From the history of the Mahele and the 1893 act of war against the Hawaiian Kingdom to the modern-day struggles for land rights, this video takes a look at one of the first native initiatives for self-governance, Ka Lāhui Hawai‘i.
The story of a Hawaiian family who made a home at Ka Lae (South Point), a remote and rugged area at the southernmost tip of the island of Hawai‘i.
Located on the western tip of the Hawaiian island of O‘ahu, Mākua has long been a place of refuge for Kānaka Maoli, native Hawaiians.
Located on the western tip of the Hawaiian island of O‘ahu, Mākua has long been a place of refuge for Kānaka Maoli, native Hawaiians. One of the last undeveloped valleys on the island, Mākua has become a home for the houseless, the unemployed, working poor, and those that simply want to live the lifestyle of their ancestors.
In 1985, a group of houseless native Hawaiians took a stand for their right to live at Waimānalo Beach Park, an area set aside as Hawaiian Home Lands.
Kānaka Maoli (native Hawaiians) living at Mākua beach in 1983 take a stand to resist eviction by police and government agents. During the process, they learn the history of how they became dispossessed of their lands and government.
