I was there when there was the tiki exhibition, but that is no longer listed on the site.
Is the orange feathered tiki head still present in the Polynesian Hall?

Mahalo!
I will have to check it out.
It seems that some of the same tikis remain!

Here's a late 1960's article I found in an old "What to do in Hawaii" magazine.

The current photo of the Grand Hall suggests that two of the Tikis remain on permanent display:

Aloha,

Ki'i. Ki'i are on display at the B.P. Bishop. Tiki ARE decorative and served NO religious purpose. Ki'i are relic's invested with prayer and ritual.

Way to bring it. I can't believe I didn't appreciate that distinction sooner.
