      EVENT DETAILS
      The Conversion of Ka'ahumanuby Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl

      This complex historical drama explores different perspectives on Hawaii’s official adoption of Christianity.

      When Lucy Thurston and Sybil Bingham arrive on the shores of Oahu in 1820, a year after Queen Ka'ahumanu overthrew the traditional Kapu system in ancient Hawaii, they immediately attempt their missionary task. Queen Kaahumanu, however, is more interested in their dresses than any new god and has no desire for any new religion. Sybil and Lucy persevere, and so begins the slow, gradual process of Ka'ahumanu’s conversion. This complex historical drama explores different perspectives on Hawaii’s official adoption of Christianity—from the caste system to notions of monogamy.
