Hawaiʻi Governor David Ige and Lt. Governor Douglas Chin have proclaimed October 2018 as Archives Month for the state of Hawaiʻi! What a tremendous step for Hawaiʻi and the Archival community. It is amazing to see the appreciation and recognition for the many repositories that contain the rare and special treasures which not only provide insight into Hawaiʻiʻs history and culture, helping to contain the legacy of the people of Hawaiʻi and so much more. This is a great opportunity for the public to learn and engage with the vast collections of historical documents, records, information etc. that are held in special collections available to the public at the archives. Archives are able to link the history of Hawaiʻi represented in the diverse population, rich heritage, unique culture as well as link Hawaiʻi to the U.S. and preserve that history and encourages learning, research and insight into Hawaiʻiʻs communities. Thus, does this mean that there is more of an initiative for Hawaiʻi archives to be supported within their own communities? What does this proclamation mean for archives? Does this proclamation engage the community in any way? Do you feel that there was enough publicity and public presence of this proclamation in Hawaiʻi? Is there sufficient events or activities to engage the publics interest in archives? Any thoughts on this subject?
