This 55-minute documentary film that incorporates clips from the 9-minute Kapaemahu animated film is told in 'Ōlelo Ni'ihau with English subtitles. Kumu Hina is eager to welcome you and will host a talk story with the audience after the screening.
The Healer Stones of Kapaemahu:
"On Waikiki Beach stand four giant boulders placed as a tribute to the four legendary Māhū - individuals of dual male and female spirit - who brought the healing arts from Tahiti to Hawaii long ago. Although the stones have survived for centuries, their story has been hidden and the respected role of Māhū erased. The documentary uses rare archival materials, new historical findings, and vivid animation to trace the trail of post-colonial suppression and bring the unexpurgated story back to life."
