  • Now in Print– the Stirring Account of the PCC's Birth and Humanitarian Odyssey

    "The Polynesian Cultural Center– Ambassador to the World" is an engaging literary journey. It relates a multi-generational narrative of living Aloha, the Hawaiian spirit of love, respect, and harmony. It tells of the remarkable journey of inspired individuals, both women and men, who came together to give birth to a cultural oasis like no other; a place where the vibrant and diverse cultures of the Pacific find a woven tapestry of heart-felt expression.

    Set against the breathtaking scenic backdrop of Hawaii, the heartwarming story unfolds.  The founders of the Polynesian Cultural Center embark on a mission to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures of Polynesia. It tells how employment opportunities for hundreds of local townspeople and thousands of Brigham Young University-Hawaii students are created. It beautifully captures the spirit of altruism, where cultural preservation and education work hand in hand to benefit future generations. Each chapter provides an opportunity to explore, appreciate, and celebrate the influence for good and the legacy of the Polynesian Cultural Center. Much of the narrative is told through the eyes of Tausilinuu David Hannemann, the first paid employee at the Center.
