“They say she is the most photographed girl in the Islands ...” Pualani Mossman was born on April 16, 1916 in Honolulu. In 1934, Mossman was tapped by the Hawaiʻi Tourist Bureau to star in the first color movie made in Hawaiʻi, intended to promote tourism.
She became known as the “Matson Girl,” appearing in Life, Time and Fortune magazines. For more than 50 years, Pualani Mossman epitomized the image of a Hawaiian hula dancer as the original poster girl for Matson cruises and the Hawaii Visitors Bureau.
