"Kumu Hina is a powerful film about the struggle to maintain Pacific Islander culture and values within the westernized society of modern day Hawai'i. It is told through the lens of an extraordinary Native Hawaiian who is both a proud and confident mahu, or transgender woman, and an honored and respected kumu, or teacher, cultural practioner, and community leader."--Container.

Interesting and touching. And the charter school at the center of the story is also intriguing. I haven't thought before about the fate of the native Hawaiians when the whites arrived (particularly the priests).

The story is really about accepting our differences. Powerful and moving at the same time. Well done!
