Aloha, Senator Inouye

‘Ulu‘ulu is saddened by the passing of U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye and we extend our sincerest condolences to his family.

Senator Inouye was always a true champion and supporter of ‘Ulu‘ulu’s mission to preserve and share Hawaii’s moving image history. He was instrumental in the foundation of our archive and his efforts helped secure the first three years of Federal funding for what has become the first moving image archive in the state.

Senator Inouye’s presence is felt daily in our archive, as images of him through the years with his long-time friend and aide Henry Ku‘ualoha Giugni line our walls. We will miss him greatly.

Aloha, Senator Inouye!
