The Bahá’ís of Hawaiʻi are found on every inhabited island of the Hawaiian chain with a history spanning over 100 years since the time of Queen Liliʻuokalani.
“Bahá’u’lláh has drawn the circle of unity, He has made a design for the uniting of all the peoples, and for the gathering of them all under the shelter of the tent of universal unity. This is the work of the Divine Bounty, and we must all strive with heart and soul until we have the reality of unity in our midst, and as we work, so will strength be given unto us.”
December 2001 marked the 100th anniversary of the Bahá’í Faith in the Hawaiian Islands. On December 26, 1901 Agnes Baldwin Alexander, a native of Hawaii, returned to Honolulu from a trip to Rome where she discovered the Bahá’í Revelation.
