unfold in a captivating, animated film. Guests will continue from the theater to an enormous room lined with projection screens and be immersed in the long history of the site and its story. This exhibition is an opportunity to learn about the holistic healing beliefs and practices of Hawaiians, who view the body, mind, and spirit as one; the body cannot be made well without healing the spirit. Examples of la?au lapa?au (herbal medicines) and rarely seen 19th century lomilomi (massage) implements will be on display.
