Chief Paki's Olo

Chief Abner Paki's mid-1800's olo surfboard is currently on tour in Britain, 21st October 2005 - 10th March 2006.

Visit Pete Robinson's site for details:

If the recent press about the board are any indications of future coverage, the Bishop Museum of Honolulu may have made a serious mistake in loaning this valuable native board to those who would turn the importance of the board into a celebration of Captain James Cook's leadership of European dominance over Hawaiian culture and society. To read what I mean, check out:

10/25/2005 - "Cook was first European surfing fan"
