The Archive Program
To Preserve and Share for the Children
Establishing the Archives
Central to the mission of the Hawaiian Legacy Foundation is the establishment of an archive that will preserve and share materials created over the past three decades from the ten award-winning documentary film series. The materials include: photographs, letters, original scores and lyrics, completed documentaries, Hawaiian language and music materials, interviews with Hawaiian cultural practitioners and others, scenic and location shots, music and audio interviews, transcripts and tape logs, Hawaiian translation transcripts, and all of the production, education and outreach records from each film. This archive will be a premier place for children and researchers to uncover the stories of Hawaiʻi's rich past through the voices and music of those who came before.
