Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday event information

The Khanate of the Golden Horde brings the age of Genghis Khan alive! And LEAHI (the LEGO® Enthusiasts Association of Hawai‘i) presents their fantastic constructions to the event.

Note: Activities end at 3pm.


Make paper: Learn how to turn note scraps into elegant handmade paper. 

Make a woven pouch: Weave a mini coin purse out of yarn and a cardboard loom. 


Watch Khanate of the Golden Horde warriors at battle, and learn how to combat as fiercely as they do! The Khanate of the Golden Horde is a group dedicated to researching and recreating the arts and skills of the 1200s to 1500s.

See and compare period weapons and armor from Europe (Crusters style) and Asia (Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Mongol and Persian styles).

Kids can test their aim at the archery range. (Moms, don't worry, kids use safety blunt-tipped arrows.)

Don't miss the pumpkin catapult and camp of Mongolian tents.

The LEGO® Enthusiasts Association of Hawaiʻi (LEAHI) show-off their latest creation, a castle fit for a khan or khanum. You can be the creator by entering their drawing contest! Draw your greatest castle creation at the event and LEAHI will pick winning submissions at a later date to turn into actual LEGO models for a Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday in 2014.
