This color was exceptionally difficult to name because it was so strong, unique, somewhat ephemeral and rich. We named it Kalapana in great honor of the kamaka maoli of Kalapana; some of whom are family friends and have shared their culture and strength in our children’s upbringing. We honor the regal pride we have witnessed as they have claimed, cultivated and invigorated their culture through the past decades. Caring for the mothers and grandmothers of Hawai’I I have such respect for the multitude of challenges they have overcome to create a beautiful, articulate, knowledgeable generation.

Since 1952, Kīlauea has erupted 34 times. From 1983 to 2018 eruptive activity was nearly continuous along the volcano's East Rift Zone. At the summit, a vent within Halema‘uma‘u hosted an active lava pond and vigorous gas plume from 2008 to 2018. In 2018, the decades-long continuous activity on the East Rift Zone ended, and the summit lava lake drained following an intrusion into, and eruption from, Kīlauea's lower East Rift Zone. A summit eruption from December 2020 to May 2021 created a lava lake within Halema‘uma‘u crater. Learn More
