“Manu Boyd believes in honoring the old, but embracing the new.

“There’s no reason why things Hawaiian can’t be cutting edge,” says Boyd. “We need to remind our people we have to be mindful of who we are and where we come from.

That’s the approach Boyd has taken over the past five years as cultural director of Waikiki’s Royal Hawaiian Center at Helumoa.”
