Kauai Pow Wow

I wonder what these Indian folks from the West think of the Pow Wows in Hawaii. Notice the huge stone Japanese lantern in the background of the second picture? And this odd little park is right on the beach.
I wonder if Pow Wow tourism in the West in any way resembles Pow Wow tourism in Hawaii...
I've heard rumors on the wind about formal connections between Indian groups on the mainland and Native Hawaiian groups-- working together to gain a stronger voice for indigenous recognition here and there... I'm such an outsider peering in.
