The Native Voices Exhibition, is making its first-ever stop at a U.S. medical school. The exhibit is open through Jan. 2015 at the University of Hawai`i John A. Burns School of Medicine. Native Voices is from the U.S. National Library of Medicine and features insights into the healing traditions of Native Peoples, including Native Hawaiians. A Native Hawaiian oli, or chant, welcomed the exhibit to the medical school campus, on Ilalo Street in Kaka`ako, part of Honolulu County.
Our video features the opening ceremony, which welcomed the exhibit to the medical school on November 17. To see the video without flash player, click HERE.
The trip for Native Voices to come to Hawai`i was sponsored by The Queen’s Medical Center, where the exhibit was displayed for several months before it moved to the John A. Burns School of Medicine.
