Hawaii’s heritage sites connect us to our past, and—with appropriate conservation and stewardship—will continue to do so into the future. With its diverse and unique history, it is imperative that Hawai‘i maintain and preserve the state’s significant sites, including historic and pre-contact sites, buildings, districts, and landscapes. Cultural heritage travel is a growing sector within Hawaii’s largest industry of tourism. The funds raised through heritage tourism can provide for their continued maintenance, and visitation also can engage a strong constituency with interest in their long-term sustainability and preservation.
