Kuaaina will be partnering with Hawaii based kānaka curators and arts organizations from Oahu, Hawaii Island and Maui with the plan to present smaller curated iterations of the larger exhibit “Hee Nalu: The Art & Legacy of Hawaiian Surfing” that was on exhibit at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ in 2023.

The exhibit covered 2,000 years of surfing history and from the earliest stories of surf deities to contemporary works of art and surfing innovations through the lens of thirteen modern KānakaŌiwi creatives and cultural practitioners.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.
