Resolution

 

The plaque marking the location where Captain Cook was killed at Kealakekua, on the Big Island of Hawai‛i has finally been replaced. It was noted to be missing in a short article in the October, 2016 issue of Cook’s Log, with two more follow-up articles in 2017. Karen Hofstad, of Petersburg, Alaska, has been actively pursuing the matter, visited the site by kayak, and met with a Hawaii State Parks archaeologist. The plaque had been removed for cleaning and restoration, and was replaced at the original site during July 12-13, 2018. Here are links to two sites that briefly describe the result.
