'Royal Hawaiian Featherwork: Nā Hulu Ali‘i' at the de Young

For the Europeans, gold and silver represented wealth. But for early Hawaiians, it was feathers, woven into magnificent garments for their nobility.

The de Young Museum is presenting “Royal Hawaiian Featherwork: Nā Hulu Ali‘i,“ an exhibition featuring more than 75 examples of Hawaiian featherwork.

Developed in partnership with the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum in Honolulu, this is the first major exhibition of Hawaiian featherwork to be mounted in the continental United States.
