Kumu Hina: In performance

KUMU HINA is a powerful feature documentary about the struggle to maintain Pacific Islander culture and values within the Westernized society of modern day Hawaiʻi. It is told through the lens of an extraordinary Native Hawaiian who is both a proud and confident māhū, or transgender woman, and an honored and respected kumu, or teacher, cultural practitioner, and community leader. Following a screening of the film at the Ford Foundation on Dec. 10, 2014, the documentary's subject gave a memorable performance.
