We present the first submillimetre observations of the z=2.36 broad absorption line system Hawaii 167. Our observations confirm the hypothesis that Hawaii 167 contains a massive quantity of dust, the optical depth of which is sufficient to completely extinguish our ultraviolet view of a central, buried quasar. Hawaii~167's submillimetre luminosity and associated dust mass are similar to the ultraluminous class of infrared galaxies, supporting the existence of an evolutionary link between these and the active galaxy population. Hawaii 167 appears to be a young quasar which is emerging from its dusty cocoon.
