As one of the great community leaders of his generation, Myron “Pinky” Thompson served the lāhui, Hawaiʻi, and the Pacific with distinction, and his work continues to have an impact far beyond his lifetime. The film “Visions in the Dark” recounts the pivotal moments in his life, including the events which served as a catalyst for his dream of the Kaʻiwakīloumoku Hawaiian Cultural Center.

We share this clip in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Kaʻiwakīloumoku Hawaiian Cultural Center, which was observed on September 26, 2012 at Kamehameha Schools Kapālama.
