Screening of "Longing for Hawai'i" and Q&A with Filmmaker Katia Kalei Barricklow and Hawai`'i Historian Dr. Ron Williams, Jr.
More than two thirds of Native Hawaiians live on the US mainland and not Hawai'`i. One east coast `'ohana’s journey into the past uncovers a hidden family connection to the Kingdom of Hawai’i. This short documentary film is a personal journey filled with resilience in the face of colonial erasure. Once forgotten heroes are honored with connections strengthened by transgenerational aloha. A testament to the enduring legacy of Hawaiian nationalism that bridges Hawai`i to the US mainland with voices from the past.
