Anthropologist Visits Moku‘ula for Talk and Tour
By Maui Now Staff
The Friends of Moku‘ula hosts a talk-story and book-signing event with Dr. Paul Christiaan Klieger, the world-renowned anthropologist and ethno-historian.
Klieger was the original director of the Bishop Museum archaeological research team at the Moku‘ula Island and Mokuhinia Pond site in Lahaina, in 1993, along with Dr. Boyd Dixon.
He subsequently authored the Bishop Museum Press book, “Moku‘ula: Maui’s Sacred Island,” which has become a leading authority on the restoration of the site.
The event takes place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at Nā Aikāne O Maui Cultural Center on Front Street.
Dr. Klieger will also lead a walk around the Moku‘ula restoration site at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26.
