Announcing our new name ʻUluʻulu

We have been busy the last few months preparing to launch our public website and online digital collection. Part of this process included a slight name change to better reflect who we are as an organization.

Our new name is ʻUluʻulu: The Henry Kuʻualoha Giugni Moving Image Archive of Hawaiʻi. ʻUluʻulu is a Hawaiian word meaning collections, gathering or assembly. This is a fitting description for our archive and our mission to perpetuate and share the rich moving image heritage of Hawaiʻi through the preservation of film and videotape related to the history and culture of Native Hawaiians and the people of Hawaiʻi.
