Hear the story behind two Hawaiian samplers recently acquired by the DAR Museum (Hawaii was named "the Sandwich Islands" by explorer Captain Cook).

Hear the story behind two Hawaiian samplers recently acquired by the DAR Museum (Hawaii was named "the Sandwich Islands" by explorer Captain Cook). Both were made in schools founded by American missionaries, one by the daughter of missionaries and the other by a native Hawaiian girl at a missionary boarding school. The samplers one in English, the other in Hawaiian tell a story of two very different lives and the intersection of cultures, 50 years before the United States "annexed" Hawaii and 100 years before statehood.

Speaker: Alden O'Brien, Curator of Costume and Textiles, DAR Museum
