Palaka & Patch: Summer 2019, The Lauhala Issue


“Palaka & Patch” is an extension of our newsletter “Ha‘ilono: Tell the News,” but more to the point, this publication creates space for what our newsletter has outgrown. Through our publications, we are striving to share stories of our past, while also adapting to a modern way of life. What role does a historical society play in our community today?

Your purchase of this digital magazine supports the publication and printing of future issues of Palaka & Patch. If you’d like to become a sponsor of this publication, please email us at

Enjoy this digital download of the first issue of our newest publication, “Palaka & Patch.” We hope you enjoy each of the 24 pages in this issue, all of them full of beautiful photos and fascinating articles that share the stories of Hawaii, especially the ahupuaʻa of our North and South Kona districts.
