In 2002, the Honouliuli site was discovered by volunteers from the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai'i. Since that time, Honouliuli has become the subject of scholarship and awareness campaigns.
President Barack Obama announced the designation of Honouliuli National Monument by Presidential Proclamation on February 19, 2015. Honouliuli National Monument is a new national park unit without formal services and programs at this time.
In the coming months and years, you will see more notices regarding the new monument. Honouliuli National Monument is managed by staff of the National Park Service Pacific West Region.
The National Park Service has completed a Special Resource Study for Honouliuli and other related sites in Hawai`i.
