Honouliuli Special Resource Study
The National Park Service (NPS) is conducting a special resource study of Hawai'i's World War II confinement sites to determine the best way to preserve the sites and share their history. The U.S. Congress, under Public Law 111-88, directed the NPS to carry out this study because of the importance of the confinement story of Japanese Americans and European Americans interned in Hawai'i during World War II. Mainland sites, such as Tule Lake and Manzanar, California and Minidoka, Idaho, tell part of the story of the Japanese American internment during WWII. However, Hawai'i's unique part of that history is only told on a limited scale.
The public comment period for the draft special resource study and environmental assessment closed July 15, 2014. The NPS is analyzing all public comments submitted and anticipates that the final report will be ready for transmittal to Congress in fall 2014.
