Monday, April 8th Pa‘ahao Book Drive at UH from 3-5 PM
Several years ago, community activist Andre Perez, raised funds to send 300 books on Hawaiian culture to Saguaro prison. Since these books were not officially catalogued in Saguaro’s library, the administration considered them contraband and BURNED THESE BRAND NEW BOOKS.
Andre is now working with PSD and other entities to raise funds to buy books on Hawaiian culture that will be part of the official Saguaro library.

Last month, we posted articles about buttons produced for the funeral of Princess Kaiulani. JR kindly responded with an image of an example of one of these buttons! Here is the image sent, with the description: 3 15/16″ in diameter. Printed on the backside: “pin lock, patd. May 31, 98”
