Kaho olawe Aloha Aina
Produced by the Protect Kaho olawe Ohana, this documentary traces the history and activism on Kaho olawe Island, from ancient times through the years of ranching, U.S. military bombardment, and the modern-day struggle to stop the bombing and reclaim the island. A very special performance to follow the screening by Hawaiian guitar extraordinaire Makana!!! Kalani Queypo (Blackfeet/Hawaiian) will present his short film Ancestor Eyes to start the evening. Do not miss this!
