“Kamau a‘e—you carry forward that which needs to be remembered. One thing Hawaiians get: we know what is pono.”
The Hawaiian Sovereignty movement, with its complexities and controversies, takes the stage in this powerful drama. Fresh out of prison, Michael Kawaipono Mahekona joins a group of activists on a mission to reclaim Hawaiian land. As the group splinters over whether to stand firm or compromise on its principles, Michael must decide how to stay true to what he believes.
First produced in 1997, Kamau A‘e returns to Kumu Kahua, sharing its message with a new generation of audiences.
